But the truly disturbing provisions of the law allow the president, Obama or any future president to indefinitely detain American citizens without a trial if the commander-in-chief deems it necessary to ensure national safety.
So, happy New Year and welcome to the police state. Forget all those constitutional protections about the right to due process, a speedy trial and facing your accusers. Those are all terribly inconvenient, don’t ya know This is a monumental, historic change to the way our government functions outside of the Constitution, but what makes it even worse is Obama’s fumbling, half-hearted justifications about why he agreed to sign the measure.
Here’s a gentle reminder, Mr. Obama: You took an oath to uphold the Constitution, not to seek methods for circumventing it. Numerous civil libertarian and human rights groups oppose the new law including Amnesty International and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).
