    • On January 06, 2012, by erturne - If we didn't have laws like NDAA 2012 (H.R. 1540) then we wouldn't need other laws to protect us. I believe that everyone should have the right to due process, regardless. Holding people indefinitely without a fair trial (even for terrorists) is just plain wrong.

    • On January 06, 2012, by thedreadpirateBeatrix - upon further review of the bill it allows this to be waived by act of congress. NDAA is an act of congress. as the wording is it will not protect us. Senator please revise to give us full protection. thank you.

    • On January 13, 2012, by mgdesmond13 - congress can not overturn our natural liberties. any law repugnant to the constitution is void. I'm surprised they had the ca hones to add this in the bill. Was it a blatant attempt at trying to sell tyranny? I would say, most likely, but it seems to have had the opposite affect. "A government afraid of its citizens is a Democracy. Citizens afraid of government is tyranny!"
