Naomi Wolf on NDAA: How Congress Signed Its Own Arrest Warrants


-December 12th, 2011-

By Naomi Wolf:

I never thought I would have to write this: but—incredibly—Congress has now passed the National Defense Appropriations Act, with Amendment 1031, which allows for the military detention of American citizens. The amendment is so loosely worded that any American citizen could be held without due process. The language of this bill can be read to assure Americans that they can challenge their detention — but most people do not realize what this means: at Guantanamo and in other military prisons, one’s lawyer’s calls are monitored, witnesses for one’s defense are not allowed to testify, and one can be forced into nudity and isolation. Incredibly, ninety-three Senators voted to support this bill and now most of Congress: a roster of names that will live in infamy in the history of our nation, and never be expunged from the dark column of the history books.

They may have supported this bill because—although it’s hard to believe—they think the military will only arrest active members of Al Qaida; or maybe, less naively, they believe that ‘at most’, low-level dissenting figures, activists, or troublesome protesters might be subjected to military arrest. But they are forgetting something critical: history shows that those who signed this bill will soon be subject to arrest themselves.....

Thank you MonetizingDiscontent, for posting this GREAT article.

I will be frowarding copies to my so called 'representatives' in the Senate and the House, as well as telephoning their staff members.

Good Job !

As a lifelong student of history, I can confirm that Naomi Wolf is right on the money: history DOES show that "those who signed this bill will soon be subject to arrest themselves". Incredibly ironic, yet true. Praise the Lord, for She has a great sense of humor!

That's why I'm telling everyone to keep their cool and stay level-headed. I'm NOT saying "Don't be indignant" - absolutely not! I'm saying "Be indignant but be PATIENT and SMART as well", as this is all going to unravel and perhaps sooner than we think.

The NDAA is such DELIRIOUS legislation that even as he was signing it, Obama released a statement disavowing it! And in fact, this WHOLE NATIONAL CALAMITY created by the 1% (see the movie "Inside Job") is so extreme and so mad that it is only a matter of time - a couple of years at the max - till it blows up in the faces of those who are responsible for it.

In the meantime, We The People, let's turn off the TV, stay informed and aware, disciplined and non-violent and KEEP OUR EYES ON THE PRIZE : A NATION BORN ANEW.

You still fall for that left vs. right, liberal vs. conservative routine ? ! ? The establishment is taking us to exactly the same place . . .
