Obama Signs National Defense Authorization Act Instantly After House Vote
To no one’s surprise, President Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) last night immediately after the House of Representatives passed it on a vote of 283-136. This deplorable act of treason only serves to cement the fact that Obama is a serial liar who has no respect for the basic rights of American citizens.
Adam Serwer over at MotherJones explains it clearly,
The administration had said that the military detention provisions of an earlier version of the NDAA were “inconsistent with the fundamental American principle that our military does not patrol our streets.”
The revised NDAA is still inconsistent with that fundamental American principle. But the administration has decided that fundamental American principles aren’t actually worth vetoing the bill over.
