Like I said he tried to play it out to be he was against it and would veto it, how about you deal with the bill SPONSOR who is a DEMOCRAT who said it
was added because OBAMA specifically wanted it. Thanks.
ETA: your source is Bias if it says 97% voted for it. I believe it was 50-50 for Democrats and like 80-20 for Republicans. However it was all
political manouvering. The Democrats are directly responsible for the inclusion of indefinite detention of US citizens as ADMITTED by Democrats
themselves. They then made it appear they would vote against it all the while ensuring enough of them voted yes to make sure it passed. Obama
threatened to veto it and then did not.
You sir, were played, and didnt even know it. Obama directly asked for this.
sponsor Senator Carl Levin (Democrat, Michigan) went to the floor and disclosed that it was the White House and insisted that there be no
exception for citizens in the indefinite detention provision.
