    I’ll be the apologist on NDAA. It was passed with 89 yeas in the Senate; any veto would have been nothing but grandstanding.

    Also in the NDAA: The funding for servicemembers getting their paychecks; implementation of the START treaty; et cetera.

    This is the NDAA: http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=h112-1540&tab=summary

    Here’s an analysis of the worrisome bits: http://www.lawfareblog.com/2011/12/ndaa-faq-a-guide-for-the-perplexed/

    159 promises kept, 50 compromised on, and 176 in the works is 76% of total promises. 11% broken, including the Gitmo one, repealing the tax cuts for the rich, doubling federal funding for cancer research.
