Rand Paul Aims to Kill “Indefinite Detention” of US Citizens in Extreme Rendition violation of the Constitution

 by Campaign for Liberty – Tennessee

EXTREME RENDITION: Senate Bill seeks to extend U.S. citizens a violation of the Constitution.

Senator Rand Paul has submitted an Amendment to Senate Bill 1867 (known as the National Defense Authorization Act) which would strike the section of the bill that allows the US government to indefinitely detain individuals without trial or due process. The Amendment is #1062 and would eliminate Section 1031 which says:

   “Congress affirms that the authority of the President to use all necessary and appropriate force…includes the authority for the Armed Forces of the United States to detain covered persons…Detention under the law of war without trial

This Amendment was submitted by Senator Paul as soon as the bill came forward. There are other similar Amendments too, however none of them completely eliminate the offending section. You can view Senator Paul’s submission of the Amendment here:
