Prolife Conspiracy Theorists: Obama approved NDAA so he could lock up Prolifers as terrorists
Although Section 1022 states, ‘The requirement to detain a person in military custody under this section does not extend to citizens of the United States,’ many contend the law allows detention as an option for Americans captured abroad. Glenn Greenwald of Salon summarized, ‘For foreign nationals accused of being members of Al Qaeda, military detention is mandatory; for U.S. citizens, it is optional.’
Dana Cody, president and executive director of Life Legal Defense Foundation, said pro-life activists ‘already are classified as domestic terrorists on some FBI lists.’ She said that on one occasion the manager of a Kansas City, Kansas, abortion clinic slammed her client, Mary Ann Sause, to the ground and told the peaceful pro-life demonstrator he was photographing her license plate so he could report her to the FBI.
Cody, who told lifesitenews.com her organization is currently studying the NDAA, added that the law states ‘enemy territory is anywhere.’ The Senate rejected an amendment from Dianne Feinstein limiting permanent detention to those captured ‘abroad.’
‘If it’s within the discretion of the government under the National Defense Authorization Act, of course it will be used by the government to intimidate and silence pro-life people, especially those who are in the public forum,’ Cody said.
