The 2008 convention was held at [[Invesco Field]] in Denver [[Colorado]]. Denver officials had constructed a secret jail to house those that would misbehave in the Mile High City when the Democrats attend their convention. The makeshift holding center, dubbed "Gitmo on the Platte" by activists, contains barbed wire fencing and signs warning of stun gun use. The Steele Street warehouse was designed to process 60 arrestees per hour. <ref>[ City defends 'secret jail' built for DNC]</ref>
Ingrid Mattson, president of the [[Islamic Society of North America]], spoke at a prayer service at the convention. Hidden from the public because nobody debated it at the time, the group has ties to funding [[Hamas]] terrorists and the facts were well known July 2008.
