TAKE ACTION — Senate Moves To Allow Military To Intern Americans Without Trial


ACTION ALERT
.– Senate Moves To Allow Military To Intern Americans Without Trial
The senate is currently debating S. 1867, the National Defense Authorization Act bill the House already passed HR 1540.  There is NO text available for reading … the Senate has again pushed this through and is rushing to get it signed without review of the citizens.

http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d112:s.1867:

The ONLY chance we have is the UDALL Amendment to this law.  Sen. Mark Udall (D-Colo.) is offering the Udall Amendment that will delete the harmful provisions and replace them with a requirement for an orderly Congressional review of detention power. The Udall Amendment will make sure that the bill matches up with American values.

The solution is the Udall Amendment; a way for the Senate to say no to indefinite detention without charge or trial anywhere in the world where any president decides to use the military. Instead of simply going along with a bill that was drafted in secret and is being jammed through the Senate, the Udall Amendment deletes the provisions and sets up an orderly review of detention power. It tries to take the politics out and put American values back in.

Now is the time to stop this bad idea. Please urge your senators to vote YES on the Udall Amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act.
