    Just in time for the 2012 election cycle. Since Janet Napolitano (Obamas Director of Homeland Security has repeatedly stated that "conservatives and gun owners are potential terrorists" the following news report ought to concern everyone of us as it is now about to become reality. Under the new law, you can be detained without charge, without trial, without right to counsel (a lawyer) and sent to Gitmo (or perhaps a "detention camp" soon to be built?)

    "Indefinite Detention’ Bill Heads To Obama’s Desk As White House Drops Veto Threat"

    "Establishment media and neo-cons still pretend NDAA doesn’t apply to American citizens"

    "UPDATE: Obama has dropped his threat to veto the bill and is now expected to sign it into law. Remember – it was Obama’s White House that demanded the law apply to U.S. citizens in the first place.

    The bill which would codify into law the indefinite detention without trial of American citizens is about to be passed and sent to Obama’s desk to be signed into law, even as some news outlets still erroneously report that the legislation does not apply to U.S. citizens.

    “The House on Wednesday afternoon approved the rule for the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), setting up an hour of debate and a vote in the House later this afternoon,” reports the Hill.

    Mainstream news outlets like The Hill, as well as neo-con blogs like Red State, are still pretending the indefinite detention provision doesn’t apply to American citizens, even though three of the bill’s primary sponsors, Senator Carl Levin, Senator John McCain, and Senator Lindsey Graham, said it does during speeches on the Senate floor.

    “It is not unfair to make an American citizen account for the fact that they decided to help Al Qaeda to kill us all and hold them as long as it takes to find intelligence about what may be coming next,” remarked Graham. “And when they say, ‘I want my lawyer,’ you tell them, ‘Shut up. You don’t get a lawyer.’”

    As Levin said last week, it was the White House itself that demanded Section 1031 apply to American citizens."

    Welcome to the new gulags

    The so-called "home grown terrorists" are becoming a serious concern. Ron

    While citizens are exempt, all they have to do to get around that speed bump is to declare them terrorists. End of problem.
