Congressman Wants Gitmo Moved to Supreme Court

Breaking News

You can practically see the sarcasm dripping off the wording in this bill US Rep. Louis Gohmert of Tyler filed last week proposing a new location for Guantanamo Bay.

In light of the US Supreme Court's recent ruling that Gitmo detainees are protected by the U.S. Constitution’s habeas corpus protections, Gohmert wants to move the controversial jail to the Supreme Court grounds, "confined by adequate fencing."

"There can be no better way for the United States Supreme Court to exercise its new self-appointed war powers than to house the prisoners whom it has taken a greater role in overseeing," Gohmert writes.
