Washington (CNN) - The White House lifted a veto threat against a giant $662 billion defense authorization bill on Wednesday after legislators made changes in language involving detainees.
In particular, the legislators added language to make clear that nothing in the bill requiring military custody of al Qaeda suspects would interfere with the ability of civilian law enforcement to carry out terrorism investigations and interrogations in the United States.
You can interpret it any way you wish, but it is a compromise and that's what America expects. At least they are trying to do something...and that's a big change.
Where was the gop when Rumsfeld Says 2.3 Trillion Missing From Pentagon on 9/10/01?
That's right – stand strong and you will not get it all wrong!!!
Oh ok, so american citizens can still be detained for reasons ,that anyone of us would fall under, and sent to prisons/concentration camps for life without a trial or any hope of one....great. Good thing I got my passport.
