ACLU Says No To Gitmo Detainees In Colorado

Aren’t you just thrilled that the ACLU assigns American rights to non-US citizens captured on the battlefields around the world fighting and wearing no uniforms?

screw ballPoliticians in Colorado are split over the chance detainees from Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, could be imprisoned at the Supermaxfederal detention facility in Florence. Some say Supermax can handle Gitmo suspects just fine, others warn it’s too dangerous. But the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Colorado said in a statement to the Colorado Independent Friday afternoon that moving Gitmo detainees — including many only suspected of crimes — to the country’s most secure prison “is simply another form of torture, one which makes a mockery of ‘innocent until proven guilty.’ ”

While the Obama administration’s plans to shut down Gitmo earn the group’s applause, ACLU of Colorado executive director Cathryn Hazouri says the conditions at Supermax won’t be an improvement for terror suspects. Noting that several Gitmo detainees have been released after the Bush administration admitted it couldn’t prove guilt, Hazouri questions whether a move to the tiny cells at Supermax, where most inmates are kept in solitary confinement 23 hours a day, is fair treatment for suspects awaiting trial.

Get Hazouri a waaa-bulance! The full text of her press release is at the link, where she is whining about how downright mean it would be to put the little darling at ADX Florence. Say, Cathryn, do you have a, you know, better idea of where to put the little jihadis? I’m sure you have wanted Guantanamo closed for a long time, surely you have a better idea? Obama doesn’t have one. Nancy Pelosi doesn’t want Alcatraz reopened for them. No other Democrat except Jack Murtha is willing to take them in their state. So, what now?

As President Bush said during one of his debates with John “Poodle” Kerry, “a litany of complaints is not a plan.”

    Teach it sounds as though you are afraid of having terrorists imprisoned in the USA, are you afraid of this ?

  2. There is some concern, John. What if some of the other jihadis decide to do a prison break? What if they get loose? These are not nice people.

    Not to mention I do not think they should get American rights, which will happen the moment they are on American soil.

    Ryan, Teddy ‘Vodka’ Kennedy and Harry Reid can house these ‘islamo lame o’ boy scouts. The Vatican can even take them in
    as future altar boys! Ryan thinks he knows more than the Bureau of Prison chiefs, eh? Ryan knows EVERYTHING about prison environments too? What a special law enforcement department of corrections wonder! ALLELUIA and WE ARE ONE?
