Indefinite civilian detention by the military

A federal judge in New York has issued a temporary injunction blocking portions of the National Defense Security Act which appear to allow the military to indefinitely detain U.S. citizens.

Last month, the Virginia General Assembly passed a law that would prohibit state agencies and employees from participating in military acts to detain civilians under the federal NDAA.

Just curious. Does Congressman Allen West (R-FL) still contend there's nothing in the NDAA to worry about?

Why would a federal judge issue an injunction against something West says doesn't exist?
