Obama’s Signing Statement on NDAA: ‘I have the power to detain Americans… but I won’t’

Posted: January 1, 2012 in Current Events, World Events

While you were out enjoying yourself last night Obama signed NDAA giving the president the power to attain Americans with no judge or jury for being a “suspected terrorist”.  Anyone with any common sense can see how dangerous this bill could be particularly as our economy continues to implode and civil unrest continues to rise.  

But don’t worry here is a statement from Obama, “Moreover, I want to clarify that my Administration will not authorize the indefinite military detention without trial of American citizens. Indeed, I believe that doing so would break with our most important traditions and values as a Nation. My Administration will interpret section 1021 in a manner that ensures that any detention it authorizes complies with the Constitution, the laws of war, and all other applicable law.”  

Considering how honest Obama has already proven to be I am sure he will keep his word and not authorize indefinite military detention without trial of American citizens or any other future presidents. 

With this now being signed I suspect there is much internal fighting within the government.  Yes our country is run by out of control gangsters funded by international banksters, however I believe there are many good people in the system as well.  This should be looked as another sign the government is continuing to prepare for total economic collapse with the possibility of Marshall Law.  We are truly living in historic times, 2012 is going to be a wild year. 

The ACLU, too, warns about this deception:

President Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) into law today. The statute contains a sweeping worldwide indefinite detention provision. While President Obama issued a signing statement saying he had “serious reservations” about the provisions, the statement only applies to how his administration would use the authorities granted by the NDAA, and would not affect how the law is interpreted by subsequent administrations.

[…] ACLU executive director Anthony D. Romero stated: “The statute is particularly dangerous because it has no temporal or geographic limitations, and can be used by this and future presidents to militarildetain people captured far from any battlefield.”
