HELP! DU this poll
http://www.9news.com /

it is halfway down on the right side...

the question is where to put the prisoners from Gitmo.

Colorado's "supermax" prison already houses Americas "bombers row" (houses ted "unibomber" kazinski, and the guy that bombed the WTC the first time)and is the modern equivalent of Alcatraz.
we all know the republicans are using closing gitmo as an obstructonist tactic.

Frankly supermax is the most secure with facilities to try any and all talaban/Alqueda suspects.

2. They don't want them here in Kansas either
Our Senator Brownback has been all over the media criticizing Obama for this. And our DEMOCRATIC governor Sebelius agrees with Brownback!

3. Our gov Ritter
is in favor of their relocation to here and frankly so am I.

Florence is a very high security place. I got lost Four wheeling once and found pavement just outside Florence. (about 5 miles out on a road that was not even on the map.) I wasnt on pavement for 100 yards before I was pulled over just for being there.

al queda and taliban "rescue" teams would be detected and swooped up before they got close.

6. Don't bother
Edited on Sat Jan-24-09 01:09 PM by JFN1
It's not an honest poll - just look at the choices. It reminds me of a Colbert bit, "awesome - or most awesome?"

Given the choice between sticking suspected terrorists in your own backyard, or keeping them where they are now - which do you prefer?

Puh-lease. Don't waste any electrons on that thing...
