Resisting the NDAA's Terrible Indefinite Detention Provisions


By War Criminals Watch - Posted on 16 February 2013

Videoby Debra Sweet               I really encourage you to view Raymond Lotta's presentation and the interesting discussion from this past Sunday's webcast. Lotta went into the history of political opponents of governments targeted in 1930's Germany, and in the U.S. in the 50's, 60's and 70's, as well as what he called the "disturbing turn" in the lawsuit against the NDAA, Hedges v. Obama.  Audience questions drew on the content of a poem by Pastor Martin Niemoeller, who put great effort into saving his own Lutheran Church, and later was self-critical of that chocie, saying it meant the expense of millions of lives. Lotta described the essence of the lesson Niemoeller drew of not allowing the repressive government to determine who is "the other;" not allowing targeted gorups to act as if it's OK if the government targets "them."
