There Goes the Bill of Rights?


I am amazed by the lack of media attention being paid to the recent signing of the National Defense Authorization Act by Pres. Obama. According to what I have so far read, this Act authorizes the indefinite detention, without trial, of American citizens suspected of terrorist activity. Am I wrong about this? If so, please set me straight right away, because it is giving me major heartburn. Why? Because this is how tyranny begins … They will come at night, bust down your door and you will never be seen again.  Am I over-reacting? Is this Act not totally unconstitutional? And why is there no discussion of this most alarming development?
