The Myths of Freedom

Glenn Greenwald @ Salon  busts 3 myths that are used to defend the 2012 NDAA, National Defense Authorization Act.

Gov apologists and/or operatives have begun spinning counterintell stories to lessen the blow back from the passage of these heinous laws. The myths being spun are,
  1. This bill does not codify indefinite detention of Americans.
  2. This bill does not expand the scope of the War on Terror.
  3. U.S. citizens are exempted from this bill.
Progressive ideas  ... like indefinite detention for enemies of the Administration

Mr. Greenwald breaks these down, chapter and verse, here.
