House Passes NSA 'Reforming' Act Yet Reaffirms Indefinite Detention of Americans


5/22/14 - The House of Representatives passed the [virtually meaningless] modified version of USA Freedom Act.  They also rejected an amendment and therefore REAFFIRMED Indefinite Detention of
American citizens... @#$%^&*s!   

Will our so-called 'representatives' ever represent American citizens?!

House passes NSA 'reforming' USA Freedom Act

Published on May 22, 2014
In a move to reform the National
Security Agency's surveillance practices, the House of Representatives
passed the USA Freedom Act Thursday morning, with 303 representatives
voting in favor and 121 against. The passage of the bill was not
received well by many critics seeking stricter reforms. Representatives
who originally supported the legislation even pulled their support and
voted against it, considering it to be a "watered-down" version that
does not offer real reform. Shahid Buttar, executive director of the
Bills of Rights Defense Committee, discusses the contents of the final
bill with RT's Ameera David.

Congress reaffirms indefinite detention of Americans under NDAA

The US House of Representatives approved an annual defense spending bill
early Thursday after rejecting a proposed amendment that would have
prevented the United States government from indefinitely detaining
American citizens:

 "The great fear that I have regarding the outcome for America of these disclosures is that nothing will change." Edward Snowden
