Several Guantanamo Bay detainees to be released in Washington, D.C., suburbs, say sources
NY Daily News ^ | May 8, 2009 | JAMES GORDON MEEK

WASHINGTON - A large federal security operation is in place to keep tabs on several Guantanamo Bay inmates who may soon be released in Virginia, the Daily News has learned.

A half-dozen ethnic Chinese detainees known as Uyghurs will be flown by marshals from the U.S. naval base in Cuba to live in the Washington suburbs if lingering legal, logistical and political problems are ironed out, government officials said Thursday.

Some lawmakers and counter-terror officials worry about terrorists living next door. Northern Virginia was chosen because it has an Uyghur Muslim community that could help the ex-prisoners adjust.

“Northern Virginia was chosen because it has an Uyghur Muslim community that could help the ex-prisoners adjust.”

This is insane. If the Republican's dont hang this issue on every single RAT, especially on the Sunday shows this weekend, than all is truly lost.

Is it too much to ask for a lud and clear, coordinated response from our side?

Northern Virginia was chosen because it has an Uyghur Muslim community that could help the ex-prisoners adjust murder countless American citizens so that MaoBama can replace them with illegan alien Democrat voters, all the while blaming the attacks on veterans, pro-lifers, patriots, and the Boy Scouts.

Fixed.

If I didn't know any better, I would think that the Obama Administration is setting about purposely to undermine our economic system, criminalize policy differences, eviscerate our military and intelligence services, and assist the aims of our overseas enemies.

As it happens: I don't know any better.

A half-dozen ethnic Chinese detainees known as Uyghurs

In addition to the many other reasons to highlight the inanity of this action is the fact that it is a race-based test drive of the release policy.

Start out by dumping a few Chinese muslims on the streets. Gauge the reaction from the media and the people, see how they Chinese muslims mingle.

Can't jump right into this stupidity with a bunch of Yemenis or Pakis.
