In blow to Obama, ban on detainee-transfer funds part of spending bill
Congress on Wednesday signaled it won't close the prison at Guantanamo Bay or allow any of its suspected terrorist detainees to be transferred to the U.S., dealing what is likely the final blow to President Obama's campaign pledge to shutter the facility in Cuba.
The move to block the prison's closure was written into a massive year-end spending bill that passed the House on Wednesday evening on a vote of 212-206, part of a last-minute legislative rush by Democrats to push through their priorities before ceding the House to Republican control in January.

Yes, I can say "lame duck President"
Obama has proven a huge disappointment in regards to his campaign promises. Apparently he is following the Bush neocons in policy and style of lies and deception.
Shouldn't this make the conservatives happy?
