Submission + - US Senate Declares War On Citizens (newsvoice.se) 4

iONiUM writes: "In a stunning move, the US senate passed a bill that effectively ends the Bill of Rights in America. From the article, "This bill, passed late last night in a 93-7 vote, declares the entire USA to be a ”battleground” upon which U.S. military forces can operate with impunity, overriding Posse Comitatus and granting the military the unchecked power to arrest, detain, interrogate and even assassinate U.S. citizens with impunity."
Wired magazine is also reporting this story, with similar disgust: "Here’s the best thing that can be said about the new detention powers the Senate has tucked into next year’s defense bill: They don’t force the military to detain American citizens indefinitely without a trial. They just let the military do that."
Good luck Americans. You're gonna need it."
