Gov. Kathleen Sebelius has endorsed closure of the Guantanamo Bay facility in Cuba that holds at least 250 suspected Islamic radicals.
In a Statehouse news conference Wednesday, the Democratic governor also said she wasn’t a fan of moving detainees to Fort Leavenworth’s disciplinary barracks in Kansas.
“I do support the president-elect’s intention to close Guantanamo Bay and discontinue what I think has been a huge black eye for this country around the world,” Sebelius said. “Closing Guantanamo Bay doesn’t mean that the prisoners come to the heartland of America.”
The military prison is believed to be on a short list of sites under consideration.
In other words governor you favor their transfer as long as they aren’t headed your way. In some circles, including mine, that’s called being a NIMBY.
Funny, but sad at the same time.
Funny because she’s a NIMBY, which truth be told, is par for the course for many of her political persuasion.
Sad because she is apparently afraid of 250 terrorists yet thinks nothing of vetoing a bill that would regulate abortion procedures in the state that is infamous for its high number of late-term abortions, many of which are performed by Dr. George “Killer” Tiller
