Here is my response to the Campaign Manager

RandPaul2010.com is your official campaign website. The original URL was:
www.randpaul2010.com/2009/05/chief-of-the-u-s-military-shut-...

The question is a simple one. Does Rand Paul support Gitmo or not? Before yesterday HE said:

" ... 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.

"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.

Now on the website the article related to Rand’s position on Gitmo is entitled: “Try Convict and Lock Up Terrorists in Guantanamo”

As you can see from my previous email exchange with Mr. Hightower attached hereto, Mr. Hightower stated that the errant web posting was the fault of a campaign staffer. Although the web post may not have been read by Rand Paul, Paul did say those words cited above. Rand Paul didn’t support Gitmo before he supported it.

I really don’t care to debate Gitmo with you or Rand, although you should read the 14th Amendment’s incorporation for the Bill of Rights to persons, not citizens. I am really no longer interested to know what Paul’s views are on the matter. I cannot support a candidate that won’t take responsibility for his words and instead shifts blame to campaign staffers or “enthusiasts.” Paul should be responsible for what come out of his mouth.
