Illinois prison top contender to house Gitmo detainees, official says on Fluent News. Here is the link: http://fluentnews.com/s/21164210
OK. The Feds are looking at buying a mostly empty prison west of Chicago, and then using it for the Gitmo detainees.
This is not quite what I had in mind when it came to shutting down Gitmo.
We are no better than those whom we call terrorists when we hold people in prison for years without due process.
The people being held at Gitmo should be sent home in first class with a bucket of money for their trouble. Later should they take up arms against US, fly nuke bearing cruise missles up their bohuncuses.
These folks should have never been taken as prisoners in the first place. Just imagine the economic efficiency of the single three-round burst from an M16 many years ago.
Not to mention the political expediency.
And then there's that word: Detainee. This business of making it all sound better just makes me want to spit on the ground.
Detainees, my hairy ass!
