NDAA question

I just got this response on NDAA.

In this case, is there much ado about nothing?

I am looking at the actual law right now which you can read here: http://docs.house.gov/billsthisweek/20120514/CPRT-112-HPRT-R... When you do a search on Section 1021, which I did, we see very clearly that IT DOES NOT apply to US citizens. Here is the quote: "(9) Section 1021 of such Act states that ‘‘Nothing in this section shall be construed to affect existing law or authorities relating to the detention of United States citizens, lawful resident aliens of the United States, or any other persons who are captured or arrested in the United States.’’ Again, this is from the actual law. The NDAA is a budget bill and has nothing to do with creating a law to detain any American citizen for terrorists acts against the US. We already have laws on the books that deal with treason. I just wish we would actually observe them! What happened to Brandon Raub was handled wrong and as with those who have been falsely accused and convicted and spent time in prison, they sue which Raub probably has a lawsuit for what happened. It had nothing to do with the NDAA. Although, I think what Raub did was STUPID, given that we have nut jobs all over this country spouting their mouths off about civil war and wanting to start one, we can surely thank the likes of fear hustler Alex Jones for crap like that. Raub was let go by a judge and his lawyers will take care of the rest.
