#AfghanistanTuesday - Top Tweets - Dec 13

Weekly tweeting about Afghanistan continues to go strong, even at the height of the U.S. holiday season. On December 13, a lot of people were focusing on the pending National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) - especially its provision for military detention of U.S. civilians.

(And remember: tweeting about the upcoming Guantanamo mobilization in January is now happening in a big way every Wednesday: see #closeGITMO!)

These are some of the #AfghanistanTuesday tweets from Tuesday, December 13, 2011, that were most highly retweeted:
