The Obama Administration OK's holding American citizens indefinitely as "suspected terrorists" The Leftist MSM will be up in arms about this in 3...2....1... ok, you can stop laughing now.
Oh, and this little nugget just makes me all warm and fuzzy inside.
"The bill now gives the President the immediate power to issue a waiver of the military custody requirement, instead of the Defense Secretary, and gives the President discretion in implementing these new provisions."
Yeah, let's give the President even more power! Awesome idea! No wonder Obama supports it. He's a power hungry Marxist who loves FDR, and lord knows FDR would've been a huge supporter of such a provision.
Consider this in the context of just who are "suspected terrorists" according to the Obama Administration
"There are laws on the books now that characterise who might be a terrorist: someone missing fingers on their hands is a suspect according to the department of justice. Someone who has guns, someone who has ammunition that is weatherproofed, someone who has more than seven days of food in their house can be considered a potential terrorist"
Have an accident while working the deli counter as a teenager? You might be a terrorist. Own guns and a bunch of ammo in ammo cans? Terrorist! Have a box of MRE's in your kitchen closet like my roommate and I? Terrorist!
Imagine the uproar on the left over this if we had a President McCain or President Palin right now. This is why you don't give the President these powers in the first place folks!
