Kansas senators say Gitmo transfer a no go
For those of you already losing sleep over the possibility that torture-tuned terrorism suspects currently held at Guantanamo Bay might end up at Fort Leavenworth, I have four words: Rest easy my pretties.
Today, Prime Buzz reported that Sens. Sam Brownback and Pat Roberts are “confident” the deal is kaput. The U.S. Disciplinary Barracks at Fort Leavenworth was one of a handful of facilities being considered for the high-profile terrorism suspects.
President Barack Obama has pledged to close the terrorism detention center at Guantanamo Bay by January. Nervous legislators and lawyers have been kicking around ideas since February.
The debate continues about where those broken men are going to end up. If Brownback and Roberts are right, we know it won’t be in their backyard.
