The U.S. Senate recently passed Senate Bill 1867 which imprisons accused terrorists, including American citizens, without a trial. George Jarkesy editorial discusses why passing this law takes away one of America's most fundamental rights, protected in the Constitution.

George Jarkesy, Chairman of the National Eagles and Angels Association, and noted investor and money manager, has written a vital article on the new Senate Defense Appropriations Bill, S.B. 1867. This bill contains provisions that allow for the indefinite detention of American citizens without trial.

Mr. Jarkesy stated that “this year’s bill, S.B. 1867, adds provisions that allow the indefinite imprisonment of all accused terrorists, even American citizens…the United States cannot hold the moral high ground in the promotion of democracy and liberty, when we cannot uphold the most basic rights of our own citizens.”

Mr. Jarkesy also assigns blame to the Obama administration’s response to the bill – “not a condemnation of overreach and the abrogation of American rights, but a condemnation of the constraints placed on the Presidency to detain American citizens without cause or trial.”
