Obama Administration Violates Sec. 1021 of NDAA 2012Submitted by plethora123456 on Thu, 08/29/2013 - 23:02
Now that it is 100% accepted and admitted knowledge that our Federal Government is working with al-Qaeda in Syria, doesn't that mean that any and all politicians that approved this are in violation of Sec. 1021 of the NDAA 2012 act? It states:
SEC. 1021. AFFIRMATION OF AUTHORITY OF THE ARMED FORCES OF THE UNITED STATES TO DETAIN COVERED PERSONS PURSUANT TO THE AUTHORIZATION 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 Force (Public Law 107-40; 50 U.S.C. 1541 note) includes the authority for the Armed Forces of the United States to detain covered persons (as defined in subsection (b)) pending disposition under the law of war.
(b) Covered Persons- A covered person under this section is any person as follows:
(1) A person who planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, or harbored those responsible for those attacks.
(2) A person who was a part of or substantially supported al-Qaeda, the Taliban, or associated forces that are engaged in hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners, including any person who has committed a belligerent act or has directly supported such hostilities in aid of such enemy forces.
Technically, our "government" is a "covered person" under this section. This means that our government under the law can be detained indefinitely, right?
This alone is enough for AT LEAST impeachment, right???
