US judge orders Chinese Muslims' release from Guantanamo


news.yahoo.com

A US federal judge on Tuesday ordered the release into the United States of a group of Chinese Muslims once suspected of terrorism who are being held in Guantanamo Bay prison, a court official told AFP.

The US government declared the group of 17 Uighurs to no longer be "enemy combatants" this year but had maintained it could continue to hold them in Guantanamo if no other country accepted them.

China has urged the US to repatriate the "terrorist suspects," but Washington has resisted due to fears the group would be tortured upon return.

The article goes onto mention that "human rights groups had campaigned against their continued detention."

I wonder where these freemen will end up. And what exactly were the intentions of the Chinese government that "urged" their return to the land of Mao and of Tao.

And Mac, for that matter.

Pending further review, I cannot recall a group of detainees released into the American population. Has anyone else?

Maybe this is just too far outside the range of the economic meltdown and how it does and will affect each of us, but given China's being on the other side, I do and don't wonder why the freed have been loosed upon the American public.

And for one of these men, it really could have been worse.

Score one, no, seventeen for Uighur-American relations.

Naw. People are people, deltaboy. They wound up on the wrong side of life, either way.
