American Citizens off to Guantanamo

President Obama Signs Indefinite Detention Bill Into Law

“Any hope that the Obama administration would roll back the constitutional excesses of George Bush in the war on terror was extinguished today. Thankfully, we have three branches of government, and the final word belongs to the Supreme Court, which has yet to rule on the scope of detention authority. But Congress and the president also have a role to play in cleaning up the mess they have created because no American citizen or anyone else should live in fear of this or any future president misusing the NDAA’s detention authority.”

~ Anthony D. Romero, ACLU executive director, on 0bama's signing of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDDA)
