Dianne Feinstein, on the defense appropriations legislation that includes authorization for the U.S. government to arrest and detain without charge or trial any American citizens whom the government decides is allied with Al Qaeda or any other terrorist group:

“Congress is essentially authorising the indefinite imprisonment of American citizens, without charge. … We are not a nation that locks up its citizens without charge.”

We are now.
