The Hill's Defcon blog has the scoop: in votes today regarding the rules for detention under the FY2013 NDAA, the House rejected the Smith-Amash amendment in a 238-182 largely party-line vote (19 Democrats voted against it, and 19 Republicans voted for it), and endorsed the competing amendment offered by Reps. Gohmert, Landry, and Rigell also in a 243-173 party-line vote (13 Democrats voted in favor, 7 Republicans voted against).  

Steve points out the latter proposal's corrosive features here.
