"Some Chinese Muslim detainees long cleared for release from the prison camps at Guantánamo Bay could be released in the United States, Attorney General Eric Holder said Wednesday.
During an interview with reporters, Holder was asked whether members of a group of Uighurs at the U.S. military detention facility in Cuba could be released on American soil.
''I don't know. We're trying to come up with places for them,'' Holder said.
He added later: ``The possibility exists.''
The United States has cleared 17 of the Uighurs for release from Guantánamo, but insists it will not hand them over to China because the Uighurs fear they will be tortured."
How about placing all Guantanamo detainees released into the United States in group homes in the Congressional districts of those members of Congress and governors who urged the closure of Guantanamo? Maybe even right next door to their homes? Just a suggestion.
