Rapists OK, Serial Killers OK, Terrorists, NO.

Republican political leaders will go down in history as among the least able to present a coherent point of view when it comes to responding to anything that President Obama proposes. Two Republican senators are holding up the appointment of former Republican congressman, John McHugh as Secretary of the Army, until they get answers to questions about whether or not terrorists might be housed at the Disciplinary Barracks at Fort Leavenworth. I gather this means it is OK in Kansas for rapists to be hold in the Barracks or serial killers or child molesters, but, God forbid someone ACCUSED of being a terrorist is sent to this well guarded fort and everyone in Kansas rushes to get new locks for their doors.

Leavenworth is already a tough high-security facility with an excellent record of dealing with hardened criminals. Honest, Kansans, the evil ACCUSED terrorists will not enter your homes to rape and kill. If I was from Kansas I might worry more about my neighbor as the killer than someone locked in Fort Leavenworth.
