Michel Chossudovsky, director of the Center for Research on Globalization says Obama's signing of National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) amounts to “militarization of America” and “demise of civilian politics.”
“It's the militarization of America. It's the demise of civilian politics. Civilian politics prevails but essentially it is dominated by procedures which are unconstitutional … It's very much related to the social crises in America. It is intended to curb the protest movement. It states that so-called suspected terrorists can be arrested indefinitely without trial,” Chossudovsky told Press TV's U.S. Desk in an interview on Monday.
He says the so-called suspected terrorists include anti-war and civil rights groups.
“And in fact when I started investigating this tendency towards a police state several years back, in 2004, Homeland Security had categorized the so-called suspected terrorists, they call them conspirators, and they included the following categories: Foreign terrorists, domestic radical groups which signified anti-war and civil rights groups and disgruntled employees,” Chossudovsky added.
