But here's the thing Dickhead Cheney, Guantanamo Bay Military Facility is technically American soil!!! So we already have terrorists on American soil dipshit. Some might argue, "Well but it's a military base, which is makes it much harder for them to escape." Oh yeah? Well get this you "not in my backyard" whiners--We have a maximum security military prison in the heartland of America at Fort Levenworth, Kansas.
Oh but the spineless politicians don't want them going to Fort Leavenworth (a maximum security military prison) because they are worried they'd be a terrorist target. Or that they'd break out of prison, which doesn't give much credit to the fine men and women guarding that military prison. Second, Gitmo surely has been a terrorist target for years and yet not one prisoner has escaped and not one attack occured. Fort Leavenworth is a military base like Gitmo and if a small military base on the tip of Cuba, which is practically out in the middle of the Atlantic can defend itself from an attack then so can a prison in the middle of Kansas.
Here in Colorado where I live we have one of the most secure prisons in America. It's referred to as, "supermax" and has many hardened, ruthless, killers--some of the worst in America and I feel safe as can be. I trust our prison guards, officials, staff and FBI who are well trained over years and years of experience on how to handle unique prisoners. I thought Republicans and Cheney were all about supporting the first responders and our troops as being patriotic but when it comes time to put their money where their mouth is and take some of these prisoners they say our first responders and military at military prisons can't handle it? I thought our military and first responders were the best in the world--which they are--So why the lack of confidence? To throw a charge back at you that you so often wrongfully threw at us liberals, "Why do you hate America so much?"
Nice confidence and way to stand up for our first responders--use them to sell your fear and charges of unpatriotism against people but when it comes time to back up those words with action they collapse like a folding chair. So send all 100 of them here--we can handle them. We already have some here:
Zacarias Moussaoui, Conspirator in the September 11, 2001 attacks
Omar Abdel-Rahman, "The Blind Sheik"; involved in 1993 WTC bombing
Richard Colvin Reid, Islamic terrorist, nicknamed the "Shoe Bomber"
Wadih el-Hage, Conspirator in the 1998 US embassy bombings
Mahmud Abouhalima, Islamic Mujahideen leader, 1993 WTC bombing
Jose Padilla, Convicted of aiding terrorists
Mohammed A. Salameh, 1993 WTC bombing
In fact, Salameh (along with Mohammed Saleh and Victor Alvarez, convicted in a separate plot to bomb several targets in NYC) had spent many years in Leavenworth, specifically the federal penitentiary. So did Thomas Silverstein, who the BBC once called "America's most dangerous prisoner." Furthermore, Padilla had spent time in the Charleston brig, where another "enemy combatant," Ali Saleh Kahlah al-Marri, currently resides. As far as the prison on Ft. Leavenworth, serial killer Ronald Gray has spent the last 20 years there. Also, during World War II, 14 German prisoners of war were transferred to the USDB after killing their fellow inmates.TPJ: And we haven't so much as heard a peep from them as far as breaking out or even misbehaving, have you heard of any incidents? I sure haven't and I live here!! Our state has many military bases as well so even if one of two of these guys escapes they'd be tracked down in a hurry--as most prisoners are in America on the rare occasions they escape. Besides, breaking out of supermax would take a lot of work. And as I say we have hundreds of gang members safely housed who are basically domestic terrorists in prisons all across America. There is a tiny town in Montana, which has a brand new, maximum security prison that is standing empty waiting to house these terrorists. In fact, the city council voted unanimously to house those "detainees" there. In fact, they said they could take 40% of the terrorists currently being held at Gitmo!! Plus, it would help create desperately needed jobs:
TPJ: Cheney went on to say in his speech that we'd have to use tax payer dollars to house these terrorists on the mainland but how does he think we've been paying to house them in Gitmo???
