"Ignoring a White House veto threat, the Republican-led House voted 315-108 for the legislation, which would block President Barack Obama from closing the U.S. detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba,"

So Obama wants to close Guantanamo Bay but the GOP controlled House won't let him..... GUESS THIS ANSWERS THE QUESTION that we see so many TINFOIL HAT WEARERS posting all the time.

"These deliveries highlight the broad regional implications of the proxy war Washington has waged against the Assad regime, relying primarily on Islamist forces tied to Al Qaeda, and the risk of a US war in Syria escalating into a regional or even global conflict."

I thought "Al Qaeda" was the US enemy? So we are giving them support against the Syrian Goberment....SHEEPLE can't connect the dots!

So there is a major hurdle in ending funding problems, but will Obama veto this, or will the libeals in the Senate do that. Until we agree to keep funding Obama's Middle Eastern war machines he is going to try to starve us. We need to just quit fooling around with him. He is no longer concerned who likes him, he is in office for his last term. So he will keep sending billions to Islamic rebels while our bridges fall in, our businesses close and one in six American children goes to bed hungry each night. The IRS misuse of power is more than enough to impeach him, we need to just get that over with before he sells the country out completely. Obama has sent nearly $3 billion dollars in "aid" (that means guns and stuff) to Islamic warriors in the ME since April. And yet...can't say it enough, 1 in 6 chlidren are hungry in America. And he shows more concern for the terrorists at Gitmo than he does for the American people.

As long as we continue funding and arming groups like the "Syrian rebels", who have pledged their loyalty to Al-Qaeda, I can't in good conscience support this rubber-stamping of Defense funding. Defend America. We are not the world's police!!!!!!1
