Let me add a little subtext here:
Republican state leaders and lawmakers are pushing back against the Pentagon’s potential plans to relocate Guantanamo Bay detainees at prisons in their states.
“Simply put, we do not want them in our states,” reads a letter from Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback and South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley sent Tuesday to Defense Secretary Ash Carter.
“Please know that we will take any action within our power to make sure no Guantanamo Bay detainees are transferred to South Carolina or Kansas.”
To wit: …and you so-and-sos in Dizzy City have done your level best in the past to get rid of both of us – and failed. Elections have consequences, bub. Kansas, especially. Anybody here think that Paul Davis would have stood up to the administration on this one? No? Me, neither.
PS: There’s a real easy solution to Gitmo, by the way: stop acting like it’s a problem.
