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

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

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.

"Rand might turn out to be a great Senator in spite of himself"

Rand Paul wouldn't turn into a Senator AT ALL if he said he was in favor of closing down Gitmo and bringing them all to America.


I don't agree with this.

My only hope is that's one of those campaign statements that he'll reconsider later.

Wow! Blessings )o(

~double take~

Say what?


this seriously needs discussion.

Well Duh

They're two seperate individuals. My father is a democrat; doesn't mean I am one.

That's true

A lot of people have had wool pulled over their eyes, myself included to a certain extent.

they got to him. Not trying

they got to him. Not trying them here is one thing, but KEEPING GUANTANAMO OPEN?!?!?!?!?!

At a candidates forum today...

Trey sent out a press release before hand claiming Rand was for bringing these clowns up and trying them here. Of course Rand refuted this at the candidates forum and released this on his website.

After all of Trey's recent flub ups he's reaching deep just to try to find something ANYTHING on Rand. I guess he's going to try to claim somehow that Rand is pro-terrorist or something. Whatever.

Today I had a member of my local GOP Committee tell me that he feels Rand's going to win this race because he's simply outworking Trey and that his opinion is shared by several on the committee. This was a complete surprise to me as it was unsolicited and I felt certain that this individual was a Trey supporter. Thing is, I've been hearing the same thing from several other former Trey supporters recently.

Right now as much as anything else, Rand needs our prayers.

One does not have to be "pro-terrorist" to know why...

...Guantanamo and these ~military tribunals~ are wrong.

You're right. Man, oh man, does Rand need our prayers.
