    Guess what old Murtha wants now, those in Gitmo for neighbors!

    Murtha Says He'd Take Guantanamo Prisoners in His District
    Rep. Jack Murtha volunteers to house prisoners from Guantanamo Bay in his Pennsylvania district, as President Obama prepares to order the shut-down of the facility.

    Rep. Jack Murtha, D-Pa., says he'd be willing to house prisoners from Guantanamo Bay in his congressional district if President Obama makes good on a plan to close the U.S. prison there.

    As one of his first acts in office, the president circulated a draft Wednesday that would shut down Guantanamo Bay within a year.

    Murtha only has a minimum security prison in his district. But he says he'd have no reservations about holding detainees there in a maximum security prison.

    "Sure, I'd take 'em," said Murtha, an outspoken critic of the Iraq war. "They're no more dangerous in my district than in Guantanamo."

    Murtha added that there was "no reason not to put 'em in prisons in the United States and handle them the way they would handle any other prisoners."

    As long as he puts a ball and chain on them, that's fine with me. I don't want them migrating though.

    Closing GITMO is a SHAM - they are not closing it, they are just going to move it.

    It is a cowardly act. Obama is trying to fool the idiots on the left (and he will probably succeed), but it is nothing more than a political ploy from a man who is finding out that he is in WAYYYY over his head.
    I long for the days when our President actually liked our country.

    I think that Murtha should let them come live with him. After all that is the liberal thing to do. Joanne98 on DU seems to like prisoners, perhaps she can be persuaded to take in a few.

    Considering how Murtha feels about the voters in his district, this is probably not a good idea.
