The vote was 90-6 in the Senate for blocking the transfer of detainees to the U.S.
We even had Democrats get on the floor, denounce the effort, advocate the closure of Guantanamo, and then vote to stop any detainees from coming to the US.
(Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California if you're wondering.)
The White House tried to downplay the vote, but being on the losing end of a 90-6 outcome doesn't exactly scream 'in control.'
"The President signed an order early in his Presidency to close (Guantanamo) and he intends to keep that promise," said White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs.
A few hours earlier, the FBI Director had told Congress that he isn't down with detainees being held in the US, comparing the threat to regular inmates who sometimes run criminal enterprises from inside the prison walls.
Maybe it's one of those issues where the White House will keep plunging ahead until the Congress simply orders the administration to stop.
Yesterday was a rebuke on Guantanamo Bay. The next time, it might be a major defeat.
