ACLU: National Defense Authorization Act permits ‘worldwide war without end’ Including the U.S.

by Mr. Charrington on May 20, 2011

A little noticed provision in the House Armed Services Committee’s National Defense Authorization Act would authorize the United States to use military force anywhere there are terrorism suspects, including within the U.S. itself, according to the American Civil Liberties Union.

Section 1034 was added to the bill [PDF] by the committee’s chairman, Rep. Buck McKeon (R-CA).

“Congress may soon vote on a new declaration of worldwide war without end, and without clear enemies,” the ACLU warned in a statement. “A ‘sleeper provision’ deep inside defense bills pending before Congress could become the single biggest hand-over of unchecked war authority from Congress to the executive branch in modern American history.”

The only opposition to the provision has come from Rep. John Garamendi (D-CA), who offered an amendment to strike Section 1034 while the House Armed Services Committee was reviewing the bill. The committee passed the National Defense Authorization Act by a 60 to 1 vote — without the proposed amendment — with Garamendi as the sole dissenter.

Garamendi said he plans to introduce the amendment again on the House floor, where debate on the bill will begin the week of May 23.

“President Obama has not sought new war authority,” the ACLU said. “In fact, his administration has made clear that it believes it already has all of the authority that it needs to fight terrorism.”

“But Congress is considering monumental new legislation that would grant the president – and all presidents after him – sweeping new power to make war almost anywhere and everywhere.”

Garamendi said the National Defense Authorization Act also extends the war in Afghanistan, delays the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, and furthers billions of dollars in wasteful Pentagon spending.

As you copy this formula down to other rows in your dataset, the portion that refers to $C$1 will
continue to point at $C$1, as shown in Fig. You can ask Excel to
calculate the larger of either the calculation in F or a zero.
Being able to use the right reference will allow you
to create a single formula that can be copied everywhere.

looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement.

(But that doesn’t mean you should eagerly
call off your stack 10% at a time with hands like 73o or 52o, only that it’s mathmatically correct.
This is a strategy guide for the mobile game Uni – War.
Looking at the data, we can easily see that
our hands, and the dealer’s hands, will likely be one pair or nothing at all.
It means even if the player does not have good strong
hands than the opponent, one can bluff and confuse the opponent and win the jackpot.
