WaPo Agrees; Hardin, MT Answers

"Supermax Prisons in U.S. Already Hold Terrorists"

A great article that states what is logical but for some reason has become completely, mind-bogglingly difficult to understand.

An interesting blurb towards the end: "Still, one economically pressed community in Montana is bucking the trend of 'not in my back yard.' Some residents in Hardin are volunteering to open their unused, 464-bed Two Rivers Regional Detention Facility to the detainees from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The City Council recently passed a resolution in support.

But Sen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.) put his foot down. 'We're not going to bring al-Qaeda to Big Sky Country -- no way, not on my watch,' he told Time magazine this month. "

I can understand a big-government pro-bureaucracy Democrat thwarting the will of a local City Council (tongue-->cheek), but what leg is at-large Republican Rep. Denny Rehberg standing on? A spokeswoman in his Washington office told me the Congressman supports enhancing the usage of the sparsely populated, waste-of-taxpayer-money Two Rivers facility but paradoxically does not support the transfer of alleged terrorists (criminals) anywhere into Montana. Hmmm...
