    Military planners are considering housing Haitian refugees at "Camp Justice," the guest quarters for media, U.S. officials and military commissioners at Guantanamo Bay detention facility, after a devastating earthquake in Haiti Tuesday afternoon left thousands homeless.

    "It's a resource that's available if we need to take advantage of it for various reasons," Gen. Douglas Fraser, head of the U.S. Southern Command, told reporters Wednesday. "We're looking across the region to just understand what the possibilities are there."

    Two senior Defense Department officials told Fox News on Wednesday that no final determination has been made since the military is still in its "assessment" mode, but it is a possibility.

    "We are certainly keeping that option open," one official said.

    Guantanamo Bay isn't fit for terrorists,, and they are going to put refugees there? That's just pure stupid.

    It's one place, we would need a lot more space. I guess if I were a Haitian I could acclimate better at Gitmo than a military base in North Dakota...brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!

    But we have many empty bases. We need to open them up, dust them off and airlift the people out of there.

    Yes, I know what you are saying. It's something along the lines of, "I'm a total hack and will take something as benign as this in the wake of more than 100,000 dead and try to twist it and make it political. Even if my point makes ZERO sense so long as it sounds bad for the DUmmies."

    You're a retard, Willow. These refugees would be temporarily housed at GITMO for humanitarian reasons and not held there for years against their will with a trial, etc. There's a massive difference. I can't believe it even has to be pointed out. Fuck, you're so partisan it's distgusting.

    has nothing to do with the facility, or the point I was trying to make. the facility is the best prison environment on the planet.. or would you prefer Illinois?
