Goodbye, Liberty. So Long, Habeas Corpus. Catch Ya Later, Constitution, Howdy, Indefinite Detention. And hello, good old Brave New America, home of those who have forgotten what it means — and what it takes — to be truly free. The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012, S. 1867, passed the Senate on December 1. This is the bill that includes language calling the U.S. a military battlefield and pretty much suspends habeas corpus for, well, all of us. Hear about it on the news? No? Imagine that. (Really, when was the last time you heard any truly important news on the news?) See how your senators voted.
