Gov. Parkinson Says No Detainees

KSCB News - August 6, 2009 12:00 am

Kansas Gov. Mark Parkinson is repeating his

opposition to any plans by the Obama administration to relocate

suspected terrorists from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to Fort

Leavenworth.

Parkinson says it is too early to revamp the state’s security

plans based on news reports that the White House is considering

Kansas and a state prison in Michigan to house the detainees.

In his first public comments since reports surfaced Sunday,

Parkinson repeated previous statements on Wednesday that there are

no good solutions to the problem President Barack Obama inherited

when he took office in January.

But Parkinson said moving 229 suspects to the U.S. Disciplinary

Barracks in Kansas doesn’t solve the problem and he hopes the White

House finds another option.
