Well, it finally happened. The terrorists at Guantanamo Bay are going to a prison at Thomson, Illinois. In the words of Rep. Donald Manzullo (IL-16), "Gitmo is not being closed. They're just moving it..."
A lot has been said about how no one has ever escaped from a supermax prison such as Thomson will be. But, that's not even an issue. I believe these terrorists are not going to be able to tunnel out.
The real issue is, by moving these guys to the mainland, their custody moves from the military to the purview of the civilian courts. And, I am not sure our court system is able to deal with the situation.
So, rather than finding a way to break out, some of these terrorists may be invited to walk out through the front gate.
