Guantanamo Naval Base has been ordered to close the detention center that is being used to house suspected terrorists, and to conduct military tribunal trials of the suspects. Presumably the base, located on a rented chunk of Cuba, was ideal because an argument could be made that its location obviated the need to give the prisoners the rights that they would have had they been housed on US territory. Oddly, they were given the same rights that most political prisoners in Cuba get. That should have made the terrorists quite happy because they got almost the same rights that they would have given Americans had they been captured in their part of the world.
Now, the liberal President Obama wants those accused terrorists housed on American territory. Rumors abound concerning considered locations. All are near population areas accessible to rescue and rapid retrieval by terrorist friends/allies. They are also near right wing fanatics who might attempt to assassinate them before trial. Housing on American territory would certainly reduce the chance for prisoner abuse by torture.
I think that the conservative approach would be to house the prisoners on American territory to appease the liberals. There is a spacious island that has the odd distinction of being the westernmost point relative to the rest of the United States, but is geographically the easternmost. The island of Attu in the Aleutian chain (Alaska) consists of 344.71 square miles. It has a US 2000 census of 20 people. All are employed at the United States Coast Guard LORAN station. This tiny military facility could be the starting point for construction of the prison unit. The nature and size of the population would just about eliminate the NIMBY (Not In My Back Yard) phenomenon.
