A Victory for Freedom: Judge Permablocks Indefinite Detention Provision of NDAA

The Congress passed, and the president signed into law, a provision that would allow the military to detain anyone in the world indefinitely. America!


A federal judge on Wednesday permanently blocked the U.S. military from enforcing a law allowing it to indefinitely detain anyone accused of aiding or participating in terrorism.

In May, U.S. District Judge Katherine Forrest issued a preliminary injunctionbarring the government from enforcing one paragraph of the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act, or NDAA, a 565-page military appropriations bill that sailed through Congress late last year.
