There Goes The Neighborhood

But perhaps not just yet:

(Washington, DC) -- Local Republican leaders are trying to keep suspected terrorists out of Virginia. Congressman Frank Wolf says detainees from Guantanamo Bay could end up in Alexandria, and if they're not formally charged with a crime, they could be released. Congressman Wolf and other GOP leaders introduced the Keep Terrorists Out of America Act yesterday. Wolf has also written a letter to President Obama, asking him to declassify all intelligence regarding terror suspects coming to America.

In fact, there are quite a few Donks in Congress pretty riled up over this business as well. Normally, I'm not a great fan of the Not In My Back Yard principle, but here NIMBY might actually be the force that saves us from a move of truly monumental idiocy.

There is also a rumor of some Gitmo detainees coming to the brig at Quantico Marine Base in Prince William County. Which has I-95, US RTE 1 and a major rail line running through the base.

Someone please tell the One to put his Thinking Cap on!
