Rand Paul: Try, Convict and Lock Up Terrorists In Guantanamo

• Rand Paul

For Immediate Release
November 19, 2009

BOWLING GREEN, KENTUCKY – Leading United States Senate candidate Rand Paul today criticized the Obama administration’s decision to close the Guantanamo Bay detention center and try terrorism suspects in United States Civil Courts.

“Foreign terrorists do not deserve the protections of our Constitution,” said Dr. Paul. “These thugs should stand before military tribunals and be kept off American soil. I will always fight to keep Kentucky safe and that starts with cracking down on our enemies.”

Dr. Paul believes in strong national defense and thinks military spending should be our country’s top budget priority. He has also called for a Constitutional declaration of war with Afghanistan.

Do you think Dr. Ron will make a comment about Dr. Rand?

Bad seed from a good tree. How totally disappointing. Who could have guessed that Ron Paul's son is a war-loving psychopath? It's not hard to find out that many, if not most of those in Guantanomo are not guilty, but victims. I wonder what Ron thinks about his son's love for the War Machine. Makes me want to puke.

 I couldn't agree more.  There's no reason why Bush, Cheney, at al shouldn't be convicted, locked up and worked over in Guantanamo.

 WTF?  If he only said it to placate the people...why'd he say anything at all?   The most logical assumption is that Rand really does believe this, it may just be a reflection of how he "feels".  If so, that apple fell far away from the tree.....sigh.
