Very well made video by Storm Clouds Gathering. In history there are events which stand as milestones marking points of no return. Usually, however such moments are only visible in hind sight.
The video covers historical events as well as the state of our government and country now. Just recently, Obama signed off on NDAA FY2012. The section in question is Section 1031 (starts on page 418):
SEC. 1031. AFFIRMATION OF AUTHORITY OF THE ARMED FORCES OF THE UNITED STATES TO DETAIN COVERED PERSONS PURSUANT TO THE AUTHORIZATION FOR USE OF MILITARY FORCE.
(a) IN GENERAL.—Congress affirms that the authority of the President to use all necessary and appropriate force pursuant to the Authorization for Use of Military Force (Public Law 107–40) includes the authority for the Armed Forces of the United States to detain covered persons (as defined in subsection (b)) pending disposition under the law of war.
(b) COVERED PERSONS.—A covered person under this section is any person as follows:
(1) A person who planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, or harbored those responsible for those attacks.
(2) A person who was a part of or substantially supported al-Qaeda, the Taliban, or associated forces that are engaged in hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners, including any person who has committed a belligerent act or has directly supported such hostilities in aid of such enemy forces.
(c) DISPOSITION UNDER LAW OF WAR.—The disposition of a person under the law of war as described in subsection (a) may include the following:
(1) Detention under the law of war without trial until the end of the hostilities authorized by the Authorization for Use of Military Force.
Now, I know what many are thinking… “I’m not part of the al-Qaeda, Taliban, or any of the specifically outlined groups above, so why do I have to worry about this?” Those were my first thoughts. However…. think about this….
This section gives the the military the authority to take you away, and they can claim you have these affiliations even your closest affiliation is nothing more than watching it on the news… and you will NOT have a chance to defend yourself in trial. You’ll never be able to prove you do not have any ties. And this will be until you die because the hostilities will never end. The US government, with cooperation from NATO and who knows who else, is making sure of this. The government does not tell us everything, nor do they always tell us the truth. They think it is in our best interest to “keep us dumb.”
Even my little chat with a man I ran into while traveling from the Department of Defense confirms this. No, I do not normally go believing everything I hear from a stranger. But why would he say this is true if it isn’t???
No, I’m not paranoid. Just keeping it real, folks.
