Martial Law 'National Defense Authorization Act bill' versus Udall Amendment
As the Senate readies to vote on an amendment that would enact Martial Law and human rights violations worse than the United States has seen to date as John McCain and Levin are supporting, an afront on the U.S. Constitution, ACLU said Monday in a written statement that senators need to hear from Americans now to urge Senators to vote instead for the Udall Amendment that Senator Mark Udall has written about in the Washington Post Monday.
"I have no doubt that my colleagues had the best of intentions when they wrote those provisions, but their proposal is deeply flawed," stated Mark Udall in his op-ed in the Washington Post Monday. "If the Senate passes this legislation in a vote expected this week, we risk harming our ability to combat terrorism and weakening our national security."
