Allen West finally sets record straight about National Defense Authorization Act

You’d think this would end the speculation from the kooks (Ron Paul acolytes especially) who claim the 2011 NDAA authorizes the US Military to indefinitely detain US citizens.

Here Allen West reads directly from the bill, and challenges anyone in attendance to tell him where in the document the offending passages an be found.

Somehow the tin foil hat brigades will march onward, I’m sure.

  1. Okay, I confess. I did not read the bill. I should have read the bill. If there weren’t about 3,607,222 examples of bills being passed and Obama taking advantage of the fine print, or the fact that agendaites wrote the bills and not congressmen, or for example that Sarah Palin said Obamacare would create Death Panels and everybody mocked her and now we are finding out that drugs are being pulled “guidelines” are being issued and all the rest; If it weren’t for the fact that Janet Napolitano put out directives for law enforcement to look askance at Iraq war vets, or people with anti-government bumper stickers; if it weren’t for about 4,678,953 examples of the federal government usurping basic freedoms; if it weren’t for the fact that Obama said he wanted a Civilian National Security Force; if it weren’t for the fact that just yesterday we learned that “DHS officers”, replete with automatic weapons, had set up an “ID” checkpoint in a Florida Social Securty office (Did Col. West have a comment on that little operation?). Then perhaps people wouldn’t have gotten so skittish when “claims” were made about what the bill could lead to. This concern didn’t just happen in a vacuum or without extenuating circumstances.
    Oppose the circumstance that the popular conception is – that American citizens can be detained on American soil without trial- with the very real supreme court ruling that people who are not American citizens, and who are captured on foreign soil, have US constitutional rights – and there appear to be a basis for wondering who’s looking out for who.
    At any rate, thanks for bringing Col. West’s explanation to the fore, Erick

    • You’re still right to be concerned about the fine print, Bob. Especially the fine print written in invisible ink. This is not just your ordinary regime, when it comes to jerry-rigging the law.
