WASHINGTON, D.C.—Congresswoman Kay Granger (TX-12) released the following statement after the Wall Street Journal reported this morning comments made by Attorney General Eric Holder that some Guantanamo detainees could be released inside the United States:

“This is simply outrageous and unacceptable.  The fact that the Attorney General would even suggest some Guantanamo detainees could be released into the United States should terrify all of us.  The combatants remaining in Guantanamo are some of the most hardened terrorists in the world who want to harm innocent Americans.  Under no circumstances should they be released on American soil.  The Administration must reject this suggestion immediately.”
