A Writ of Habeas Corpus has been filed with the Alaska Supreme Court seeking an injunction against the National Defense Authorization Act which was rammed through Congress in less than a week and signed by President Obama yesterday, December 8, 2011. Mark Begich and Lisa Murkowski are named as Respondents.
This unusual step was taken by Anna von Reitz, of Big Lake, Alaska.
"The dangers inherent in this Act are so great, so overwhelmingly damaging to individual liberty, and so very much in contradiction with the Bill of Rights and all three versions of the Constitution (for and of) the United States of America----that I felt such action was necessary," said von Reitz, commenting from her home on Friday.
What began as a request from the Obama Administration to the Senate Armed Services Committee quickly ballooned in a bill, S. 1867, which was passed by the US Senate on December 1. With lightning speed, it also passed the House of Representatives, and was signed into law by President Obama on December 8, the same day von Reitz made public record of her action.
Among other things, the National Defense Authorization Act claims that the government has the right to arrest any American citizen on "suspicion" and to detain them indefinitely without being charged, without access to counsel or the courts, and even if they come to trial and are found "not guilty" by a jury.
