Bill of Rights,1791-2011, R.I.P.? Actions Against Military Dictatorship USA. War Is A Crime .org

Well, 220 years is a pretty good run, eh? Just in time for Thursday’s Bill of Rights Day, Congress has included in a massive war and weapons funding bill an authorization of presidents and the military to imprison you or anyone else forever without a trial.

Step One: Call your representative and your two senators and demand that they vote No on final passage of the “Defense Authorization Act.”  202-224-3121

Get the staffer you speak with to tell you why their boss would even consider voting yes on imprisonment with no trial.  Post what they tell you at http://warisacrime.org/nomohabeas

Step Two: Tell the president to veto

The conference committee made changes to the bill to answer President Obama’s concerns, not ours.  The bill now leaves the president free to imprison or kill individuals without handing them over even to a military tribunal. The White House calls this “flexibility.” The authors of the Bill of Rights called it tyranny.
