About closing Club Gitmo, allowing terrorists to be housed within the borders of the U.S., and eliminating military tribunals for terrorists? Hell--The ever-tone-deaf Jihad Jack Murtha's all over that, even to the point of housing your friendly terrorist right in PA-12's own neighborhood, just a stone's throw away from Shanksville.
Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., said he would take the detainees in his own district, which lies just a few miles from the field near Shanksville, Pa., where United Flight 93 crashed after it was hijacked by terrorists on Sept. 11, killing all 44 people aboard.9/11 survivor families are outraged, as they (and every other American) should be:
"Sure, I'd take them. They're no more dangerous in my district than in Guantanamo," Murtha said, calling the Guantanamo prison a "sore in the United States' moral standards."
"There's no reason not to put them in prisons in the United States and handle them the way they would handle any other prisoners."
"To me it's beyond comprehension that they would take the side of the terrorists," said Peter Gadiel, whose son, James, was killed at the World Trade Center on 9/11. "Many of these people have been released and been right back killing, right back at their terrorist work again."So tell me, PA-12; is the pork that Jihad Jack Murtha brings home really worth it?
