The Republican-controlled House approved a $642 billion defense budget Friday that would restore proposed reductions of military personnel and hardware in President Barack Obama’s 2013 budget plan.
Despite a White House veto threat, the House approved its budget legislation by a vote of 299 to 120.
But it rejected an amendment that would have barred indefinite detention without trial of terrorist suspects, even for U.S. citizens seized on American soil.
