Finally someone is talking sense about NDAA. The section below (e, found on page 428, within section 1031, which begins on page 426 of the pdf) specifically counters the entire problem. The press flipped out about his section allowing for the arrest and detention of any American for any reason, which was never true. This language assures that that is not true. Even people who are not citizens, but are arrested in the US, are exempt. Maybe now people can stop acting like Obama is some horrible traitor to Americans, and start focusing on how to beat the Republicans in less than a year.
President Obama (and a few key members of Congress) did not let us down and I am very happy to say this. I was very concerned with the language written in the NDAA. This is still not on the Senate website. Naturally - things can change, but it does appear as if the message landed over the course
