Transcript of Rand Paul flip-flop on terrorist detainees (at the KY Association of Counties forum this morning):
RP: "I want to be just very explicit about this. I'm opposed to
closing down Guantanamo bay, I'm opposed to trying them in civil
court, and I'm in favor of military tribunals."
TG: "Then I guess you'll have to change your webpage?"
RP: "Learn to read!"
--Grayson also posts a link on his website of the full release that includes quotes from the Alex Jones Show, Rand's website, and a Rand speech on youtube.
Excerpt from website:
Rand Paul proved today at the Kentucky Association of Counties forum that he is practiced in the Washington art of flip-flopping when he could not provide a straight answer on the issue of protecting America's national security.
Rand Paul has previously endorsed the Obama Administration policy of bringing the most dangerous terrorists on Earth to U.S. soil, including alleged 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and several co-conspirators. Paul and Obama want to close the $200 million detention facility at Guantanamo Bay and prosecute these terrorists in civilian courts.
"While he had difficulty providing a straight answer today, Paul's previous remarks supporting the Obama policy of closing Guantanamo and bringing the world's most dangerous terrorists to the U.S. have been as consistent as they are misguided," said Grayson campaign manager Nate Hodson.
Rand Paul on terrorist detainees:
" ... it's kind of unclear whether these people are guilty, not guilty ... So I really think deportation or sending them back to their country of origin might be the best way to go. And none of it's fair, because some of them have been held years and years ..." - Alex Jones Show, 5/21/09.
Rand Paul "couldn't agree more" with those who believe Guantanamo has "significantly damaged the reputation of the United States" and who want to "see it shut down." - Rand Paul website post, 5/25/09.
"I think they should mostly be sent back to their country of origin or to tell you the truth I'd drop them back off into battle ... you're unclear, drop 'em off back into Afghanistan. It'd take them a while to get back over here." - YouTube video of Rand Paul speaking in Paducah, KY, 5/8/09.
