Senate rebukes Obama, blocks Guantanamo shutdown

WASHINGTON – In a rare, bipartisan defeat for President Barack Obama, the Senate voted overwhelmingly Wednesday to keep the prison at Guantanamo Bay open for the foreseeable future and forbid the transfer of any detainees to facilities in the United States.

Okay - I've been waiting to read or hear some analysis of this that spells out the secret behind-the-scenes story in a way that makes sense. So far, nothing.

Seems to me this is just another "We need better Democrats" moment.

Am I missing something?
