I agree that the NDAA is a dangerous tool in the hands of any politician and in the hands of military told to do their bidding. I believe that Speaker "Blubbering-Crybaby" Boehner lied to the Republican Congressmen telling them that the NDAA meant something different than the actual words say. They were each given cards last Spring to carry which explained the "official" story rather than what the words actually say and mean! These cards have been seen in use at public events where sitting Congressmen are asked about NDAA and they pull out the cards to remind themselves what the official explanation is.
