PBC News & Comment, Wednesday December 14

Confusing, conflicting reports on the language in the Defense funding bill that enables detention of Americans without charge or trial.  We urge you to demand an Obama veto until the bill can be fixed.We start with the NDAA and its unconstitutional provisions, some of which seem to conflict with each other.  We play a clip from Keith Olbermann’s Countdown show from 12/13, with guest Raha Wala of Human Rights First.  Call the White House:  202-456-1212.
