Congressman Gresham Barrett says he has learned that the Obama Administration plans to transfer up to 10 suspected terrorists from Guantanamo Bay to the Naval Brig in Charleston.
Barrett says that news is deeply disturbing and jeopardizes the safety and security of South Carolinians and other Americans. He’s calling on Governor Mark Sanford to try to stop the transfer.
Barrett wants Sanford to pursue legal action if necessary.
Low Country Congressman Henry Brown is an original co-sponsor of the Keep Terrorists Out of America Act. The Republican says that nine months after issuing his executive order to close GITMO, the President has yet to lay out a clear plan for the dangerous suspects. Brown says he is passionate about keeping the suspects out of the Charleston-area facility.
