White House drops veto threat on defense bill
By the CNN Wire Staff
Wed December 14, 2011


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.

A statement by White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said the changes mean that President Obama's advisers will not recommend a veto. The measure is expected to come up for votes in the House and Senate this week.

At issue was the president's authority in deciding whether people detained in terrorism investigations would be held in military or civilian custody.

Sen. John McCain of Arizona, the top Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, said the legislation includes a "national security waiver" that allows the president to transfer a suspect from military to civilian custody if he chooses.

This doesn't come from CNN's "religion blogs". Phew!

Just like Ron Paul has a few positions that are right for all the wrong reasons, the veto threat has now been shown to have emanated from the same spirit.

One thing I'll say for Ron Paul, though: At least the mofo is consistent.......
