Going around congress, using money he doesn't have.....


he Obama administration plans to buy an Illinois prison that at one point was considered for housing Guantanamo prisoners -- with Republican lawmakers now claiming the purchase would open the door for ultimately carrying out the Guantanamo transfer.

Administration officials, though, denied that they were looking for a new home for Guantanamo inmates.

Officials insisted Guantanamo detainees would not be coming to Illinois.

Shell game....move others to IL....then move the Gitmo terrorists, the worst of the US prisons not in IL.....

then after Obama has more 'flexibility'....move them all to the SuperMax in IL.

Remember, the islamos are rioting because there are prisoners in Gitmo. Don't you see all the signs held up at the riots? "Close Gitmo" or else?

Just think of all those high paying UNION JOBS at the prison in IL!....more money for his homies in IL. More free phones, and of course, with several hundred employees, the prison will cough up big campaign contributions.

TIme to end this nonsense.
