Chinese Detainees Are Men Without a Country – Robin Wright

From The Washington Post:

In late 2003, the Pentagon quietly decided that 15 Chinese Muslims detained at the military prison in , Cuba, could be released. Five were people who were in the wrong place at the wrong time, some of them picked up by Pakistani bounty hunters for U.S. payoffs. The other 10 were deemed low-risk detainees whose enemy was China’s communist government — not the United States, according to senior U.S. officials.

More than 20 months later, the 15 still languish at Guantanamo Bay, imprisoned and sometimes shackled, with most of their families unaware whether they are even alive.
