Understanding the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA)
The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2012 was signed into lady by President Obama on December 31, 2011. This Act addresses national security programs, DOD health care costs, military modernization, economic sanctions against Iran, counter-terrorism, the strategic goals of NATO and many other US issues and capabilities. The language and content of this wide reaching bill are still being discussed by many constitutional experts who are concerned with the impact on the rights of American citizens, the serious ambiguity of the verbiage, and the expanded scope of the President’s authority.
We need to impress on our sitting congressmen and senators the need to revisit this bill and to support an amendment as soon as possible!
KrisAnne Hall, a constitutional lawyer and astute legislative analyst, has produced the attached video entitled: “NDAA — A True Legal Analysis”. This is an excellent, comprehensive analysis of this law. She addresses the evolution of the bill up to it’s passing as well as the troublesome wording that essentially waive the rights of Americans. Please take the few minutes required to watch this video. You will fully understand the problems with this law and will enable you to better question your congressmen and political candidates on their support of this legislation.

My suggestion is that all who read this send this link to their congressmen and senators and ask them to address the issues.
