In a stunning move that had civil libertarians stuttering with disbelief, the U.S. Senate passed S.1867, the 'National Defense Authorization Act', which effectively ended the Bill of Rights and Constitutional rights in America. The National Defense Authorization Act is being called the most traitorous act ever witnessed in the Senate. This bill, passed late in the night on December 6, in a 93-7 vote, declares the entire United States to be a "battleground" in a 'never ending war' against terror. U.S. military forces can now carry out operations within the United States against American citizens, thus overriding the Posse Comitatus Act. The U.S. military can now arrest, detain, interrogate and execute U.S. citizens.
