IBNN NEWS Editorial Note: I’m shocked by the deafening silence on an issue such as this by Black America and it’s leadership. Some say the Republican Party of America wants to take us back to Jim Crowe? That would be rhetoric; President Obama’s signing of this act is reality. Obama not only signed a bill into law stating that American’s can be assassinated if they are deemed as terrorist but now we can be held without due process. Who determines who is a terrorist? Are political activists that disagree with the party in power terrorists? This type of legislation is a slippery slope. It is unfortunate that President Obama has weakened the hostility of Black Americans on all issues. We say nothing against any actions regardless. Similar to former President Clinton who locked up more Black folks than any one in modern history … but hey he was cool…Right?

Washington, DC (Source: ABC News/IBNN/Politics/January 2, 2012)…In his last official act of business in 2011, President Barack Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act from his vacation rental in Kailua, Hawaii. In a statement, the president said he did so with reservations about key provisions in the law — including a controversial component that would allow the military to indefinitely detain terror suspects, including American citizens arrested in the United States, without charge.
The legislation has drawn severe criticism from civil liberties groups, many Democrats, along with Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul, who called it “a slip into tyranny.” Recently two retired four-star Marine generals called on the president to veto the bill in a New York Times op-ed, deeming it “misguided and unnecessary.”
