Permanent injunction on Obama’s attempt to suspend habeas corpus


A welcome victory for Chris Hedges. On 12th September Judge Katherine B. Forrest ruled that the temporary injunction she had placed in May 2012  on clause §1021 (b)(2)of  Obama’s infamous National Defence Authorisation Act (NDAA), which he had pushed through Congress in December 2011, a clause which in effect suspended habeas corpus in the USA, is to become a permanent injunction. The US administration had appealed against the temporary injunction during the summer. Its appeal has now been lost.
