Senator Pat Roberts joined colleague Sam Brownback in speaking out against moving detainees from Guantanamo Bay to Ft. Leavenworth.
President Barack Obama signed an executive order Thursday calling for the military prison to be closed within one year.
Senator Roberts says he is strongly opposed to any suggestion to relocate terrorists from Gitmo to Ft. Leavenworth. Congressman Lynn Jenkins shared similar thoughts, stating in a news release Thursday that while it is still unclear where detainees will be moved, they do not belong at Ft. Leavenworth, KS.
