Sen. Brownback Responds to Idea of Moving Enemy Combatants to Ft. Leavenworth

Senator Sam Brownback is raising his concern over suggestions that enemy combatants may be relocated to Fort Leavenworth.

Today the senator spoke at a Senate Judiciary Subcommittee hearing considering the idea of moving detainees from Guantanamo Bay to Kansas.

He said "I have toured the facilities at Fort Leavenworth, and know it is not equipped to handle these non-military detainees."

He went on to say the fort "does not have the ability to house and feed the large number of personnel necessary to secure a detainee population."
