VICTORY: Emmett, Idaho Bans NDAA Detention, Laws of War

Activist Post

During debate on the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA)in the U.S. Senate, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), said “it designates the world as the battlefield, including the homeland.

The citizens of Emmett, Idaho disagree.

On Tuesday, the Emmett City Council approved the Restoring Constitutional Governance Resolution, thus banning the detention provisions of the 2012 NDAA, and the application of the laws of war, which originally made Emmett a “battlefield” in the war on terror. The resolution also encourages the state legislature to interpose against these detention provisions, and Idaho’s Congressional delegation to take steps to repeal them.
