Plan to transfer Gitmo detainees angers Colorado

DENVER — The Defense Department’s plan to consider two Colorado prisons as possible destinations for Guantanamo Bay detainees is meeting with outrage from the state’s Republican congressional delegation, demonstrating the political resistance President Obama faces as he tries to honor his promise to close down the Cuba detainee facility.

Rep. Doug Lamborn, the Colorado Republican who represents the district in which both prisons are located, called it “outrageous and unacceptable for President Obama to waste time and taxpayer dollars on a dangerous fantasy that will go nowhere.”

    If GITMO PEOPLE are segregated who can they change to radical Muslims?

    Another insane idea from our insane government. Prisoners of America should not be put in American jails they should have been terminated like they did the people of peace.

    Could some-one straighten me out on this, because I just don’t get it. Obama says he wants to shut down Club Gitmo, why?? “They” just spent 1 million dollars to give his friends a soccer field to play on, his friends in Gitmo get special meals, they have sun, palm trees, and beaches, a degree of privacy, their “religious” rights are protected, they have access to T V, radio, and other good things, so why would Obama want to take that away from them, then send them to a concrete, and steel environment. Doesn’t make any sense.

      Obama wants to give Gitmo back to Cuba dictators, so they can lease it to Russia.

    Put them in the Whitehouse with the rest of the Muslim Brotherhood. (Scarc)
