"It is the common fate of the indolent to see their rights become a prey to the active. The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime and the punishment of his guilt." -- JP Curran, 1790

H.R. 794 - Rep. Doug Lamborn's Current Bill

Rep. Doug Lamborn (R CO-5) is sponsoring H.R. 794 "to prohibit the use of funds to transfer enemy combatants detained by the United States at Naval Station Guantanamo Bay, Cuba to the Florence Federal Correctional Complex in Colorado, or to construct facilities for such enemy combatants at such location."

Although I agree with the gist of this bill, I believe the bill should be amended so that the words "Florence Federal Correctional Complex in Colorado" are stricken from the language and replaced with "any land or territory of the United States." What do you say, Congressman? How about expanding the scope? I believe you would win some support from a large majority of the states, and it may pre-empt a legal nightmare for this nation's taxpayers thanks to the Obama Administration's weak policies on terrorism.
