National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 - Section 1031 AUTHORITY OF THE ARMED FORCES OF THE UNITED STATES TO DETAIN COVERED PERSONS PURSUANT- Bill Moving Forward in Congress, Are We About to Witness the Most Profound And Ultimate Reversal in the History of the American Right to Be Inoccent Until Proven Guilty in a Court Of Common/Judicial/Maritime Law?


""The fiscal 2012 authorization bill would allow $662 billion in spending for operations in Iraq and Afghanistan and a host of other defense programs and acquisitions, along with national security activities at the Energy Department.

The legislation had included several contested components, including language on handling of combat detainees and sanctions on non-U.S. entities that conduct business with Iran's central bank. The Obama administration had argued that instituting such punitive measures as a means of curbing Iran's nuclear program could damage the global economy and required cooperation with Washington's partner governments.
A conference committee was formed to address differences in the House and Senate versions of the bill, with the Democratic and Republican heads of each chamber's Armed Services Committee meeting behind closed doors last week.

It was not immediately clear how the negotiators had dealt with differing language related to the U.S. nuclear force.

The House version could limit the administration's capacity to reduce deployed or nondeployed nuclear weapons below levels set by the U.S.-Russian New START nuclear arms control pact, unless required by another treaty or authorized by Congress.

The agreement, which entered into force in February, caps each side's fielded strategic nuclear warheads to 1,550, down from a ceiling of 2,200 dictated by an earlier treaty. The agreement also limits deployed strategic nuclear delivery systems at 700, with an additional 100 platforms permitted in reserve.""

But here's what the Media Moguls are not talking about, Concealed to be hidden from Public Eye:

Subtitle D--Detainee Matters

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 coincidence that this section in particular is hidden from the main index???

"""(b) Applicability to United States Citizens and Lawful Resident Aliens-
(1) UNITED STATES CITIZENS- The requirement to detain a person in military custody under this section does not extend to citizens of the United States.
(2) LAWFUL RESIDENT ALIENS- The requirement to detain a person in military custody under this section does not extend to a lawful resident alien of the United States on the basis of conduct taking place within the United States, except to the extent permitted by the Constitution of the United States."

there's the key word: requirement, meaning they don't have to detain american citizens, but can under their discretion.""


  
""As soon as December 13, the President will sign NDAA Section 1031 into law, permitting citizen imprisonment without evidence or trial. The bill that passed Congress absolutely DOES NOT exempt citizens. The text of Section 1031 reads, "A covered person under this section" includes "any person who has committed a belligerent act". We only have to be ACCUSED, because we don't get a trial.

- Confusingly, Obama threatened a veto for 1032, but NOT 1031. 1032 is UNRELATED to imprisoning citizens without a trial. He has never suggested using a veto to stop Section 1031 citizen imprisonment -- in fact, it was requested by the Obama administration. Watch the video for proof.

- The Feinstein Amendment 1031(e) is dangerously misleading. Don't be fooled: In the text of 1031(e), "Nothing in this section shall be construed...", the only word that matters is "construed" because the Supreme Court are the only ones with the power to construe the law. The Feinstein Amendment 1031(e) permits citizens to be imprisoned without evidence or a trial forever, if the Supreme Court does not EXPLICITLY repeal 1031.

- Any time you hear the words, "requirement for military custody" this refers to 1032 NOT 1031. We MUST not confuse these two sections. In its statements, the Obama administration has actually contributed to the confusion about 1032's "requirement for military custody", which is COMPLETEY UNRELATED to Section 1031 citizen imprisonment without trial. These tricky, misleading words appear even in major news stories. Don't fall for it!

If we act urgently to tell our friends, family, and colleagues, we may still be able to prevent this. Here is what we can do:

1) Americans must know about this to stop it. Urgently pass this petition as widely as possible: http://www.change.org/petitions/stop-ndaa-section-1031-citizen-imprisonment-l

2) Spread this C-SPAN video evidence. People deserve to watch this before he signs it.

3) Write and call your Representative and Senator telling them to stop NDAA Section 1031 and the dangerously misleading Feinstein Amendment 1031(e).
Contact your Representative: http://writerep.house.gov/writerep/
Contact your Senator: http://www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfm

4) Write and call the White House to tell the President you won't sit by and watch NDAA Section 1031 and the dangerously misleading Feinstein Amendment 1031(e) become law:"" http://www.whitehouse.gov/contact/submit-questions-and-comments
