I'm not sure about where the discussion lies here though this is certainly not game changing at all. As a matter of fact I never thought that this was an issue before, with a few exceptions; people who get life sentence usually deserve it (Especially murderers, 35 years is nothing for taking a human life, life sentence is the only justified punishment). Though that is not exactly my argument.

This seems like a small conflict resolution rather than a huge win, considering the issues of today are not related to this at all. Also while we are mentioning the bill of rights/constitution and such, I really think it should be noted that the documents are very old, and people think differently than today. Not only this but America is too busy putting their faces in them to see that today's problems are not all in those documents.
I think you misunderstood what is meant by indefinite detention. Basically, what was going on was that the NDAA for 2012 had authorized the federal government to detain US citizens without a trial for an indefinite amount of time. Or so I've read. Which, if true, is a violation of a citizen's constitutionally guaranteed rights, with it bypassing due process, among other things.

At least Congress has agreed on something benefiting US citizens.
