Update on Chinese Uighurs at Guantanamo

The Los Angeles Times editorial board weighs in on the case of five Chinese Uighurs being held at Guantanamo despite being cleared for release; their appeal was declined by the Supreme Court this week.

The editorial argues that “[t]he United States has a moral obligation to accommodate the Uighurs, whom the government acknowledges are victims of mistaken identity….The Uighurs’ hopes now rest with Congress, which needs to recognize that not every detainee at Guantanamo is an enemy of the United States; some are long-suffering victims of American neglect.”
