While we are at it, let's detain indefinitely every member of the US who voted for Obama, because, you know, since we don't really have to prove anything, giving money to his campaign and subsequently voting him into office is, by extension, supporting terrorism.

Your question is stupid, the burden of proof is what denotes a justice system, anything else is not a civilization under the rule of law. What you have is a military dictatorship, the voice of the people no longer matter.

If you can't prove that someone is directly funding someone or something else, than the possibility exists that he's not. You are relying on other people's word and circumstantial evidence.

What if one of these informants had a friend who ran a store that also sold cigarettes? What if he was just wanting to help a friend make more money? What if someone was fudging information in order to bolster their record, make it look like they are doing a better job, working for a promotion. He doesn't have to prove anything after all.

Your ability to just roll with this, and acting like it is some necessary piece of legislation to protect you from the mythical terrorist boogyman, while blindly ignoring it's disastrous abuse potential is pretty fuging hilarious actually.

I say we indefinitely detain every member of congress and every member of government, who, in anyway, voted for or supported the actions taken in Libya on behalf of the Al Qaeda "liberators". We funded, armed, and militarily supported a terrorist network known (at least according to our good ol'gubment) for attacking the US and it's allies on multiple occasions.

that's a big fat

BOOM BITCH!!!

Ask the people of Egypt how they like military rule, their little "liberation" worked awesome for them. Wait you mean the military doesn't want to give up power? Well darn.

it's actually a very good question - if this scenario actually happened (and its a very likely one, I can use American business funds going to the IRA in vast amounts as a demonstratable case, although there are many like it involving Muslim terrorist groups as well) how do you think we should be able to respond?

It "appears" that enough alterations were made to more clearly define what can and can't be done; anything else will be argued well by YOUR friends at the ACLU who will argue from the complete other end of the spectrum (why I support them). But I'm no expert -however this does not mean I am going to take yet another of these whacky websites at their word.

Who's linking wacky websites CWG? If you can prove that someone is funding a terrorist group, go for it, arrest them. Keyword: proof, if you can't, well then how do you really know that they are? Someone told you so? What if they are lying, what if they have their own motives? I mean seriously, how can you argue for individual indefinite detention without proof? What the fug is wrong with you people?

Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.
