Romney Sidesteps Questions on Locking Up Citizens

That’s the story in today’s Washington Times.

Here’s an excerpt:

Mitt Romney sidestepped questions Wednesday about whether he would have signed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that authorizes the indefinite detention of terror suspects, including American citizens, saying he didn’t have enough information on the law.

Responding to a question at a town hall style meeting at a large manufacturer here, the Republican presidential nominee said he will take a look “at that particular piece of legislation” and said that when it comes to the issue of indefinite detention he would try to strike a balance between protecting personal liberties and protecting the nation from terrorist attacks.

“Detain” and “detention” are euphemisms for “jail” and “imprison.” Don’t fall for that.
