While Americans still have the right to file a petition for habeas corpus, federal judges will customarily defer to the Pentagon and the CIA on their determination that a person poses a threat to “national security.” https://davidstockmanscontracorner.com/?p=347819&preview_id=347819&preview_nonce=65f8995b3b&preview=true
