Democracy Now - Chris Hedges - Sues Obama Admin Over Indefinite Detention of U.S. Citizens Approved in NDAA

Okay, this is American news but, you know it's a Corporate World and the American War Machine is being (brutally) attack-doggish in their 'policing of a so-called global terror war', so what goes around will eventually come around ... to us all.

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Chris Hedges has filed suit against President Obama and Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta to challenge the legality of the National Defense Authorization Act, which includes controversial provisions authorizing the military to jail anyone it considers a terrorism suspect anywhere in the world, without charge or trial.

"It is clearly unconstitutional," Hedges says of the bill. "It is a huge and egregious assault against our democracy. It overturns over 200 years of law, which has kept the military out of domestic policing." [source DEMOCRACY NOW]
