Flabbergasted by the passage of National Defense Authorization Act, S. 1867 – otherwise known as the McCain-Levin Military Detentions Law for Americans, for once, I’m standing whole-heartedly with the ACLU (Never thought I’d see the say!) in opposition to this travesty.
Fortunately, the Founders of the republic foresaw that corrupt and vicious men might attempt to change the Constitution they had written on their own, without a Constitutional Convention. They therefore commanded that all officers of the United States understand that their primary duty was to defend, even unto the death, not the president, not any of the institutions that they had established, not even the territory or the people of the United States. Because the Oath was given such an elevated place, to be not sworn or signed at some point in the commencement of duties, but sworn in public before the eyes of all before any other official action, it was to be understood that defense of the Constitution, against all enemies both foreign and domestic, comes first, and would require the dropping of all other business in the hour of mortal danger.
The Oath of Office of both US senators and military officers creates the class of criminal “domestic enemies” of the “United States Constitution.”
This makes the second time, selected Congressional members have met behind closed doors to accomplish something so blatantly against the will of the people they had to do it in “secret!”
