National Defense Authorization Act: Indefinite detention? Ho hum!

There's been a great deal of tongue-wagging about the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012, and how it, "authorizes the military to detain citizens indefinitely".

Shocking, isn't it? My response is, "Ho hum!"

In fact, the act does not a single thing, because the government already has this authority as section 412 of the Patriot Act. That Act caused a great deal of consternation even in Congress because it permitted indefinite detention of "enemy combatants", a category that apparently neglected to exclude U. S. Citizens.
