Sneaky, Slimy Obama

Happy New Year!!!!! Our dear, egotistical, arrogant and American hater President immensely enjoyed his New Years Eve last night. While you were toasting a healthy and prosperous new year, or watching fireworks, Obama was signing into law the Bill that many are not even aware of. Yup. That'd be the Bill that gives him and the military to detain you indefinitely and without a trial. Gitmo anyone? Hmmm.

The Bill is 1844 pages long. I've just started going through it, because I know darn well there are lots of other goodies in it that we don't even know about yet. Most important for now, is Section 1021, below. Gotta go for now. Church services with our daughter.

Subtitle D—Counterterrorism SEC. 1021. AFFIRMATION OF AUTHORITY OF THE ARMED FORCES OF THE UNITED STATES TO DETAIN COVERED PERSONS PURSUANT TO THE AU- THORIZATION FOR USE OF MILITARY FORCE. (a) IN GENERAL.—Congress affirms that the authority of the President to use all necessary and appropriate force pursuant to the Authorization for Use of Military
2 Force (Public Law 107–40; 50 U.S.C. 1541 note) includes
3 the authority for the Armed Forces of the United States
4 to detain covered persons (as defined in subsection (b))
5 pending disposition under the law of war.
6 (b) COVERED PERSONS.—A covered person under
7 this section is any person as follows:
8 (1) A person who planned, authorized, com-
9 mitted, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred
10 on September 11, 2001, or harbored those respon-
11 sible for those attacks.
12 (2) A person who was a part of or substantially
13 supported al-Qaeda, the Taliban, or associated forces
14 that are engaged in hostilities against the United
15 States or its coalition partners, including any person
16 who has committed a belligerent act or has directly
17 supported such hostilities in aid of such enemy
18 forces.

AND how long can they hold you? Indefinitely. Without a trial. Here's the language:

Detention under the law of war without
23 trial until the end of the hostilities authorized by the
24 Authorization for Use of Military Force.
