Obama and the NDAA

It was amazing news: Chris Hedges, Revolution Truth, et al won their lawsuit last week as a judge ruled that indefinite detention violates the Constitution.

More than 50,000 Demand Progress members have signed on as supporters of the lawsuit.

Now indefinite detention is back in President Obama's hands: He can tell the government's lawyers not to appeal the ruling and put an end to this travesty once and for all.

Meanwhile, the Senate takes up indefinite detention THIS WEEK.

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 week.

The Senate will take it up soon, and President Obama can drop his defense of it in court.

Let's keep fighting.
