@BarackObama: Protect #US National Security and #VetoNDAA!
As early as today Congress will vote on the final version of this dangerous defense bill. It then goes to President Obama. This bill threatens both U.S. national security and fundamental American ideals. It would:
- greatly expand the military’s role in domestic counterterrorism, sidelining the FBI and local law enforcement;
- authorize the indefinite detention without trial of terrorism suspects, including American citizens; and
- effectively make Guantanamo a permanent prison.
