The president’s strong hint in his speech today that the Gitmo terrorists are headed to Colorado’s Supermax puts Colorado’s Democratic Governor Ritter and its two Democratic senators Bennett and Udall on the spot. If they remain silent and acquiesce in this dangerous manipulation of national security for political purposes, the voters in the Rocky Mountain State will know all they need to know about the vote coming up in 2010.
BTW: Supermax holds 490, and there are already more than 400 inmates. So even if the whole Gitmo gang goes to Colorado, where do they put the Unabomber’s buddies who have to move on?
And what do the guards and staff of Supermax (and their families) think about being ground zero for Islamist fanatics in the U.S.?
