Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

Appeals Court Affirms NDAA Indefinite Detentions, allowing the president to impose indefinite detention without trial

A Federal Appeals Court in New York has thrown out a previous ban on the enforcement of the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) statute allowing the president to impose indefinite detention without trial.

A 2012 lawsuit against the NDAA, brought by Chris Hedges, Daniel Ellsberg, Noam Chomsky and others, had sought to preemptively block the federal government from using the NDAA to detain them as dissidents, since the bill was extremely vague about who it could apply to and granted presidents seemingly enormous latitude on the matter.  - News from Antiwar.com

A federal appeals court in New York on Wednesday held that the government could enforce a statute dealing with the indefinite detention without trial of terrorism suspects, reversing a district judge’s decision last year to permanently block the law, part of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012.
The decision, a victory for the Obama administration, came the same day that the Justice Department persuaded another federal appeals court in Washington to block a district judge’s order last week that had barred the military from conducting groin searches of detainees in the prison at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba.
