Say goodbye to your civil liberties, folks.

The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) will be put into law this week in Washington, D.C.

This new law has had the most unique coverage of any political act in years. Some mainstream media outlets have "covered" it, when merely scratching the surface, while other networks have blatantly chosen to ignore it. Either way there are a lot of misconceptions about this bill, which was put together by Democratic Sen. Carl Levin and GOP Sen. John McCain.

Here is what this Act entails:

1) mandates that all accused Terrorists be indefinitely imprisoned by the military rather than in the civilian court system

2) permits (note it does not mandate) that U.S. citizens on American soil accused of Terrorism be held by the military rather than charged in the civilian court system

3) renews the 2001 Authorization to Use Military Force (AUMF) which allows force and military detention against those involved in the 9/11 attacks and countries that harbor them, as well as anyone who "substantially supports" Al Qaeda, the Taliban or "associated forces"

4) imposes new restrictions on the U.S. Government's ability to transfer detainees out of Guantanamo Bay
