Earlier today Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said at a news conference that he doesn't want any Gitmo detainees held in prisons in the United States. CQ has the transcript:
REID: Change course on what?
QUESTION: On funding the closing of Guantanamo Bay.
REID: Well, the decision to close Guantanamo was a right one.
I agree with President Bush. I agree with John McCain. I agree with Barack Obama. Guantanamo makes us less save.
However, this is neither the time nor the bill to deal with this. Democrats under no circumstances will move forward without a comprehensive, responsible plan from the president.
We will never allow terrorists to be released into the United States. [...]
QUESTION: But Senator, Senator, it's not that you're not being clear when you say you don't want them released. But could you say -- would you be all right with them being transferred to an American prison?
REID: Not in the United States.
