MITT ROMNEY WANTS TO DOUBLE THE SIZE OF GITMO BECAUSE HE KNOWS IT IS AN MK ULTRA OPERATION!
Mitt Romney - Guantanamo Bayhttp://www.thepoliticalguide.com/Profiles/Governor/Massachusetts/Mitt_Romney/views/Guantanamo_Bay/Summary
Governor Romney is a strong supporter of the use of the Guantanamo Bay facility to hold prisoners, the use of enhanced interrogation techniques, and the denial of habeas corpus and other legal rights to prisoners. He does not support civilian trials for prisoners such as KSM.
During the Presidential debate in South Carolina, Governor Romney stated that he wanted prisoners held in Guantanamo, and that doubling the size of the facility could be justified if the need existed. When asked about whether or not the CIA should torture a prisoner in a "ticking time bomb" scenario, Governor Romney noted that it was the President and not the CIA that would make this decision and that he supported enhanced interrogation but not torture.
In another presidential debate, Governor Romney stated that he would not specify openly if techniques such as waterboarding were torture. He stated again that Guantanamo Bay was the appropriate place for detainees and not in a civilian jail with lawyers. This support for the use of Guantanamo was continued in campaign stops in which he stated that the facility at GITMO was the appropriate and legal place for detainees such as KSM. When President Obama finally recanted his push to hold civilian trials for KSM, Governor Romney stated that President Obama was naive for attempting to hold such a trial in a civilian court. South Carolina Debate
In May of 2007, Governor Romney participated in the first South Carolina Presidential debate. When asked about Guantanamo Bay, expressed support for holding detainees there, and support for not allowing habeas corpus rights.
MR. HUME: Governor Romney, I'd like to draw you out on this.
MR. ROMNEY: Yeah, first of all, let's make sure that we understand that the key in electing the next president is to find somebody who will make sure that that scenario doesn't ever happen, and the key to that is prevention.
We've all spent a lot of time talking about what happens after the bomb goes off. The real question is, how do you prevent the bomb from going off? And that's what I spent my time doing as a governor over the last four years, and serving on the Homeland Security Advisory Council. And that means intelligence and counterterrorism.
Now we're going to -- you said the person's going to be in Guantanamo. I'm glad they're at Guantanamo. I don't want them on our soil. I want them on Guantanamo, where they don't get the access to lawyers they get when they're on our soil. I don't want them in our prisons. I want them there.
Some people have said, we ought to close Guantanamo. My view is, we ought to double Guantanamo.
We ought to make sure that the terrorists -- (applause) -- and there's no question but that in a setting like that where you have a ticking bomb that the president of the United States -- not the CIA interrogator, the president of the United States -- has to make the call. And enhanced interrogation techniques have to be used -- not torture but enhanced interrogation techniques, yes. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I0U9k7Jj_40
