Indefinite detention

More great news on the NDAA lawsuit: Federal Judge Kathryn Forrest just rejected the Obama administration's request that she reverse her ruling against indefinite detention.
In May Chris Hedges, Revolution Truth, et al won their lawsuit asserting that indefinite detention violates the Constitution. More than 50,000 Demand Progress members have signed on as supporters of the lawsuit.
Obama needs to decide if he'll take his crusade against the Constitution to a higher court. And the Senate is taking up indefinite detention as it debates this year's NDAA later this month.
Please click here to urge Obama and the Senate to stop supporting indefinite detention:
Obama signed last year's National Defense Authorization Act even though it included provisions which could let the military detain civilians indefinitely without a trial or charges.
Despite a valiant effort by opponents, the House retained indefinite detention when it passed the new NDAA last month. The Senate will take it up soon, and President Obama can drop his defense of it in court.
Please send emails to Obama and the Senate right away, by clicking here:
