    it isn't a stall of the Defense Authorization bill it really a head fake. The bill itself is not due until October so it will get passed in plenty of time.

    He is holding it up in order to hold up more Repub amendments. I don't know if that is a good idea or not. It the Repub amendments would not pass anyway why hold them up? In the end we need bipartisan support in the Senate to get anything through. So to piss off the Repubs in not letting them present amendments is not exactly building bridges.

    All the Dems this time around voted for Levin-Reed. So if they held their ground then there is no way the Repub amendments could pass. So I don't get what Reid is up to. I think he is being a bit too strong on this one.
