Today, Jeremy Hammond was sentenced to ten years in prison and three years of supervised release for hacking into the computers of the private intelligence firm Strategic Forecasting (Stratfor).
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.
