Congress on Wednesday passed legislation that would effectively bar the transfer of Guantanamo detainees to the U.S. for trial, rejecting pleas from Obama administration officials who called the move unwise.
A defense authorization bill passed by the House and Senate included the language on the offshore prison, which President Barack Obama tried unsuccessfully to close in his first year in office.

Some good news. But Barry has said he wants to work on the Gitmo thing when he get back.
I think barry needs to visit Gitmo and stay there for life.
Watch for Obama to use funds from Health and Human Services instead...
It's curious, even strange, how adamant he is about terrorists being tried in civilian courts in this country and incarcerated in local federal prisons. Even to the point of pouring millions and millions into rehabilitating an empty Illinois facility.
Could it be that ole Barry is philosophically and emotionally on the side of the terrorists....to the point of pushing his weight around to insure the best trial and imprisonment deals for them even to the detriment of our own country?
Naw, this couldn't be, could it?
And this in a Congress with both houses in the hands of the Demwits. Thanks 2ndDivisionVet.
notice Obama said that this was unwise. So another of his many failed campaign promises. Kind of like “Ich bin eine Berliner”, when he was on his world tour. This is from the Emperor of the World with the 57 States - 1. Europe (except Great Britain), 2 - 49 United States (except Hawaii), 50. Hawaii (this is his supposed birth place - thus it is a separate Country). 51. Indonesia (his adopted home Country).52. Pakistan (remember to pronounce it Correctly)
53. Moclem Countries (Collectively 57, but Obama groups them as One - he is their leader) 54. India since he believes outsourcing of all America jobs is essential to the American Dream. 55. Venezuela this is where he will resettle after he is defeated in 2012. His half brother Chavez has a villa all ready for his occupancy. 56. Russia, claims he is their native son, and he was educated at the University of Moscow. 57. China, another state that claims he is their native son, and it is his personal Banker - The Bank of Beijing
So now we know have Obama comes to the understanding of the 57 States of the United States. Now we know where all the money is going too.
Brer Fox, Brer Fox!!! don'cha throw me in that briar patch!!
They are distancing themselves from the wackoleft
This is a narrow point in the bigger START bill, that passed yesterday in the Senate, 71 to 26.
Voting for, were all D’s plus the usual gang of liberal R’s.
Voting against were ONLY R’s:
Laughable. Obama failed to do what he promised to do and his liberal base got pissed. So Reid/Pelosi bail him out by passing legislation so it can’t happen. Ergo, when he campaigns for 2012 Obama will simply tell the disappointed liberal base that CONGRESS prevented it from happening. He always blames someone else for his failures.
I think we need to close the White House to keep us safe.
And Gitmo is still open.
What happened, Barry?
It’s the bottom of the ninth, two outs, and the Comeback Kid is hit by a grounder right in crotch. That’s gotta hurt.
hmmm...I think the answer to that is....
The desperate Obama and the Communist MSM do not realize the frustration and anger out in flyover country. We may have to have all the unemployed construction and factory workers march on Washingtopia and build an impenetrable wall around the beltway. We can then cut off the power and starve them out to the waiting mobs.
