Feinstein's amendment to the 2013 NDAA

The Feinstein amendment to the 2013 NDAA, as written and passed, expressly codifies the authority of the Congress to authorize indefinite detainment without charge or trial.  No more dithering, no more obfuscating, it's now going to be expressly written into the law - they can nab you and put you in a hole and forget about you.  Just like last time, the Congress shows they don't care about you, your life or your liberty, they're just squabbling over who gets to wear the boot that stamps on your face forever. (Orwell, 1984)
An authorization to use military force, a declaration of war, or any similar authority shall not authorize the detention without charge or trial of a citizen or lawful permanent resident of the United States apprehended in the United States, unless an Act of Congress expressly authorizes such detention.
