    Post Obama Signs Defense Authorization Bill

    BREAKING: Obama Signs Defense Authorization Bill | ThinkProgress
    President Obama signed on Saturday the defense authorization bill, formally ending weeks of heated debate in Congress and intense lobbying by the administration to strip controversial provisions requiring the transfer of some terror suspects to military custody.

    “I have signed this bill despite having serious reservations with certain provisions that regulate the detention, interrogation, and prosecution of suspected terrorists,” Obama said in a statement accompanying his signature.

    The AP has more from the signing statement: “My administration will not authorize the indefinite military detention without trial of American citizens. Indeed, I believe that doing so would break with our most important traditions and values as a nation.”
    What do you think?? "My administration" points to that it might be done after he is voted out. Maybe the power will NEVER be used. Right??
    They say technology slows down for no one. I know it outruns my wallet. I figure its because my wallet isn't light enough yet.
