NDAA Blocked by Federal Judge


Note from Wes: This is a great sign of the awakening of the people! I’d recommend following the link at the bottom and reading the whole story.

Citing the “chilling effect” the act has on free speech, a federal judge on Wednesday permanently blocked the military from enforcing the National Defense Authorization Act.

The NDAA allows the federal government to indefinitely detain anyone, including American citizens, accused of aiding or participating in terrorism.

The act sparked an avalanche of criticism from journalists and professors alike who claimed it hampered their professions and left them in fear of prosecution.

And on Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Katherine Forrest — who issued a preliminary injunction against the act in May — sided with NDAA opponents, saying the act was too vague and violates the due process clause of the Fifth Amendment, Courthouse News Service reported yesterday.
