Six Guantanamo Detainees Shipped Out

Six Chinese Muslims who had been detained at Guantanamo Bay arrived Sunday in Palau, the tiny Pacific island, where they have been permanently resettled, according to the Associated Press. "These men want nothing more than to live peaceful, productive lives in a free, democratic nation safe from oppression by the Chinese," a lawyer said. "Thanks to Palau, which has graciously offered them a temporary home, they now have that chance." The Pentagon determined that the men, part of the minority group known as Uighurs, were not "enemy combatants." Four others were moved to Bermuda this year, causing controversy on that island.
