The commentary on the overwhelming passage of the NDAA is coming in fast and furious, (not to be confused with the ATF operation by the same name). It appears people are beginning to understand why this travesty was crafted in secret, played down by the media, and put to a vote when the attention of the media was elsewhere. Many are already referring to this phenomenon as a “media blackout” which has kept this legislation out of the public view until now.
If someone can refer to a poll on this subject, please do so below, because it is doubtful that if Americans knew as much about the NDAA as they do Kim Kardasahian's wedding they would support it. My guess is that polling data will be scarce because if it was available, the results would prove why the Senate is doing this as covertly as possible. Here's more:
“This is happening right now - IN AMERICA! A law that is designed to specifically bypass Constitutional protections and one that will undoubtedly be used against the American people to further advance and expand the national police state.”
If the passage of this legislation wasn't deliberately "blacked out" there should be another explanation.
“The language of the bill is cumbersome and difficult to assess, thus creating some plausible deniability for those who support this piece of draconian legislation. Representative Justin Amash (D-MI) apparently agrees. According to Rep. Amash, the language of the bill is 'carefully crafted to mislead the public.'
“To those who assert that the ambiguity of the bill’s language has been fixed and addressed, he counters that 'it [still] does not preclude U.S. citizens from being detained indefinitely, without charge or trial, it simply makes such detention discretionary.'”

Where's the media attention?
“Call it what you will: a military junta, a secret invalidation of Americans' civil rights, a Congress gone mad. Whatever it is, it needs to be covered by the press, and quickly.”
The NDAA story will be updated as information becomes available. The importance of this legislation cannot be over-emphasized, especially among those who plan on keeping the Occupation Movement a viable political voice in the future.
