Senator Sam Brownback is expressing concern over a House Bill that would move Guantanamo Bay enemy combatants to Fort Leavenworth, Kansas.

The bill was introduced by Congressman Harry Brown.

Brownback says he shares Brown's concerns about putting detainees in medium security facilities near population areas, but they disagree whether Fort Leavenworth fits that description.

Brownback says the disciplinary barracks at Fort Leavenworth are primarily a medium security facility with very limited space for maximum security prisoners.

He also says it could endanger officers attending the posts' command and general staff college.
