Neither Presidents nor Directors; they cannot keep their offices forever.

Obama and Kerry gave aid and support to the terrorists by arming them with guns and ammo and they have admitted sending the weapons to Syria. Syrian rebels are known to be in collusion with al Qaeda with an estimate of 50% of the rebel soldiers being al Qaeda. They should be indefinitely detained while America investigates. After they did this, Obama signed a law permitting this aid to terrorists. Obama has entertained the Muslim Brotherhood hundreds of times in the White House but now has the courts backing to keep the White House guest list classified so that Americans cannot see it.

[quote name='Brigitte Meier' time='04.09.2013 03:42']There are many foreign activists who pursue important goals - if they are considered in the way of the US government they can be detained under military law - indefinitely... The way this law is written it is one more of these backdoors to impose American law on the world.

Unfort unately, they are NOT imposing American law on the rest of the world; American Law does not allow these actions. They are imposing American LAWLESSNESS on the world, and it will be our down fall.

Doesn't that mean that if Obama bombs Syria he is aiding the enemy? After all it only helps Al Nursra and Qaeda?

You cannot detain americans indefinitely without lawyer, trial and charge. Our constitution does not allow it. Any attempt to use this law would violate peoples constitutional rights, and be the equivelant of a gestapo formed agency. Its quite scary the Supreme court wouldnt proactively try to dissolve that law that is clearly against due process/habeas corpus.

  


You're absolutely right but that doesn't seem to matter in this day and age. There is no right to "due process" any longer. That was, at least in part, the whole point in passing the NDAA.

by this logic, the military should detain obama, congress, and his entire cabinet for conspiring with al-queda to defeat bashaar al-asaad.

The first test of any judicial decision is based first if it violates constitutional rights. Indefinite detention isn't constitutional. If they throw out the constitution they throw out the system that allows them to legislate so that's a slippery slope.

No mystery how this decision will go.

SCOTUS is a fascist hub, and BushBama is a fascist tyrant leading the most corrupt DoJ in the history of the US.

Togethe r, they make an irresistible argument that the Constitution should be scrapped as being too protective of the freedom of the people of America.

A lawsuit should be filed against the Supreme Court and anybody who rules against the constitution.
