The Uighurs imprisoned by the US : where is the rule of law? where justice?

Andy Worthington says...

There’s a great editorial about the Uighurs in the Washington Post today (June 6, 2009) here

This is the final paragraph:

“Mr. Obama did not create the mess that is the Guantanamo prison, but the mess is now his to clean up. If he does not act soon to grant at least some Uighurs a home in the United States, then the Supreme Court should step in to determine whether the judicial branch has any legitimate role to play in this extraordinary and extraordinarily disturbing matter. One day of wrongful imprisonment is unfortunate; years of knowingly wrongful incarceration is an abomination that cannot be tolerated if the rule of law and justice are to have any meaning.”
