Kansas Attorney General, Other Top Prosectors: Don't Send Us Gitmo Detainees

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Top prosecutors in three states reportedly being assessed as potential future homes for Guantanamo Bay detainees are imploring the Obama administration not to send the prisoners to their states. Attorneys general from Colorado, Kansas and South Carolina on Wednesday wrote to President Barack Obama, telling him that bringing detainees to their areas "will create imminent danger" and make "targets" out of the communities where they are placed. A Defense Department team recently finished surveying seven sites in Colorado, South Carolina and Kansas that could be the next address for some of the 112 detainees currently housed at Guantanamo Bay. Closing the detention center has been a top priority for Obama. The effort has faced hurdles, including opposition among both Republicans and Democrats in Congress. The prosecutors are giving the administration until December 4 to respond.
