Import Gitmo Terrorists?

Governor Ritter thinks it is an acceptable idea to bring terrorists and battlefield combatants currently heal at Guantanamo Bay to the Super Max prison in Colorado.

What an incredibly stupid thing to suggest, there is no gentle way to put this.

I just finished reading Mark Steyn’s “America Alone” where he lays out in great detail the threat to freedom and our modern society posed by the spread of Islam as practiced by Osama bin Laden and his buddies in the Wahhabi sect.

It’s a great book and you should read it so you can understand how supposedly free countries in Europe and elsewhere are gradually creeping toward sharia law.

One of the points that stood out clearly in the book is the risk of conversion of our criminals in prison to this form of Islam.

How dangerous is it for a person who looks like they fit right in in America and who has already exhibited enough anti-social behavior to end up in prison converted to a religion that encourages them to kill non-believers?

How many converts would we see in a prison located right here in Colorado if this move is allowed?

Even the term limited leftist Governor Sebelius of Kansas said “hell no” to moving the Gitmo prisoners to her state and she has an actual military prison.


  1. Good to see you posting here, Senator! I enjoy your emailed reports immensely. But please don't get so involved here you forget about the sensible laws (such as supporting the 2nd amendment) you are fighting for!

    As to the subject, you make some great points I hadn't thought of. My thought is that we already have a great prison for these terrorists, in a sunny place with beautiful weather year around.

    If the policies of the prison must be changed because of the new administration, then do so! But why close down the physical facility so many millions were spent to build?

    It's nuts.

  2. Because so many people brains are hardwired by association. Gitmo=torture. Mr. Obama would have to expend some political capital to keep it open.

    I sure never thought about the conversion of other prisoners in Colorado's supermax. But isn't the nature of such prisons solitary confinement? That would make conversion difficult.
