Skelton voices concern over Guantanamo prisoners at Leavenworth

Rep. Ike Skelton, D-Mo., long has supported President Obama's order to close Guantanamo. But on Monday he joined opponents to closing Guantanamo in objecting to moving prisoners to Fort Leavenworth, Kan. Skelton warned that the presence of Guantanamo prisoners might discourage Muslim countries from sending their officers to Fort Leavenworth for training.
