Duncan Hunter lies about Dems and scares Americans

Those damn Democrats. They've got people scared.
With pressure to shut down the Guantanamo prison mounting, the House Armed Services Committee this week released the names of 17 U.S. bases that could house suspected terrorists...

U.S. Rep. Jeff Miller, R-Chumuckla, said Friday he opposed the transfer of any Guantanamo prisoners to the U.S.

"It's obvious some in Congress want to bring these detainees to the American shore," he said. "I'm going to do everything I can to keep that from happening."

"We'll definitely be a target," said Tracy Webb, 37, of Myrtle Grove. "It's really scary."

Others agreed.

"We're already a target here," said Ann Sullivan, 56, of Pensacola. "This is just going to make it worse."
You see, 17 different military communities were informed last week that they were being targeted by Democrats to house suspects currently held in Guantanamo if the facility is shut down. Across the country, people in those communities are shaking in their boots at the thought of having "darn dangerous" men in their towns.

But Democrats are planning no such thing. The whole thing is a lie, put forward by Republican congressman and presidential candidate Duncan Hunter. As the Army Times writes:
A list of 17 domestic military bases at which suspected terrorists might be housed if a U.S. military prison in Cuba closes, which was released Friday by a senior House Republican, is not based on any recommendations from Democrats.

Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., used the list last week to alert communities that Democrats purportedly wanted to move dangerous prisoners into their area. A March 29 statement from Hunter, the former armed services committee chairman, said, “Congressional Democrats listed the following American communities as potential relocation points for terror suspects held at Guantanamo Bay.”

But Hunter’s own staff helped to write the original memo, (Loren Dealy, the House Armed Services Committee press secretary) said.
Will it be possible to find a single reporter who will ask Duncan Hunter why he thinks that he needs to lie about Democrats and scare Americans to get to the White House?

OT

I hope you don't mind an off-topic comment, but I think this is important: There is a great post on The Carpetbagger Report from a few days ago about the mainstream media's (specifically Time magazine's) ignoring the prosecutor purge scandal.

http://www.thecarpetbaggerreport.com/archives/10367.html


What explains the failure of the mainstream media to cover the purge scandal for so long, and so many other scandals? Do you think somebody just set up newspaper editors to cheat on their wives, and threatened to tell if the editors wouldn’t play ball when they come back some day and ask for something?

It wouldn’t be that hard to do, when you think about it. People wouldn’t talk about it.
