Amendment to Protect Americans from Indefinite Detention Passes

Activist Post

Last night, the U.S. Senate voted on Amendment No. 3018 to the National Defense Authorization Act sponsored by Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and Mike Lee (R-Utah), and co-sponsored by Sen. Rand Paul, which protects the rights prescribed to Americans in the Sixth Amendment of the Constitution with regard to indefinite detention and the right to a trial by jury.

The amendment passed, 67-29. However, many Senators, including McCain and Graham, voted for the amendment because they made the argument that the amendment authorizes indefinite detention.

Moments before the vote, Sen. Paul took to the Senate floor to again voice his support for the amendment and inspire his colleagues to do the same. Below is video and transcript of his floor speech.

If you read the actual language of the bill, there is a part that states all of the bill can be trumped by any previous legislation passed by congress. That previous legislation means NDAA, which means that this entire hoopla is a sideshow distraction. Since when is feinstein a civil libertarian? THINK, PEOPLE!!
