Well, I got some stuff from a friend of mine this morning regarding the government’s plans for civilian internment. Much of it is unsubstantiated, but this part did catch my eye.

Obviously, this could apply to a myriad of situations (such as Iraq right now, with civilians acting as terrorists). However, it could just as easily be used here. I especially noted the phrase “…because he committed an offense against the detaining power (insurgents, criminals, or other persons).”
Anyway, judge for yourself. Read the document here:
