According to Huffington Post reporter Michael McAuliff, Senator Carl Levin (D-MI) said no changes need to be made to the National Defense Authorization Act when his committee takes up re-authorization this week. A federal judge decided last week that the law was unconstitutional because the indefinite detention portions of the law could be used to curtail the First Amendment rights of journalists, scholars, and activists. Levin dismissed the ruling and prefers appealing the decision to making changes to the law.
