    I don't care why Obama vetoes this bill, as long as he vetoes this bill.

    1. I don't believe he'll veto it.

    2. All he wants is that he -- the Executive -- can retain the power to decide who gets detained and who gets killed (Anwar al-Awlaki and his teenage son, to name two; listing all detainees -- American citizens all -- would take too long). He doesn't give a flying fig about the rule-of-law implications, all his high-sounding rhetoric to the contrary. He wants the power to make these decisions; he doesn't want Congress interfering.
