Response to patrice (Reply #6)

11. I am referring to this.

 

"the fact that I support this bill as a whole does not mean I agree with everything in it. In particular, I have signed this bill despite having serious reservations with certain provisions that regulate the detention, interrogation, and prosecution of suspected terrorists."


He was referring to the fact that a suspected terrorist by definition in the bill it self can be an american citizen. And because of this bill an american citizen can be held and detained indefinitely, without trial, although that is actually unconstitutional.

A judge then put a ban on the administration from using this on any american citizen, and the Obama administration immediatly appealed it, and got it overturned by another judge. This is what i was referring to.

But I do appreciate all of your interest on my post, I didn't mean to offend you, this was one of the few things the Obama Administration has done that really goes against what I believe.
