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

Gitmo CartoonThe Pentagon has confirmed that a Kuwaiti released from the US detention camp at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, three years ago carried out a suicide bombing in Iraq last month.

Abdallah Salih al-Ajmi and two other Kuwaitis are reported by their families to have taken part in an attack on Iraqi security forces in Mosul, a northern city that is the scene of intense fighting.

Although the families did not specify a date, seven people were killed in a suicide attack in Mosul on April 26.

In answer to the title’s question, why yes, she was. Along with these five nitwits and the appeasement monkey Obama-wamma-slamma.

What do all you weak-kneed idjits have to say now?

This is an appropriate place for the sage advice of Jeffrey Breinholt:

It is easy for human rights organizations to criticize Gitmo. The harder problem is finding an acceptable solution to detain terrorists willing to give their lives to kill us. So far, the best one seems to be the Military Tribunals, which might have offered a better alternative than repatriating Abdullah Saleh al-Ajmi to Kuwait, where could try to kill those who helped liberate his home country on behalf of those who invaded it.
