Joint Chiefs weren’t really behind Obama after all:

The chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff did not approve the Oct. 30 release of a terrorist held at the Guantanamo Bay prison, contrary to a Pentagon announcement that the transfer was “unanimously” approved by senior Obama administration officials.

Gen. Martin Dempsey, who retired Oct. 1 as chairman, said he did not support plans to release Aamer because of the detainee’s “conduct” after a 2009 interagency review certified him for transfer from the Cuban prison.
