'I did this because I believe people have a right to know what governments and corporations are doing behind closed doors. I did what I believe is right.' - Jeremy Hammond
Stratfor emails published by WikiLeaks revealed that private security contractors with ties to the US Government were "specifically asked to connect" a campaign finance reform group that I helped found "to any Saudi or other fundamentalist Islamic movements."
The email was part of a number of submissions to the Court in the case Hedges v. Obama against indefinite detention of the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act.
Section 1021(b)(2) of the NDAA FY2012 allows for the indefinite detention without charges or trial of anyone, including American citizens, who are deemed by the US Government to be terrorists or terrorist sympathizers.
U.S. District Judge Katherine Forrest permanently enjoined Section 1021(b)(2) in September 2012. We await appeal decision on 2nd circuit.
Jeremy Hammond's act is part of the success of Hedges v. Obama.
