National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2012. What does it do, or not do? More importantly, does it constitute a declaration of war on the people?

Ever since Bill St. Clair mirrored this declaration of a State of War by Anonymous, I have been asked to comment upon it. Now, being rather experienced about chest-thumping “Declarations of War” in the 90s, I am a bit jaded by, and more than a bit suspicious of, the genre. Consequently I have been trying to find out what the NDAA actually says, as opposed to what folks say it says. It is important before you go to war to find out exactly what it is you are going to war about. I am not alone, it seems. Ranger Rick forwards this NDAA FAQ: A Guide for the Perplexed. I am still a bit perplexed after reading it through twice, but less perplexed than I was.
The cut-to-the-chase comment is here: “No federal statute can repeal the Bill of Rights. To the extent any provision of the NDAA is found to conflict with any provision of the Bill of Rights, it will not survive constitutional scrutiny.”
Yeah. And its application to American citizens on American soil won’t survive this guy, either. Him and a couple-three million of his friends.
