Posted on 11/28/2012 4:46:40 PM PST by jazusamo
The Democratic chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence committee has commissioned a federal report to identify prison facilities in the U.S. that are suitable for housing Guantanamo detainees, a document exclusively reviewed by Fox News shows.
In the internal document, the Government Accountability Office refers to Source of Work: Ms. Dianne Feinstein, Chair, Select Committee on Intelligence, U.S. Senate and lists the Gist of Work as an investigation into whether domestic facilities could house the approximately 170 detainees remaining at the controversial facility in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
Two hours after Fox News' inquiry about the report, Feinstein's office posted the report online and released a statement confirming that the California senator thinks the Obama administration's controversial plan to relocate detainees to the United States is a viable option.
This report demonstrates that if the political will exists, we could finally close Guantanamo without imperiling our national security, Feinstein said. The GAO report makes clear that numerous prisons exist inside the United States -- operated by both the Department of Defense and the Department of Justicecapable of holding the 166 detainees who remain at Guantanamo in an environment that meets the security requirements.

No federal taxpayer money an be used.
put them in San Francisco, right next to Diane,it would cost a lot to re decorate a prison to cater to all the rag heads needs,but if difi wants them she can have them..
Maybe the feds can put them up at Feinstein and Pelosi’s houses.
IF I was a terrorist sitting on my butt at Gitmo I’d be sweating blood bullets over the possibility of being transfered to a prison in the U.S. and being surrounded by American criminals who had nothing better to do all day than figure out some way to get at me and do things to my body that no one has ever heard of and would never believe possible.
Absolutely...Gitmo is the ideal place for them not considering six feet under ground.
Bet she's doing this thinking California needs another federal bailout for their prison system.
How about we put them in the White House where they will find a very compatible warden.
Yep, Obama could fire his staff and the replacements would possibly be a benefit to the country.
Sure....give the terrorists some more targets.
And right next door is a thread about Egypt sentencing Americans to death.
How mixed up we are.
We put the worst enemies of the U.S. up in the Guantanamo Plaza Hotel, while they sentence people to death for insulting their moon god.
Someday, Lord willing, we’ll get back to old-school justice, put on our big boy pants and take care of business.
Wonder how much the duo figure they could get from federal "detention centers."

This study has already been done in the Bush administration. It recommended a prison facility in Kansas or Kentucky if memory serves me correctly. Obama could have closed Gitmo years ago...
As I remember Obama and Holder were trying to close Gitmo but didn't have much luck.
House them in Pacific Heights . . . and Castro
That’s right, Dianne. Make America MORE OF A TARGET than it already is. Another liberal female gone senile.
or in the belly of JAWS.
I don’t think 0bama would EVER house the GITMO detainees at the prison in Illinois. He’s reserving THAT prison for Tea Party members.
Plenty. Kal-ee-FORN-ya here we come!!
They better hurry up if Obama wants to hold a ceremony on the beach handing over the keys to Fidel.
I would agree...life in Gitmo is better than life in a US prison. But the game here...is to force civilian judges and Constitutional law into the system. Once you hint of torture....each client will be released.
To #5, Ed Story:
To quote Harvey Korman in “Blazing Saddles”, KINKY!
I don’t know how they do it, but the detainees at GITMO seem to get updated information constantly. We wouldn’t have gotten Osama Ben Laden if a GITMO detainee hadn’t been manipulated into spilling his guts.
Now Diane wants these detainees disbursed into the domestic prison population.
And when the resultant trials take place, they’ll be sources of information related to our methods, sources, international contacts, and sympathizers.
Diane sometimes actually gets military issues right. (Don’t ask me how.) Here I think she’s acting the part of a fool.
I totally disagree with her.
And with ‘The One’ in the White Hut, her recommendations to do exactly what Obama wanted, will come to pass.
Once again, we have the Obama administration and fellow travelers fronting for the interest of those who wish to destroy us.
The question to be asked is why they want to move them from A to B?. IMO they want these terrorists to have the same rights as americans and establosh precedece. They want open borders and one world everything. That is the only rational explanation I can fathom.
Exactly right about the terrorists locked up and Feinstein.
The turkeys in Gitmo have a wealth of information already and if they hit the civilian courts here they’ll spill much of our classified info themselves or through their attorneys.
I suspect that wouldn’t bother ‘The Won’ in the least if it came to pass.
I believe Obama and Holder still want them tried in the federal courts and if that happens many if not most will walk, and that’s what they want.
He was all for it before he won the 2008 election. I’m shocked he didn’t do it during his first term.
He’s definitely on board. We are after all being so unfair to the people at GITMO. /s
We’ll just see how long it is before one of our courts is attacked to free terrorists.
There are no places in the US of A suitable for housing those hornets.
DDT their asses and be done with it....
Maybe but I am not so sure they care one way or the other what happens to these pawns. No there is something else going on that's bigger. It's as if they are trying to break down this notion that these is a legal difference between Americans and foreigners. It's like they want to start moving us along a path towards their one-world open borders crap. I may be all wet too. I just don't like it and smell a bigger rat than these 140 terrorists.
How many more surprises will we hear bout now that the election is over?
IF I was a terrorist sitting on my butt at Gitmo Id be sweating blood bullets over the possibility of being transfered to a prison in the U.S. and being surrounded by American criminals who had nothing better to do all day than figure out some way to get at me and do things to my body that no one has ever heard of and would never believe possible.
Problem is....there are Islamists currently in our prisons indoctrinating other prisoners.
Perhaps at the Presidio?
Yup, I vote Oakland, CA.

This are the most recruitable people; people who lack moral principals - who are either too greedy or too, uh, suffer from self-importance, uh, they feel that they matter a lot. Uh, these are the people who KGB wanted very much to recruit. "--KGB Defector Yuri Bezmenov--Soviet Subversion of the Free Press (Ideological subversion, Destabilization, CRISIS - and the KGB)
She is a dumb one.
You nailed it. Holder's law firm has defended more terrorists pro bono than any other law firm. We're funding Gitmo from the treasury - it would probably be cheaper to close Gitmo. The biggest problem would be bringing foreign combatants into our civilian penal / legal system.
This is nothing but a way to give them access to the U courts in an attempt to free them.
Alcatraz just needs new locks on the doors.
Otherwise, it’s still a better housing area than the shiite-hole where these vermin come from.
If they think the heat in Cuba is bad, wait until they spend summer on San Fran Bay...grab a sweater on the way to your cell.
She’ll have to first get around John McCain and the law passed by Congress, according to McCain on Greta last night.
Gee, would this be a good spot for them?
Thank you, onyx...I just viewed it and McCain sounded pretty definite and positve, Good News.
For anyone wishing to see it here’s the link to video, go to 7:50 minutes.
0bama and his idiot entourage want to bring radical muzzies to the US prisons where they will find fertile ground for converts to radical islam. Afterwards, every time a prisoner is paroled or released, a new sleeper cell will spring up. As long as the al queda and taliban detainees are herded together at GITMO, they will be unable to spread their terrorist philosophy.
I am confused. I heard a video of Rand Paul praising Feinstein on her ammendment and later read he is against bringing the gitmo detainees to the USA. Yes, up popped other articles stating the opposite. How can he praise her ammendment and oppose bringing them to America?
Could the praise for Feinstein from Paul have been on this amendment?
