Sam Brownback opposes moving Gitmo detainees to Kansas !?
http://www.armytimes.com/news/2008/12/ap_leavenworth_de... /
Such a move would violate federal law on housing soldiers near enemy prisoners of war, the Republican senator said at a news conference.


NOW they're POWs. ??!?

They were held indefinitely outside of US Boundaries for all these years without counsel or access to a legitimate court system, subjected to torture in that BLACK HOLE that has brought international shame on America because they weren't POWs..

And now we can't bring them to Kansas because they ARE ? ?

That is disgusting in a cosmic way that defies description.
