    regardless of what the chicken-littles and Conspiracy Theorists say, this law is no big deal.
    But when they declare that USA is a battle field, they would give themselves the power to arrest US citizens. That's why it's important on the sentence "US is a battle field". It's easy for them to turn US into a battle field.

    Protect your own rights.

    National Defense Authorization Act. (Liberty end)

    Under the ‘worldwide indefinite detention without charge or trial’ provision of S.1867, the National Defense Authorization Act bill, which is set to be up for a vote on the Senate floor this week, the legislation will “basically say in law for the first time that the homeland is part of the battlefield,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who supports the bill.

    The bill was drafted in SECRET by Senators Carl Levin (D-Mich.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.), before being passed in a closed-door committee meeting without any kind of hearing. The language appears in sections 1031 and 1032 of the NDAA bill.

    -----------------
    The New National Defense Authorization Act Is Ridiculously Scary
    David Seaman, Credit Card Outlaw | Nov. 30, 2011,

    Fellow entrepreneurs, Americans, anyone who still cares about this country at all -- this is a must read: By the end of this week, the US government very likely will have the power to lock up US citizens for life at Guantanamo Bay or other military prisons -- without charge and without trial. This means that, in the near future, a controversial Twitter post, attending a peaceful protest, or publishing an anti-Congress critique or anti-TSA rant on Google+ could land you "indefinite detention" for life, in the wording of the bill. No access to a lawyer, no access to trial.

    Yes, you read that right. This would target American citizens, on American soil. Military personnel would be able to come into your house like something out of a Tom Clancy novel and chopper your innocent self down to Guantanamo Bay for life.

    Details: There is a scary provision in the National Defense Authorization Act (fiscal year 2012) which is typically passed by Congress each and every year to continue funding our military operations around the world.

    If it's true and you are not a terrorist, don't let it bother you. If you are a terrorist, then you might think about leaving...right away.
    i'm sure the jews in nazi germany thought the same thing ie: "i am an honest person that is only happening to the BAD jews and not me."

    Considering the government has the authority to decide who is a terrorist, I find this bill to be quite Anti-Freedom. This is one of those bills that I wouldn't worry about it being abused today, I would worry about it being abused in the future. Should the government ever decide that anyone who doesn't agree with the government is a terrorist, this bill could be used against the citizens.

    So the government never gets it wrong?

    Would you allow a camera to watch your every move, 24/7? Why not - if you're not doing anything wrong, what do you have to hide?

    It's sad that our elected officials decided to **** on the Constitution. The courts will remedy this. It will take awhile especially since we will not hold those who voted (or sign) this accountable.

    The terrorists hate us for our freedoms so if we take it away...they won't hate us anymore.
