Answer: You'd better be prepared to fulfill them!
We hear that Pres BO is going to move some detainees to a prison west of Chicago. (I wrote "I hear" because Pres BO is silent about it and simply putting out memos on such a serious matter. Doesn't this man know that he is the president of the US and needs to explain these decisions!)
Why move dangerous people?
Again, it's all about keeping the disillusioned left wing of the party happy.
After all, we are still in Iraq, we are sending another 30,000 troops to Afghanistan, the Bush anti-terror approach is intact and the stimulus has failed miserably.
And the base did not show up to vote in Virginia and New Jersey!
What do you do?
You take 70 detainees and you move them to Illinois!
Is this insane? Yes it is!
How would you like to be the Dem candidate for the US Senate in Illinois?
According to Rasmussen: 51% in Illinois Oppose Prison for Guantanamo Terrorists In Their State
Let's hope that Pres BO consulted with the Illinois delegation!
Last, but not least, what about the legal implications of bringing these people to US soil?
Has the White House considered what happens when these people are filing lawsuits from American soil?
