Stop the Militarization of Law Enforcement!
Write your members of Congress and urge them to oppose this bill by voting for amendments that would strip the bill's key provisions from the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). H.R. 968 or The Detainee Security Act would :
- Give the President unfettered authority to go to war in Iran, Indonesia, and elsewhere to fight terrorists;
- Require local law enforcement and the FBI to turn over to military custody any terror suspects, including American citizens, captured in the United States without trial and;
- Make the failed experiment of Guantanamo permanent by barring federal court prosecution of prisoners held there and barring repatriation of innocent men unless ordered by a court to transfer them.
