Senator Lindsay Graham, a supporter of NDAA, explained that it "basically say[s] in law for the first time that the homeland is part of the battlefield" and anyone can be detained, "American citizen or not."

Any American who doesn't respond when called upon, or any national not protected by his/r government, might be called an enemy combattant. But international Human Rights (as well as our Constitution) must reighn.

“Since the bill puts military detention authority on steroids and makes it permanent, American citizens and others are at greater risk of being locked away by the military without charge or trial if this bill becomes law.”
