If you still think you are free... explain this
From Russia Today, "A new bill quietly introduced by congress last week (S.3081 "Enemy Belligerent Interrogation, Detention and Prosecution Act") is causing quite a stir among civil liberties groups. The brainchild of senators John McCain and Joe Lieberman, the bill would give the United States government the power to indefinitely detain terror suspects without charge or trial. It would also allow the government to interrogate them for the intelligence value and it doesn't make a distinction between US citizens and non-citizens."
The bill "doesn't make a distinction between US citizens and non-citizens." It seems to me, if more "reports" are issued similar to the MIAC report, it isn't far fetched that you, me and anyone with similar beliefs could be "detained" (read arrested) for having never committed a crime or violated a law.
