Nobody’s innocent, and with today’s government, you’re guilty if it (The President and his cronies [whoever they may be]) says you’re guilty. Indefinite detention* of American citizens without due process or court trial is real, and it is expected to pass the Senate with flying colors. We only just discovered this piece of legislation because the discussion for it was done in private, which is straight-up, 100%, illegal.
Oh, and the only problem our president had with the bill is he doesn’t have total control because he must report to Congress…that nuisance…when it comes to these detentions. Congress was supposed to be a check on executive power. The idea is theoretically impeccable, but when Senators and Representatives are too lazy to do their homework rather than checking their Facebook statuses, they don’t care how much power they hand off to the president, so long as it means they do less work.
