    For those who don't watch TV at work, can you explain in words what happened?  The Feinstein-Lee Amendment passed back in December.

      The amendment passed the senate, but the house killed it, and it was not included as part of the NDAA.

       

      The Feinstein-Lee Amendment to the NDAA would have required congressional approval to imprison US citizens caught on US soil.

       

      Essentially, it still would have been illegal, but less so than having the president decide who he could imprison. Either way, due process would have been circumvented.
