Update 3: Obama lies, insisted that detention of Americans be in defense bill 

Senator Carl Levin:

“But… It was his administration that insisted that the language be included in the bill”.


The U.S. Senate approved the final bill today by a vote of 86-13 and it goes to President Barack Obama for his signature. The House approved the measure yesterday by a vote of 283-136.

The National Defense Authorization Act and its controversial provisions regarding detention of terror suspects passed the House of Representatives Wednesday night, 283-136.

The measure split Democrats right down the middle, with 93 voting in favor and 93 against legislation that President Barack Obama tactily endorsed earlier in the day by retreating from a veto threat. Though the bill passed handily just before 7:00 PM, there was a surprising amount of opposition from Tea Party faithful and other conservative GOP members, 43 of whom opposed the legislation. A full roll call is posted. Source:

    So this is how liberty dies… thunderous applause. American citizens will now be able to be held at GITMO without trial or charges. Obama thought this was wrong when done to people caught on the battlefield, but feels it is okay for American citizens, what else needs to be said.
