Will ACLU Take the NDAA Bull by the Horns, or Just Milk the Cow?

January 5, 2012

“He signed it. We’ll fight it.

President Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) into law. It contains a sweeping worldwide indefinite detention provision.

The dangerous new law can be used by this and future presidents to militarily detain people captured far from any battlefield. He signed it. Now, we have to fight it wherever we can and for as long as it takes.

Sign the ACLU’s pledge to fight worldwide indefinite detention for as long as it takes.”

I have not signed it … yet.  I suspect that once I do, I’ll start receiving an indefinite stream of donation requests, all assuring me the money will go to fight the indefinite detention provisions of NDAA.  I suspect that the ACLU may be gearing up to milk the NDAA issue for donations just as they have the USA Patriot Act, which a decade after passage and despite their efforts is still on the books:

I don’t mind the ACLU milking issues so long as they’re actually making a difference on those issues.  But I don’t see that their efforts made much of a difference with respect to the Patriot Act.  And when I asked them yesterday “What, specifically, is the ACLU going to do to defeat the indefinite detention provisions of NDAA 2012?” their answer was this:

“We are extremely active on this issue and are strategizing our best options in moving forward.”

I find that answer very disappointing.  The ACLU had more than enough time to “strategize” about NDAA before Obama signed it, and they should have been ready to spring into action once he did.  I have recommended an effective course of action for the ACLU, which includes charging Barack Hussein Obama and all of the U.S. Senators and Representatives who voted for NDAA 2012 with Seditious Conspiracy under U.S. Code Title 18 Part I Chapter 115 Section 2384:

Whether they follow that recommendation or not, whatever the ACLU intends to do about NDAA they better do quick.  And if they want my support, they better be doing a helluva lot more than just building donor lists from online petition drives that otherwise accomplish nothing:

DEMAND THE TRUTH!

"It was the poverty caused by the bad influence of the
 English Bankers on the Parliament which has caused in the colonies hatred of the English and...the Revolutionary War."
– Benjamin Franklin

"Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect every one who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined."

Patrick Henry
June 26, 1788
