NDAA plaintiffs fear U.S. citizens already in military detention – Salon.com

A group of journalists and activists took to content sharing site Reddit today to answer questions on their lawsuit against President Obama’s indefinite detention act. In his responses, one of the plaintiffs, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Chris Hedges, said he believed that there are already U.S. citizens held in military detention by the U.S. at home and abroad.

Chris Hedges and Daniel Ellsberg are among the six plaintiffs (others include Noam Chomsky and Naomi Wolf) who recently won a permanent block from a federal judge against the NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act) and its provision to allow the indefinite detention of U.S. citizens. The Obama administration’s attorneys immediately filed an appeal to overturn the judge’s decision.
