  •  Welcome to Fascist USA (9+ / 0-)

    Historians have already noted that it really DID start with passage of NDAA. (There is a pretty nice record here on the Kos.) They usually don't weigh in until a decade or two passes, generally.

    Holder is just confirming that our "progressive" Administration is going to take the fascist view when it comes to Sections 1021 and 1022 of the NDAA.

    Now, even if the AUMF is rescinded (which it should have been years ago) we have codified almost all aspects of it in NDAA.

    So Holder and Obama continue building on the foundations laid out by John Choon Yoo for George W. Bush.

      •  When they declare no accountability, (0+ / 0-)

        Verify the existence do "secret laws", "righteous" kill lists, wage indefinite war against an ethereal target, promote infinite detention, admit to spying on everyone with the complicity of big business while shielding them from prosecution and say "so what are you gonna do about it?"

        Just saying...what point isn't it?
