Uighur Detainees May Be Released Inside U.S.
Hill sources tell me that Congressional leaders were told today that Guantanamo detainees from China - the Uighurs - are likely to soon be released into the United States, most likely to the Virginia suburbs. These notifications follow this front page story today in the Los Angeles Times.
Stephanopoulos quotes Penatagon sources as saying it's not a done deal, just a "toe in the water." Our prior coverage of the Uighurs is assembled here.
As for the remaining detainees, a jail in Montana is considering making an offer to house them. The effort has received approval from the City Council.
