Constitution Accidentally Upheld

Judge Katherine B. Forrest has blocked implementation of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) which allows American citizens to be arrested on American soil and locked up forever without charge.  Rather despicably, the Obama Justice Department continues to support this un-American police-state legislation.  Mark Greenwald offered a more in-depth discussion following her initial, preliminary injunction last month.  It was bad enough that Obama broke his promise to veto this godawful bill, his pinky-promise not to abuse it notwithstanding; continuing to push for the kind of power that normally only roils in the fevered dreams of Dick Cheney is really beyond the pale.  Why, exactly, did we vote for this guy again?
