  •  I have never heard that NDAA provides for (0+ / 0-)

    killing Americans on US soil.  rather, it pretty much just restates the AUMF, and in any event neither could authorize killing a US person on US person (see ex parte Milligan).  Nor have I heard about any signing statement re killing US citizens, and I'm pretty sure that none exists.

    •  Commenter appears to be thinking of the provision (0+ / 0-)

      relating to detention.  I believe that Obama noted in a signing statement that he would not subject a US person captured on US soil to military detention.
