National Defense Authorization Act: The End of America?

Wake up America!  You should all know by now about the The Feinstein Amendment 1031(e) .  At this point, the House and Senate have both passed their versions of the bill (H.R.1540 andS.1867), but they have disagreement on several provisions, including a provision opposed by the Obama Administration that would require the military to indefinitely detain terrorism suspects, including American citizens living in the U.S., without charge or trial. Contrary to popular perception, the Obama Administration is not strongly opposed to the provisions in the bills that would authorize indefinite military detentions for U.S. citizens. Here’s what the Administration had to say...

Faith Leaders Among Those Banned From 9/11 10 Year Anniversary Memorial Ceremony

9/11 Survivors Not Allowed At Ground Zero 10th Anniversary Memorial

New York is hosting a 10 year memorial commemoration of the September 11, 2001 disaster but the survivors won’t be allowed to attend. Apparently space is limited and only the families of those that lost their lives on that day are on the guest list. This will be the first year the ceremony will be held at the new 9/11 Memorial. I understand space limitations but something really doesn’t sound right about not having room for the people who actually made it out alive. They endured a horrific event and lost friends and coworkers that day as well. Instead of...
