  •  Actually the ACLU said nothing substantive (0+ / 0-)

    about the final bill that was signed. It was all rhetorical hand-waving because the NDAA doesn't actually grant anymore authority than what existing law already was (which I have said elsewhere, and which the ACLU has correct) grants way too much power to the executive branch. But that is the core issue of the 2001 AUMF, not the NDAA.

    cheers,

    Mitch Gore

    Want to end too big to fail banks? Then move your money and they will no longer be too big.
