Indefinite Military Detention Measure Passes On Bill Of Rights Day

"WASHINGTON -- The Senate passed a defense bill Thursday that authorizes indefinite detentions of American terrorism suspects, coincidentally acting on the controversial measure on the 220th anniversary of the ratification of the Bill of Rights.

The bill, the National Defense Authorization Act, passed 86 to 13 and is expected to be signed quickly by President Obama, who withdrew a veto threat against the bill Wednesday. Six Democrats, six Republicans and one independent opposed the bill.

Though the legislation passed overwhelmingly, several senators argued that it was threatening fundamental provisions of the Bill of Rights, which is celebrated every Dec. 15."

flashback - The US unilaterally imposed a deadline on Iraq to accede to demands in 1991. When the Iraqis couldn't Operation Desert Storm started and the merciless bombing campaign began. The "arbitrary" deadline date? Martin Luther King's birthday.
