Federal Court Backs Obama Over NDAA Indefinite Detention

The authority was challenged last year by a group of outspoken journalists, who were concerned the administration could used the law broadly to detain anyone who became a thorn in their side, hiding behind the word terrorism to justify their actions.

The group were successful at first instance, but yesterday the Federal Court sided with President Obama allowing the administration the immense power to indefinitely detain those it views as being an enemy to the US at their own free will.
