13. you're 100% right. Obama knows there is a problem [with the NDAA] or he wouldn't have to clarify.

Similarly Feinstein knows there is a problem or she wouldn't have introduced that Due Process Guarantee Act.

Of course it may just be that the problem they actually perceive is that so many people in the progressive wing of the party will just not shut up and stop whining about it.

I think it's fair to say that most activists who associate with the democratic party have already made their minds up about NDAA. Some people see a serious civil liberties issue and others don't. Not too many people are going to be changing their minds on the subject. Nobody is convincing anybody.

Democrats who supported NDAA 2012 should expect primary challenges and/or just a less enthusiastic base. There's no way around that. The elected national Democrats have knowingly chosen to sacrifice a certain amount of support on the left, in exchange for ____? for what?
