Bob Barr backs Gitmo move…

2008 Libertarian Presidential candidate Bob Barr is backing the move of Guantanamo Bay prisoners to a prison in Illinois. Jordan Fabian writes on that Barr signed on to a letter with American Conservative Union founder David Keene and Americans for Tax Reform President Grover Norquist saying the move makes sense.

The letter includes, “The scaremongering about (an increased terror threat) should stop… It makes sense for the community, which will benefit from the related employment and has absolutely no reason to fear that prisoners will escape or be released into their communities… But most of all it makes sense for America because it is a critical link in the process of closing Guantanamo and getting this country back to using its tried and true, constitutionally sound institutions.
