Chris Hedges: Update On Anti-NDAA Lawsuit Vs. Obama

'It's frightening how hard Obama is fighting us.'

Outstanding interview.  Chris Hedges outside the hearing for the second circuit court of appeals in the Hedges v Obama NDAA lawsuit.  NDAA gives Obama the power to indefinitely detain any American any time for virtually any reason.

This is what happened:

#STOPNDAA

Our attorneys asked the Supreme Court to consider lifting the “stay” on our injunction against Section 1021 and indefinite detention. As you’ll recall, we won our lawsuit last September and were granted a worldwide injunction against this provision – ensuring people could not be indefinitely detained under the sweeping and unchecked scope of the NDAA.

Despite having issued a signing statement in January of 2012 claiming he would not use these powers against American citizens, Obama immediately appealed Judge Forrest’s ruling and our win, then went further and asked her to grant a stay on the injunction, essentially “lifting” that injunction.  She refused.

Next, the DOJ attorneys went to the second circuit court and asked them to lift the stay as well, claiming “irreparable harm” would be incurred by the US if the government did not have these unchecked powers. The second circuit court judges granted their request and put a stay on our injunction.

We applied to both Justice Ginsberg (who said no) and Justice Scalia (who said yes) to convene a conference of the entire Supreme Court to consider lifting that stay and restoring our injunction. They told us yesterday that they will not lift the stay – indefinite detention under the NDAA stands.

Hedges has iron balls and gives more lucid information in a few short minutes than anyone at the AP, CNN FOX NPR or MSNBC. Just unfucking believable that we have come this far and all I get from people when I talk about this is the look. Christamighty.

PANDA (People Against the NDAA) is the largest organization in the United States combating indefinite detention without charge or trial. We were founded on January 29th, 2012 to combat one of the most dangerous laws ever passed.

What kind of president would sign a law like NDAA, let alone on New Years eve?
A very questionable one that, instead of celebrating, was signing this insidious document and saying under his breath..."Happy New Year America".......

Please stop posting the same video from a long time ago and calling it an "update" as if it were new. I'm looking for a REAL update to this issue which is something that freedom as an American is hinging on and it's very annoying that you are trying to mislead people with a very old clip.
