Why are a pair of foreign terrorists sitting in a jail in Kentucky? That’s what Senate GOP Minority Leader Mitch McConnell wants to know. He wants them sent to the facilities at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, where they belong.
Why is the Justice Department doing this? Why expose our heartland to these monsters? “The problem is, we’ve got them in a U.S. court. With all of the attendants security problems for the city of Bowling Green,” McConnell told Fox News. “How much is the security going to cost them? What about the judge and security for the judge? What about the juries and security for the juries? There’s no reason in the world, Bill, to be subjecting any American city to all of the complexities and security problems related to trying a foreign terrorist in a U.S. court.”
“… there’s no requirement that a foreign terrorist be tried in a U.S. court simply because they were captured in the United States,” McConnell said.
This is simply outrageous. Even Obama has admitted that Gitmo is the place for these evil-doers by his admission that he can’t close the place down. Yet his Justice Dept. is visiting a trial for admitted terrorists on the heartland!
Barack Obama is happily painting a Muslim terror target on the state of Kentucky.
