Two bills have been introduced to amend the NDAA to make it clear that Americans cannot be detained indefinitely and denied their Constitutional Rights. HR 3676 has 54 co-sponsors and HR 3785 has 3.

Text of H.R. 3676: To amend the detainee provisions of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 http://www.govtrack.us/congress/billtext.xpd?bill=h112-3676
"To amend the detainee provisions of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 to specifically state that United States citizens may not be detained against their will without all the rights of due process afforded to citizens in a court ordained or established by or under Article III of the Constitution of the United States." Sounds good. Language will determine how good.. Thanks for posting Norm..

It's a beginning any way. I applaud many things accomplished by the Obama administration, but this one stuck like a rock in my throat.

This is good news. And we can thank Ron Paul for this:

''Ron Paul introduced a bill to his House colleagues to repeal section 1021 of the NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act).

Ken,

Ron Paul has 3785 with only 3 co-sponsors. 3676 has 58 now, and Ron Paul is not one of them. If you want to thank Ron Paul, be my guest. But all told he is only one of 63. We can thank all kinds of people, including Ron Paul, Jim McDermott, Dennis Kucinich, almost the entire Black Caucus, Rush Holt, Chris Van Holland, and a bunch of others including a lot of Republicans. This is not a partisan issue. This is an American citizenship issue.

I sign and fight with you.

But haven't there always been cases of this detention being done.

They've just made it legal.

Perhaps, our actions will make it less frequent.
