Detention Act will imprison Americans abroad

If you’re upset that congressional approval of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 can send you away to military prisons and be tortured in America, don’t worry — it could be worse.

The US could send you somewhere else.

No, really. They could. And they can. Anywhere else, too. Really.

While the bill that left Capitol Hill last week and awaits authorization from US President Barack Obama allows for the United States to indefinitely detain and torture American citizens suspected of aiding enemy forces, one provision in the bill specifies that that detention doesn’t necessarily have to occur domestically — nor does it have to be in a foreign prison run by the US.

The ongoing detention of foreign terror suspects at the US base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba has been a hot topic since the War on Terror began, with American military authorities torturing could-be criminals without ever bringing them to trial. An exposé years earlier on the Abu Ghraib facility in Iraq revealed how American troops were subjecting detainees to disgusting, inhumane conditions; conditions which left some dead without ever going to trial. While Abu Ghraib has since been shut down, Guantanamo Bay continues to hold suspected criminals despite a promise to Obama to shut it down.

When the commander-in-chief inks his name to NDAA FY2012, Americans can be on their way to the same torture cells that have kept al-Qaeda and Taliban-linked terrorists for the last decade. It’s now been revealed, however, that US citizens and anyone suspected of a crime against America can be sent all over the world.

Under the legislation, the president has the power to transfer suspected terrorists “to the custody or control of the person’s country of origin, any other foreign country, or any other foreign entity.”

China? Sure. Iran? Why not! North Korea? That’s a possibility too. David Glazier, a professor at Loyola Law School in Los Angeles, tells Mother Jones that this was an authority that the president has had before, but only under the new NDAA is the legislation endorsed and insured that it could be applied to Americans.

“If the president could lawfully transfer a German prisoner of war to a foreign country, then in theory he could do the same thing with an American prisoner of war,” Glazier says.

Under the Feinstein Amendment imposed under NDAA FY2012, the Democratic senator from California proposed a law which would not change “existing law” with regards to detaining Americans. As Mother Jones notes, however, the jury is still out on what exactly “existing law” is when it comes to the topic, with those suspected of hostilities against America already being imprisoned without trial — citizen and otherwise. Both US-born Bradley Manning has been under military watch, isolation and torture for nearly two years, and the same has applied to a countless number of suspected terrorists at Gitmo and Abu Ghraib.

Al Franken, a Democrat senator from Minnesota, wrote in an op-ed last week that the provisions put in NDAA such as Feinstein Amendment were enough for some lawmakers to sign onto the legislation, but he said the final draft was still “simply unacceptable.”

“These provisions are inconsistent with the liberties and freedoms that are at the core of the system our Founders established. And while I did in fact vote for an earlier version of the legislation, I did so with the hope that the final version would be significantly improved. That didn’t happen, and so I could not support the final bill,” wrote Franken.

    The current US administration and their international lackeys have become a new Axis-of-Evil, the new Nazis.

    They offer only death, destruction, exploitation, poverty and theft of resources.

    The only hope for the world is for China or Russia to stop them before the impending US Dark Age engulfs us all.

      You’re wrong about the Nazis bro. Nazis were NOT evils. Your brain is washed so deeply, I wonder what the hell are you doing here? If you want compare NUBama and his clonies to someone, try the stalin horde. Interestingly enough you didn’t even mention them. Your commies have murdered more than 200 millions since 1917, including 3 million German POWs AFTER the war.

    Amazing! But this was prophesied to happen to the ENDTIME House of Israel (Forget the nation of Israel) in the book of Ezekiel 2600 years ago, after the fall of the original old testament nation of Israel.

    Ezekiel prophesied that Endtime Israel would eventually be taken captive and led away to a FOREIGN LAND. Also that 1/3 would die by famine, 1/3 by the sword and 1/3 led away as slaves because of their NATIONAL SINS. This would be done as punishment!

    Here is an except from a booklet “America and Britain in Prophecy”. This was originally written just after WWII when America was becoming super wealthy and powerful, but the author KNEW it was only a matter of time before this came to pass.
    “Our material possessions are already being systematically stripped away, now at a faster rate than before. Of course, most have been schooled and conditioned to the idea that it is material wealth and prosperity that bring happiness and true success in life. How utterly false is this hollow thinking, which ignores the truth that real happiness flows from obedience to God’s holy, righteous Law (Rom. 7:12; Psa. 119:172). But men do not consider the great law of cause and effect, and deny that misery, heartache, emptiness, depression, mental ills and almost constant unhappiness have anything to do with right and wrong.

    How mistaken they are!

    Because our peoples will not repent at the first sevenfold increase in punishment (drought, famine and disease), God promised a horrible new second element would enter His equation to correct His people—SLAVERY: “And if you will not be reformed by Me by these things, but will walk contrary unto Me; Then will I also walk contrary unto you, and will punish you yet seven times [RSV: sevenfold] for your sins. And I will bring a sword upon you, that shall avenge the quarrel of My covenant: and when you are gathered together within your cities, I will send the pestilence among you; and you shall be delivered into the hand of the enemy” (Lev. 26:23-25).

    There is no misunderstanding what “delivered into the hand of the enemy” means. The second increase in punishment is captivity, national slavery. Once again, God has done it before—and He intends to do it again! Can you grasp this? Does it seem too much to believe—that our people could actually be taken as SLAVE to a FOREIGN LAND? But it is the only punishment that has ever awakened Israel from her stubborn, rebellious disobedience—and God says it will happen!

    But this is not all. A third sevenfold multiplication of punishment, this time of different plagues follows: “And if you will not for all this hearken unto Me, but walk contrary unto Me: then I will walk contrary unto you also in fury; and I, even I, will chastise you seven times [RSV: sevenfold] for your sins” (vs. 27-28).

    The prophecy continues: “and I will scatter you among the heathen, and will draw out a sword after you: and your land shall be desolate, and your cities waste” (vs. 33). The Revised Standard Version says, “And I will lay your cities waste … And I will scatter you among the nations” (vs. 31-33). This third successive sevenfold punishment clearly involves special plagues, the devastation of cities through nuclear war and, now, complete slavery for all who survive, as they are transported for servitude “among the nations.”

    Also, when God speaks of punishing “in fury,” it is a reference to the Day of God’s Wrath, most commonly called the Day of the Lord. This specifically refers to the seven last plagues of Revelation 15:1, which are poured out on all nations of the world, because God will punish every person and every nation who disregards His laws.”

      This is not God’s will, plan or punishment for mankind.
      It’s corporation-owned US’ greed for wealth and power, plain and simple.
      Delude yourself that the US is intrinsically good and wholesome and that it’s actually god’s doing, if you like.
      It won’t help you avoid the totalitarianism your government is unleashing on its own people.
      A good rifle and plenty of ammo will be of more use to you than a bible.

        You’re basically right in what you say. But while the plan IS being orchestrated by those who worship and follow Satan, who are greedy beyond belief and super wealthy, it IS being allowed to occur and even being pushed by God Himself because of the peoples sins. God has said that because people hate the truth and love the lie, He will send them STRONG delusion that they should believe the lie. He is allowing this to occur for the righteous reason of waking everyone up. But it will take wave after wave of this to finally get people to realize that it’s their sins that are causing all of their pain and misery.

        The US is not good now, but it certainly was good for the first 150 years or so of it’s existence, sure as “good” as any nation on earth had ever been, though still imperfect. But now it’s run by this “Synagogue of Satan/Sith Lords/Bankers” who worship and love the dark side and evil and who are actively working to bring about a Satanic kingdom of god on earth.
