Federal judge may order release of Chinese Guantanamo Bay detainees

Tuesday, October 07, 2008

A federal judge in Washington, D.C., will hear the case of 17 Chinese Uighurs who have been held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba for seven years. Though the government cleared them for release in 2004, they can't be returned to China for fear that they will be tortured. No other country will take them.
Guest: George Clarke, lawyer with Miller & Chevalier, representing 2 of the 17 Chinese Uighurs in custody at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba
