Senator Mark Udall, after Senate defeated his amendments to National Defense Authorization Act, which were suppose to guard US Citizens from the capture and indefensible detention by Military, throws whole his support to the similar effort of Senator Dianne Feinstein: Stop Detaining Americans Indefinitely!
But, isn’t it too little, too late? Military Commissions Act have been in place for 5 years, allowing to kidnap any non-US citizen from any place in the World, and keep him in “custody” indefinitely without access to legal procedures, or execute him silently. And nobody gave a darn about this “legal innovation”.
And now, with the Military Commissions Act becoming a part of National Defense Authorization Act, this extension of the practice to everybody just looks logical and well-earned.
