McCain wants U.S. citizens imprisoned without trial
McCain introduced a bill that will allow the federal government to detain any U.S. citizen they consider a hostile ‘enemy belligerent’, held indefinitely and without trial

Last week, John McCain introduced a bill into the U.S. Senate which, if passed, would actually allow U.S. citizens to be arrested and detained indefinitely, all without Miranda rights or ever being charged with a crime.

The stated purpose of S. 3081 (The Enemy Belligerent Interrogation, Detention, and Prosecution Act) reads: “To provide for the interrogation and detention of enemy belligerents who commit hostile acts against the United States, to establish certain limitations on the prosecution of such belligerents for such acts, and for
other purposes.”

The bill has nine co-sponsors including Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) and Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA).

Section 5 of S. 3081 states:

    “An individual, including a citizen of the United
    States, determined to be an unprivileged enemy belligerent
    under section 3(c)(2) in a manner which satisfies Article
    5 of the Geneva Convention Relative to the Treatment of
    Prisoners of War may be detained without criminal
    charges and without trial for the duration of hostilities
    against the United States or its coalition partners in which
    the individual has engaged, or which the individual has
    purposely and materially supported, consistent with the
    law of war and any authorization for the use of military
    force provided by Congress pertaining to such hostilities.”

This bill, introduced by McCain, who despite overwhelming evidence, claims to be a “conservative,” would not only take away our right to a trial, but would also allow the federal government to arrest and imprison anyone the current administration deems hostile.

Of course, that would be the same administration whose Homeland Security Secretary has classified veterans, retired law enforcement, Ron Paul supporters, and conservatives as “terrorists.”

If it was not clear before, it should be now that John McCain has as little respect for the Constitution as he does for our borders.
