This bill was signed by Obama on the new year's eve.

Basically you can now be held indefinitely without trial. I mean, I don't live in the USA but this is absurd. The land of the free has become the land of the "do what we tell you or be detained".

Since I don't live there I don't know how much this was talked about in the media but I'm guessing next to nothing.

How will anyone have the courage to go on stand against anything now in the US knowing that they can just without any evidence pull them up and send them anywhere in the world to a hold/prison indefinitely?

Also, were you aware that it was not actually supposed to be about US lawful citizens when it was introduced but Obama administration requested it include them. Even though he said those pretty words afterwards "‘I have the power to detain Americans… but I won’t"
