Reality Check: Did the US Senate just give away your right to due process?

(FOX19) - Ignoring a Presidential veto threat, the Democratic-controlled Senate overwhelmingly approved a massive, $662 billion defense bill that would require the military to hold suspected terrorists linked to al-Qaeda or its affiliates.

But this bill would also allow the President to detain even U.S. citizens without trial.

President Obama has said he will veto it, but will he?

And if he doesn't what does this new power mean?

Ben has the Reality Check you won't see anywhere else.
