Huzzah for Feinstein, Lee and Paul

Any blow that can be struck against the Police State is fine by me:

The U.S. Senate voted on Amendment No. 3018 to the National Defense Authorization Act sponsored by Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and Mike Lee (R-Utah), and co-sponsored by Sen. Rand Paul, which protects the rights prescribed to Americans in the Sixth Amendment of the Constitution with regard to indefinite detention and the right to a trial by jury.

The amendment passed, 67-29.

If Rand Paul is crazy, I much prefer it to the sanity of the dangerous tyrants who decided the Executive should be able to indefinitely detain citizens on his secret, unilateral word alone.
