AP Sources: Military-Civilian Terror Prison Eyed

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Obama administration is looking at creating a courtroom-within-a-prison complex in the U.S. to house suspected terrorists, combining military and civilian detention facilities at a single maximum-security prison.

Several senior U.S. officials said the administration is eyeing a soon-to-be-shuttered state maximum security prison in Michigan and the military penitentiary at Fort Leavenworth, Kan.

So, this is the answer to closing Guantanamo?

This is only going to confound the issue of having courtrooms outside of prisons for the regular jails, because eventually someone will point out how much more efficient this new concept is and ask the question of why they do not have it for regular prisons.

Yet another way to bypass what the public wants, by bringing terrorists onto American soil.

You cannot ask for the closure of Guantanamo, as those prisoners have to go somewhere, and they could end up living in a complex right next to your home if you're not careful.

I know the perfect place, there's this little ranch out in Crawford, Texas...

There could be terrorists living next door to you, or sitting next to you in a cafe or shoeshop or bus or on the beach .. right now.

There could be a serial killer within three feet of you right now.

Someone with an infectious disease might be about to sneeze all over you in two seconds.


'Terrorist' David Hicks was held by the US for years. Then released in Australia, his land of origin. He's always appeared extremely calm and non-violent when shown by the msm. After his release, he attended college in Australia. Again, no reported incidents involving him have ever appeared in the media or elsewhere. He recently married. He seems very much like a normal guy with perhaps greater sense of morality than the average, which propelled him to fight alongside the oppressed against what many consider to be the terroristic West.

No way am I in support of this act by the Obama administration! This proposal is another step at control by the heavy hand of the Federal government. A court room with a prison for alleged terrorists? Is the press going to have access to said courtroom and who is a terrorist and who isn't?

I think Homeland Security Secretary, Janet Napolitano, has stated for the record who they deem as a terrorist. She mentioned anyone that speaks out contrary to government policy. It is only a matter of time before they follow through on that threat. The apparatus is slowly being put in place to accomplish it.

I know they are trying to tie this in with handling the fiasco at Gitmo but don't believe for one second that it can't be used for an ulterior motive down the road. This is smoking mirrors plain and simple! I'm not buying this proposal and something better needs to be offered. This is truly getting weird almost like a twilight zone episode.

What is to stop our benevolent leaders from throwing Americans into those prison courtrooms without a jury or even a public trial? It has happened in the past when Abraham Lincoln locked up dissenters during the Civil War indefinitely while suspending Habeas Corpus. With the economy in the tank and people getting restless every day, I can see an ulterior motive with this one, plain and simple. People better start talking about these things with their friends, family, and co-workers even if they risk upsetting them, because if they are not careful; they might be in that prison some day? This is very serious, and the pressure is continuing to ratchet up. No way in hell would I support this abomination of law on continental US soil!

I find it interesting that there have been a slew of these threads created and keeping them from diluting one another has become problematic.
