(February 23, 2012) The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has turned up the heat on its opposition to the indefinite detention provisions of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012. It has joined the ranks of liberty organizations such as the Tenth Amendment Center and Oath Keepers in providing direction and model legislation for introduction at the local and state government level, which brings to light the provisions’ unconstitutionality. The article posted at its website yesterday provides the full details of the initiative.
The ACLU has created a “toolkit” for activists to utilize in the battle to force a repeal of the NDAA 2012 unconstitutional provisions. Quoting from the article:
Both Congress and the president need to clean up the mess they have created. No one should live in fear of this or any future president misusing the NDAA’s detention authority. The NDAA’s detention provisions must be repealed.
