Have jail, will house Gitmo detainees
President Obama’s administration is experiencing a bad case of nimbyism in its efforts to find high-security prisons to house terror suspects from the military’s Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, detention camp. However, one Montana town is more than eager to keep al Qaeda’s most notorious in the town’s state-of-the-art Big House. Hardin’s $27 million Two Rivers Regional Correctional Facility has been empty since its completion two years ago, and city officials hope filling it with captured suspected terrorists would give the town a much-needed economic boost, according to CNN.com. Of course, not everybody is excited by the prospect of bringing the Gitmo prisoners to town, despite the promise of jobs. “Bottom line, I really don’t want Gitmo in my backyard,” one resident told CNN.
