"On May 2, 2012, the House Armed Services Committee (HASC) released a cute little “Myth and Fact” report on the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). For the average layman, this report would have left them with the impression that there was “nothing to see here.” It used tactics like not quoting the entire text, employing red herrings to distract from the issue, and contained doublespeak that would have made George Orwell proud. We issued a response shortly after, but that report, with its “mythbuster” style, inspired us to put together one of our own…this time with facts, links, and sources missing from the original HASC report and many others released afterward.
So, here is the first volume in PANDA’s Legislative Defense series. This particular volume is our first foray into challenging, debunking, and correcting the various myths thrown out by those with good, and evil, intentions regarding the 2012 NDAA. In this series, you will find some of the most popular, and most rare, myths you will face when educating others about the NDAA and the dangers it poses to our rights and the future of our country.
It would have been impossible without the help of the Patriot Coalition’s Jeff Lewis and Richard D. Fry, and Louis Flores, our PANDA intern, to produce an authoritative piece of work. This work will stand not only the strongest Constitutional scrutiny, but any attacks leveled at it, and I cannot thank these gentlemen enough.
This series is designed to help America stand against the NDAA and restore this country to Constitutional Governance. I hope you find it useful in your fight, to combat the lies, and give you the full confidence to stand on truth and the Constitution as we bring our government back to its founding principles." .
