by

Despite his public support, Sen. Russ Feingold (D-WI) has written President Obama a letter opposing the idea of indefinite detention. He also cites Obama's "good faith desire" to enact "a statutory basis," which pretty much sounds like trying to make something illegal seem legal.  

"Any system that permits the government to
indefinitely detain individuals without charge or without a meaningful
opportunity to have accusations against them adjudicated by an
impartial arbiter violates basic American values and is likely
unconstitutional."
