Description
 
The detainee provisions passed as part of the Nat. Defense Authorization Act for FY2012, P.L. 112-81, affirm that the Authorization to Use Military Force (AUMF), P.L. 107-40, in response to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, authorizes the detention of persons captured in connection with hostilities. The Act provides for the first time a statutory definition of covered persons whose detention is authorized pursuant to the AUMF. During debate of the provision, significant attention focused on the applicability of this detention authority to U.S. citizens and other persons within the U.S. The Senate adopted an amendment to clarify that the provision was not intended to affect any existing law or authorities relating to the detention of U.S. citizens or lawful resident aliens, or any other persons captured or arrested in the U.S. This report analyzes the existing law and authority to detain U.S. persons, including American citizens and resident aliens, as well as other persons within the U.S. who are suspected of being members, agents, or associates of Al Qaeda or possibly other terrorist organizations as enemy combatants. This is a print on demand report.
