For those falsely claiming the bill the President is about to sign doesn't codify indefinite detention - even though the ACLU, HRW and virtually everyone else has said it does, because it so obviously does:

This is what Section 1021(c) of the bill says (


"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 hostilities authorized by the Authorization to Use Military Force."

(emphasis added)

Is there any way within the English language that this could be made clearer to you? DETENTION WITHOUT TRIAL UNTIL THE END OF HOSTILITIES.
