Originally posted by Inactive User"My administration will not authorize the indefinite military detention without trial of American citizens," Obama said in the signing statement. "Indeed, I believe that doing so would break with our most important traditions and values as a nation."
What is the NDAA Martial Law?
The NDAA is the National Defense Authorization Act. It was passed by Congress and signed into law by President Obama in December 2011.
Some are concerned that the law abolishes the Posse Comitatus Act, allows troops to raid US cities and homes and could lead to permanent martial law.
Supposedly, it abolishes habeas corpus, the law that guarantees citizens protection against illegal arrest, imprisonment and the right to a speedy trial.
