Amber Lyon: Why Journalists Fear NDAA. Harvard Law School 2013

This is an excerpt from Journalist Amber Lyon`s speech at Harvard Law School on Feb. 27, 2013. Investigative journalists who cover those the U.S. Government deems ¨terrorists¨ fear they could be indefinitely detained under the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) in retaliation for giving a voice to the other side.

The NDAA allows for the indefinite detention of U.S. citizens without trial until the end of hostilities and is perhaps the most egregious violation of the U.S. Constitution in history.

Then they should not be in the business and doing a disservice to the public while there.

What a poor title as well. Anytime I see a title or headline cursing and swearing like that I know there is going to be a lot garbage. That is why I could never get into someone like Carlin or others. Just attention seekers imo. ie. is it really cool for adults to swear in public where there is no danger? It seems so childish. I used to work with men in their 50's and 60's who swore all the time. 8 hours a day swearing and cursing. I think they really did not any other way to communicate. For them it was a normal way of expressing themselves. I can honestly say it did eventually wear upon me as well. I started to swear at just the dinner table inadvertantly. ie. please pass the 'effen' salt etc. I did not even realize I did it until people gave me dirty looks. I think many of them now are pretty much gone in the head.

In Russia there are journalists who risk their lives everyday. Those are real journalists.
