8. And Dianne Feinstein is trying a free-standing bill titled

the Due Process Guarantee Act of 2011 , to eliminate the Presidentís ability to indefinitely detain American citizens. It says:

(1) An authorization to use military force, a declaration of war, or any similar authority shall not authorize the detention without charge or trial of a citizen or lawful permanent resident of the United States apprehended in the United States, unless an Act of Congress expressly authorizes such detention.

(2) Paragraph (1) applies to an authorization to use military force, a declaration of war, or any similar authority enacted before, on, or after the date of the enactment of the Due Process Guarantee Act of 2011.

Why does she find it necessarily to put out a bill like this if the part allowing detainment of citizens was removed? I think she and Bernie know a little more than the people saying it was removed and it's no big deal.
