Keep America Safe Releases Mini-Documentary The People of Standish

WASHINGTON, DC (November 19, 2009) - Today Keep America Safe released the mini-documentary, "The People of Standish. Standish is home to Standish Max, one of the sites being considered by the Obama administration to house the terrorists now being safely detained at Guantanamo Bay. The people of Standish are rallying and speaking out against this administrations ill-considered and dangerous proposal -- but don't take it from us, listen to them.

The recent news that the Obama administration is now considering the Thomson Correctional Center in Thomson, IL, as a possible site for housing the remaining detainees at Guantanamo Bay makes four such potential sites on American soil--that is if you don't consider the Metropolitan Correctional Facility in New York City.

This latest addition to the growing list of potential host prisons shows that the administration is still committed to its perilous plan to close Gitmo and bring al Qaeda trained terrorists to American soil. Housing and trying these war criminals in the civilian criminal system rewards these terrorists for their horrifying acts and puts American citizens in greater danger.

The most pressing logistical problem confronting the administration on this issue is not a lack of available prison space--it is finding a community willing to accept the world's most dangerous war criminals and to buy into disingenuous claims of economic stimulus and local job growth.

President Obama and his attorney general have refused to heed the advice of national security experts, elected officials, and most importantly the citizens of these communities. Keep America Safe hears the concerns of the citizens of these towns and their message is clear: keep Gitmo's terrorists off US soil.
