Pelosi: No G’itmo Jihadis At Alcatraz

Let’s see: last week, cBS news had a storystating that Republicans were almost apoplectic in trying to make sure that the Guantanamo detainees were not brought to domestic soil. Yet, when it is Nancy Pelosi, what does cBS news do? Well, not bother covering the story, which was ignored by most major media outlets. Have to go to Fox News for the details

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday shrugged off Republican suggestions that the federal government reopen Alcatraz prison in her San Francisco district to house detainees from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

President Obama this week signed an executive order calling for the closure of the prison at Guantanamo within the year. Republican Rep. Bill Young then suggested to White House counsel Greg Craig that the prisoners who could not be released back to their home countries or sent to a third country be put up in “the Rock,” the famous military installation and prison that closed down in 1963 and is now part of the National Park Service.

Asked whether that was a serious proposal, Pelosi said, “It is — no.”

Why not, Nancy? Sure, as you point out, it is a national park and tourist attraction, but, certainly that can be changed quickly. Heck, fence a portion off and it can still be a tourist attraction. Liberals can pop in to pay homage to the jihadis they love, and boo the US military men and women who guard them. Status quo.

Crooks and Liars had a story which called Republicans unwillingness to allow detention centers in their districts “Sheer recalcitrant and obstructive stupidity.” So far, the only Democrat willing to take the jihadis into his area is Jack Murtha, which did not amuse people who live in Pennsylvania

We thought the idea was to keep terrorists out of our country. How silly of us.

Fortunately, U.S. Rep. John Murtha has shown us the error of our ways.

The Johnstown Democrat says he’d have no problems having suspected terrorists being held at a military detention facility in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, incarcerated in his western Pennsylvania district.

And more here, here, and here. So, come on, Democrats, step up like Murtha did, and offer your district/state as a place to house the jihadis. How about near wherever Cernig, who wrote the Crooks and Liars article, lives? Y’all wanted G’itmo closed: now what?

    Well you could put them in the prisons where we already have terrorists that have been convicted. Most are in Florence CO. Putting them in Alcatraz is not an option it was closed 50 years ago because it was falling apart the masonry is crumbling.

    OMA – Oh My Allah – What? No Alcatraz for CLUB GITMO Abdul El Kaboom islamo lameos? 1,001 infidel pardons Blackbeard. That’s right, San Fransicko is the second home of Cafeteria Catholic Nutsy Pelosi. I forgot. These sandal clad bearded exploding whacko camel jockeys would fit right in on the streets of San Fransicko. But I thought Lee Harvey Murtha wanted these ZZ TOP look alikes in Pennsylvania minimum security?

  3. The ACLU of Colorado doesn’t want them there, either, John. Gotta find that link again. Was going to post it this evening.
