NDAA Authorizes Internet Shutdown

The highly controversial NDAA bill (which has passed Congress and is on its way to the President’s desk) not only authorizes the unconstitutional detainment of American citizens, but allegedly also allows the takeover of the Internet. Here’s the passage and link:

“Congress affirms that the Department of Defense has the capability, and upon direction by the President may conduct offensive operations in cyberspace to defend our Nation, Allies and interests, subject to (1) the policy principles and legal regimes that the Department follows for kinetic capabilities, including the law of armed conflict; and (2) the War Powers Resolution.”
