I'm not taking sides, honestly just trying to figger out what's the dilly.
If the government was perfect, then sure, this law would be great. But since the government is an organization which is in the unique position to monitor itself, and that politicians and bureaucrats are as self-interested as us, then we start getting into this odd situation.
It would be best to constrain the power of government because it lacks sufficient self-accountability for detaining individuals who are deemed to have an alleged link with terrorists. The government already illegally discarded and legally has eroded many civil liberties, and now it's intent on denying others due process?
When some think that this is a good idea, then we really have to start questioning the government and more importantly our capacity to become desensitized to the loss of our civil liberties.
