    "A lone appeals judge bowed down to the Obama administration late Monday and reauthorized the White House’s ability to indefinitely detain American citizens without charge or due process".

    Up until now only those in America directly suspected of 9/11 terrorism could be detained indefinitely without charge.

    The band has been widened to include anyone suspected of terrorist activities.

    Your Facebook content, text messages, browsing records, who you hang out with, your religious background, stuff you order on line etc could now put you behind bars indefinitely if the US authorities suspected you were involved in "terrorism". any activity that would be opposed to or critical to Obama's regime .

    Nothing particularly new there, the US has a history of internment.

    They didn't think twice about locking up and relocating 110,000+ Japanese-Americans without any charges during WWII. 62% of them were US citizens. Some didn't even have any recent links to Japan.

    Nothing new here. Obama was a sneaky "brave new big brother surveillance society for the people's own good" enthousiast all along.

    I trust using Russia Today as your news source is you being ironic.

    Im curious as to what you think happened to Germans in Britain during WW2, or what happens in any country to expatriats when total war is declared by their home country?

    The USA has the highest incarceration rate of any country in the world, one in every hundred of Americans is currently locked up in prison.. Many inmates are are doing life for three strikes petty crimes, working in privatised "legalised" slave labor camps.

    I guess that this figure will dramatically increase now that the caption can be broadened to include subversives.

    Many of them weren't ex-pats. They were just ethnically Japanese.
    The nasty thing about it was their home country WAS the USA in a lot of cases.

    The UK have been trying to introduce the same thing. Currently they can hold you for 28 days without being charged but that's only on the say so of a judge.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,501 ✭✭✭BrokenArrows


    I have some friends who are British but of Asian decent and they were held for 9 hours over night in their car at a ferry port in the UK and were not told why or for how long. Just that there were being detained.

    Yes, and many other people who's loyalties were suspect.

    If your point is that civil liberties are suspended in times of total war then it is hardly something that only happens in the States, it is almost impicit in the term that everything changes.
