Rep. Jack Murtha, D-Pa., says he'd be willing to house prisoners from Guantanamo Bay in his congressional district if President Obama makes good on a plan to close the U.S. prison there.
As one of his first acts in office, the president circulated a draft Wednesday that would shut down Guantanamo Bay within a year.
Murtha only has a minimum security prison in his district. But he says he'd have no reservations about holding detainees there in a maximum security prison.
"Sure, I'd take 'em," said Murtha, an outspoken critic of the Iraq war. "They're no more dangerous in my district than in Guantanamo."
Murtha added that there was "no reason not to put 'em in prisons in the United States and handle them the way they would handle any other prisoners."
I wonder what this moonbats constituents will have to say about this nonsense. I know if I lived in his district, I would be SOME PISSED OFF! What a moron. I hope he just killed his political career. No wonder Congress's approval rating has been so low lately. With idiots like Jack Murtha in there, I'm surprised it is even above ZERO! Pennslyvania doesn't strike me as being quite that far gone yet, is it? You can find the rest of the story by following this link. I recommend that you do.
