I’ve been conflicted about the NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act) for 2012, as you can read here and here. On the one hand, it authorizes all the spending for the Defense Department of the United States, and its interests abroad. Bullets and bibles, helicopters and housing, missiles and MREs. It doesn’t get passed, in theory at least, the military doesn’t get paid. A critical item. In other words, ripe for corruption by “sticking things in there” that wouldn’t stand on their own, ordinarily.
Stuck in the NDAA was some stuff about “Indefinite Detention” that became the center of a firestorm that’s a lot like Obamacare: the more you find out and uncover, the less you like.
