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
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.
