Here is a snippet of President Obama's speech today.
Let me begin by disposing of one argument as plainly as I can: we are not going to release anyone if it would endanger our national security, nor will we release detainees within the United States who endanger the American people. Where demanded by justice and national security, we will seek to transfer some detainees to the same type of facilities in which we hold all manner of dangerous and violent criminals within our borders - highly secure prisons that ensure the public safety. As we make these decisions, bear in mind the following fact: nobody has ever escaped from one of our federal "supermax" prisons, which hold hundreds of convicted terrorists. As Senator Lindsey Graham said: "The idea that we cannot find a place to securely house 250-plus detainees within the United States is not rational." You can read it's entirety here!
How do you feel about bringing the terrorist from Guantanamo to the United States Prisons?
Oh my goodness.. what is good about this? Who cares if no one ever has escaped our "SuperMax" Security Prisons! I feel like we are asking for trouble of all kinds by bringing these terrorist to our soil. It doesn't make sense.. and I smell something very fishy.
