Good news: Obama to release Chinese Muslim Gitmo detainees into U.S.

Would now be a good time to tell you we’re also funding a Somali government that contains a guy who’s been an officially designated terrorist since shortly after 9/11?

No. No, we’ll save that for another day.

The Obama administration is preparing to admit into the United States as many as seven Chinese Muslims who have been imprisoned at Guantanamo Bay in the first release of any of the detainees into this country, according to current and former U.S. officials…

The Uighurs were sent to Guantanamo in 2002 after being captured in Pakistan. Before that, they had gravitated to Afghanistan, where they received firearms training at a camp apparently run by a Uighur separatist.

Some former U.S. officials have said government information indicates that the Uighurs may pose a danger if released. But other officials and human rights organizations insist they pose no threat to Americans…

Not long after being granted access to TV, some of the Uighurs were watching a soccer game. When a woman with bare arms was shown on the screen, one of the group grabbed the television and threw it to the ground, according to the officials.

They’re likely headed to the Virginia suburbs, but Stephanopoulos warns us that the crazy Republicans (who also support enhanced interrogation) are likely to “pounce” on the decision, so who knows where these poor misunderstood souls who somehow ended up in Afghanistan and are known to become violent at the sight of bare arms will end up. Exit question: How about Montana?
