(Washington) - Pete Hoekstra is continuing his campaign against bringing terror suspects to American soil. The Holland Republican, ranking minority member of the House Intelligence Committee, is joining a number of his Congressional colleagues and former Assistant Federal Attorney Andrew McCarthy, the prosecutor in the first World Trade Center terrorist attack, at a press briefing in front of the U.S. Supreme Court Building in Washington today. They are voicing their disapproval of bringing Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and other suspects into this country, either for trial or incarceration. Saying that the threat is real, Hoekstra believes that it’s very, very problematic for the White House to continue this line of thinking. The President pledged to close Guantanamo Bay’s prison during last year’s campaign, but the Congressman wouldn’t hold it against Mr. Obama if he went back on his word on this matter. Hoekstra believes that there is a changing sentiment on this issue in the Administration, citing Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, who now uses the term “acts of terrorism” instead of “man-made disasters,” as she had when she first took office. Hoekstra made his remarks in an exclusive interview with WHTC/WYVN News Director Gary Stevens. -Gary Stevens, WHTC/WYVN News
