Here's Video of Allen West Endorsing Indefinite Detention

It's terrible quality, but I don't get to play with fancy video-grabbing software. I'm working on a higher-quality version, but until then, this will have to do. See my story posted late Thursday night for an explanation of what's going on, but, in summary, this is Allen West speaking out in opposition to an amendment that would ban anyone arrested in the United States from being held indefinitely by United States armed forces on terrorism charges.

He mentions Nazis, a conspiracy theory involving CAIR, and the fact that he thinks anyone accused of terrorism  -- including American citizens -- doesn't deserve constitutional rights.
