The ability to declare a person an enemy combatant without the processes in the 5th and 6th amendments was in HR 6166, which passed under George W Bush in 2006. The difference between this and the provisions in the NDAA is the wording. The wording in the NDAA is much looser as it is "associated forces" as well as the restrictions in the bill are much looser as well.
Will the remaining Obama fans just agree on the term George W Obama already?
