Jack Murtha...Sure, Send Those Guys At Gitmo To My District

I guess he thinks they'll fit in just fine with the rednecks and racists there. At least they aren't cold blooded murders like those Marines in Fallujah. Or something.

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."

First of all, they are very dangerous in Gitmo. They certainly are to the guards. Second asshole, don't you think their terrorist buddies might, I don't know, try and break them out if they could get to the prison. It's not like that's never happened before (no the US isn't Afghanistan but it doesn't mean they won't give it a shot, does it?).

Dumb ass.

I'm guessing he sees earmark opportunities here. Of course we can't forget Murhta has already shown an affinity for criminals from the Mideast (as far as he knows).

Thanks to Ginger in the Biden thread for the heads up.
