Gitmo Coming to a Prison in the Midwest -- Again

If you live in the Midwest, that is.

Yes, we thought we killed this "job creator"a long time ago. But Barry's administration apparently thought that when no one was looking, in the heat of a presidential campaign was a great time to buy a prison to house terrorists right in the heartland:

(Reuters) - The federal government will buy an Illinois prison that the Obama administration once considered as a successor to the detention camp at Guantanamo Bay, Attorney General Eric Holder said on Tuesday.

Holder said the Thomson Correctional Center will house U.S. inmates and that there are no plans to revive a 2009 effort to move some Guantanamo detainees to the United States.

Congress blocked funding for President Barack Obama's idea and tightly restricted all transfers from the camp at the Guantanamo Bay U.S. naval base in eastern Cuba.

Reuters is doing a tremendous job as the Obama spin machine here but the simple fact of the matter is this: Why else would Eric Holder be buying this prison -- against the wishes of the U.S. House which refused to autorize this purchase -- unless he was planning on putting his buddies from Gitmo that his former law firm has vigorously defended in the past there?   Let's face facts folks: Barry and his ilk consider many of these terrorists to be wrongfully imprisoned and in 2008 he ran on a whole bunch of stupid promises to his base that he has yet to fulfill. Some of these include telling the enemy exactly when we plan on getting out of Iraq and Afghanistan and if you recall back when this whole socialist nightmare began in January of 2009, Gitmo was going to be closed within the year. Until the practical realities of plopping hundreds of terrorists smack dab in the middle of the U.S. came home to roost. Not a whole lot of people want to live in a place where their fellow residents consider them infidels that they have committed to Allah to kill. So wit until everyone is wrapped up in the last month of a presidential campaign and slide it in under the radar. Then you can fully implement your plan after the election when you're a lame duck and Americans can't kick you out.   As this story points out, Illinois is safely in Barry's column so he can afford to piss off a few folks who don't want to have terrorists housed in their neighborhood. But if it's any consolation, listen to Little Dick Durbin -- the putz Democrat senator from Illinois: Housing terrorists is a "job creator"!
