Obama - Gitmo versus ADX Supermax

Original post made by John, Del Prado, on May 21, 2009

Obama wants to shutdown Gitmo and transfer to ADX Supermax because Gitmo inhumane....you decide.

Prisoner life
In SHU, prisoners are generally allowed out of their cells for only one hour a day; they are kept in solitary confinement. They receive their meals through ports, also known as "chuck holes," in the doors of their cells. When Supermax inmates are allowed to exercise, this may take place in a small, enclosed area where the prisoner will exercise alone.

Prisoners are under constant surveillance, light on 24 hours a day ,usually with closed-circuit television cameras. Cell doors are usually opaque, while the cells may be windowless. Conditions are spartan, with poured concrete or metal furniture common. Often cell walls, and sometimes plumbing, are soundproofed to prevent communication between the inmates.

And three square meals in the tropical sun.

And medical & dental via excellent military doctors.

And the compass arrow that points to Mecca.

And the prayer rugs.

And the beautifully bound copies of the Koran.

And the sun tans.

I think we are doing this incorrectly. California or Arnie should petition to take all of them in California for a significant fee as he is willing to do anything for money and after we get all of them we should not afford them special protection but rather release them in the general prison population in San Quentin, Folsom, Corcoran, and Mule Creek...............problem solved.

I still think that if they were placed on Alcatraz, they could enjoy the fresh air and the view.
Everybody could be given a blanket and they could be fed daily by Glide.

If they try to swim off the island, they will likely drown. Problem solved.

Sorry for getting serious about this topic, but these guys at Gitmo are dangerous people who in most cases believe that you and I should be dead by their hands. Their fanatical version of Islam tells them that we are infidels and should die.
There is already a big problem in the state prison system with radical Islam inmates converting other inmates to their way of thinking. What do you think would happen when you put these Gitmo-radicals into the prison population and allow them to start teaching their ideology to those prisoners who have parole possibilities? You eventually end up with more radical Islamist extremists on the street than you could have ever imagined.
When you identify a killer disease you don't let the carriers roam around in the general population. You do everything you can to isolate, quarantine it, and eliminate it.

Supporting my earlier comment about developing radical Islam in prison, read this article about the 4 terrorists arrested in New York attempting to blow up synagogues. They converted in prison...

Case closed. Lock the doors and throw away the keys to Gitmo. Just keep feeding them and cleaning up after them. But leave them there. Don't bring them here.

MOSES, ROOSEVELT AND OBAMA
-----------------------------------------------------
Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel " pick up your shovel , mount your asses and camels , and I will lead you to the promise land".


Nearly 75 years ago , Roosevelt said, " Lay down your shovels , sit on your asses , and light up a camel , this is the promised land".


Now Obama is going to steal your shovel , kick your asses , Raise the price of camels , and mortgage the promised land
