White House Says No Veto Of Defense Bill

By DONNA CASSATA
Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The White House says senior officials will not recommend that President Barack Obama veto the defense bill awaiting passage in Congress.

A White House statement says changes by congressional negotiators would not challenge or restrict the president's ability to collect intelligence or incapacitate terrorists.

The White House had threatened a veto over provisions requiring military custody of suspected terrorists linked to al-Qaida.

This is just getting weird. I am not typically one that sees the doom and gloom stacking up all around us but this, the drones, the economy here and abroad, the fema camps, Japan, the methane leaks, underground bunkers, etc. This is just getting worse and worse everyday. I turn to the people I work alongside and they have no idea of any of this.

Maybe its time for me to admit to craziness

You know what's even more ``doomish``?

FEMA camps activation is set for February 2012... S1867 is set to take effect (even if it's passed this week) about 60 days after it's passed.

That means the FEMA camps activate at the SAME TIME S1867 becomes real. Coincidence? There's never a coincidence in politics and certainly not in tyranny.

The defense bill talks about military funding for Iraq. Just a little confused, aren't we almost already out of Iraq. Since the deadline is 2012? I wonder if they are using it as a cover for this new covert war with Iran and possibly Syria. I know we still have something like 17,000 contractors (mercenaries) that will stay in Iraq past the deadline.

I want to see the Obama-fans try to defend THIS nightmare!

My own state rep voted for this (rotten Tea Party liar) and got an ear full from me.

Sickening!

Can anyone pinpoint where this bill defines a terrorist? I have gone through a fair amount of this bill, and I am trying to show some family members that it mentions a criteria for this, but I can't find it. You know, comments like having 7 days worth of foodstuffs, waterproof ammo, etc. qualifies you as a terrorist or someone they can detain indefinitely. Any help would be appreciated, and I'll continue my reading. Thanks!

Because as Rand Paul said in the senate, yeah the Iraq war ``is done``... but guess what, they have left in the budget that US security ``commitment to Iraq is open ended``... and that re-invasion of Iraq is possible under this bill without a new declaration of war (like Obama gives a flying duck about that).

US Hands Over ‘Camp Victory’ to Iraqi Govt

Despite the symbolism of the return of the base to Iraqi control, questions continue to swirl around the US occupation of Iraq and whether the end of the month is really the end or simply a pause before the next invasion.

This speculation is fueled primarily by the fact that the authorization to invade Iraq, which Congress based in 2002, is still on the books. Sen. Rand Paul (R – KY) attempted to put together a bipartisan coalition to revoke the authorization, a formal end to the conflict, and it failed miserable, with a 30-67 vote. The opposition to the bill was led by Sen. Joe Lieberman (I – CT), who complained that the bill would have “forced” the president to return to Congress to seek permission in the event he wanted to reinvade and reoccupy Iraq at some future date. Since the bill was not revoked, it seems that the president can simply choose to reinvade at any time.

I really was an Obama fan. Even through all the birther debates and backed him pointing at how the right stonewalls anything good from happening. NO MORE. The last year of his presidency has been a smack in the face to everyone I know who backed him. I cant tell the difference in these guys anymore. It is all the same crap every term. The Obama presidency is why have lost all faith in American politics. The whole thing is one big joke at the expense of everyone who doesnt have millions of dollars.
