House passes $690 billion defense bill
from The Washington Post
The House passed overwhelmingly a $690 billion defense authorization bill for fiscal year 2012 that fully funds operations in Afghanistan and Iraq and limits President Obama's authority to deal with Guantanamo detainees and to reduce the number of nuclear weapons. The White House has warned that those latter provisions could prompt a veto if they were included in the final version of the bill. That prospect remains unclear since the Senate version of the measure has yet to be put together by its Armed Services Committee.
