* White House Statement of Administration Policy regarding NDAA FY 12

The White House has issued a veto threat in relation to the pending Defense Authorization bill, among other things singling out the language in the bill that would provide a fresh authorization for use of military force in relation to al Qaeda and others, and in relation to language restricting detainee transfers and decisions to prosecute. The statement appears here, and my further comments on the AUMF provision in particular are here.
