A lone appeals judge bowed down to the Obama administration this week and reauthorized the White House's ability to indefinitely detain American citizens without charge or due process. A group of journalists and activists sued the government over the powers granted to them under the National Defense Authorization Act, or NDAA, but despite a federal judge's ruling banning that particular provision, the White House continues to fight to get it back on the books. Carl Mayer, a counsel representing the plaintiffs in the case against President Obama, joins us for more.
