Now I’m going to have you read this article first. Then an article about my home state of Montana. It seems that some states; mostly poor states, like mine are thinking that having the most dangerous terrorists in the world housed in their state a “cash cow.”
From Fox News:
LONDON — The United States is “relatively close” to making decisions on what to do with an initial group of Guantanamo Bay detainees, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said Sunday.
Holder spoke to The Associated Press during a flight to London, the first of several stops where he will visit with European leaders to discuss terrorism, drugs, and cyber-crime.
The attorney general did not say how much longer he thought it would take to close the Guantanamo Bay detention facility in Cuba. Before officials can meet President Obama’s January deadline, the U.S. must first decide which detainees to put on trial and which to release to the U.S. or other countries.
My State already bids for mentally disturbed people from around the country. I know, I worked for the State for 5 years as an evening Nurse Supervisor for a one of these facilities. So now we wanted terrorists. But thankfully it didn’t happen. We have enough prisons and mental institutions. Why don’t we stick with money within our state using our resources, like cattle, wheat and such. We export all our food now. I know because I am forced to buy beef from outside our country. Yea I know there are co-op programs here, not enough. I’d like to buy from my local farm/ranch.
From USA TODAY:
The city council in Hardin, Mont., thought it had a great idea for filling it’s underutilized jail — bid for the contract to take the detainees from Gitmo, according to the Billings Gazette,
But two days after it voted to pursue the contract, the council has run into a few obstacles — namely, the entire Montana Congressional delegation.
