WH Following Through: National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA)

Lest most forget, those that are laying all blame on the administration, joined the supporters of the previous policies and allowed back into power more numbers to obstruct in the Senate and more then enough, even more extremists, to retake the House in the mid-term elections!

Many of which in both houses, I'm sure, were complicit with the previous administration that developed the countries policy issues related to after 9/11, the war on terrorism and the two wars of choice.

w Which most in the country also ran quickly from demanding any accountability as well as giving help to those fighting within, the new administration and congresses since, trying to rid the country of those failed policies, so look in the mirror, and that goes for any and all the issues, the country has wasted way too much time on the change needed and especially related to it's economic health!!

Following Through: Detention & Interrogation Consistent with our National Security, Our Laws, and Our Values
February 28, 2012 - When the President signed the most recent National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) in December, he issued a detailed statement making clear that “The fact that I support this bill as a whole does not mean I agree with everything in it.”


One section of particular concern in the bill was Section 1022, which would seek to require military custody for a narrow category of non-citizen detainees who are "captured in the course of hostilities authorized by the Authorization for Use of Military Force." Initially conceived of as a requirement for a group of suspected terrorists to be held in military detention, the Administration worked with Congress to obtain broader authority to interpret and implement the military custody requirement, and to waive its application in individual cases or categories of cases, to better preserve both our national security and our values. read more on this update>>>

The White House
Office of the Press Secretary
For Immediate Release
December 31, 2011
Statement by the President on H.R. 1540

Today I have signed into law H.R. 1540, the "National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012." I have signed the Act chiefly because it authorizes funding for the defense of the United States and its interests abroad, crucial services for service members and their families, and vital national security programs that must be renewed. In hundreds of separate sections totaling over 500 pages, the Act also contains critical Administration initiatives to control the spiraling health care costs of the Department of Defense (DoD), to develop counterterrorism initiatives abroad, to build the security capacity of key partners, to modernize the force, and to boost the efficiency and effectiveness of military operations worldwide. read more>>>
