Senate Kills Money to Close GITMO

I just read a headline, so I've got no details for you.But the Senate voted overwhelmingly to deny the administration the funds to close down Guantanamo Bay and relocate the terrorists to the US mainland. Is this delicious, or what? Of course a load is borne more easily with wider dispersion, so this may be the Senate's effort to allow Obama to duck criticism about failing to close the facility. I'm just sayin'

You're probably closer to the truth than away. This gives Obama the easy out and he still gets to maintain control over the situation.

You know Trish I would hope that I was wrong. That the Senate (at least the Dems who voted nay) didn't have a political calculation for retaining power in mind. But I guess it ever thus. And the Repubs do it too sad to say.
