Order to Free 17 Chinese Muslims Blocked

I am so glad to see that there are some judges with common sense! Now they just have to send these terrorists back to China.

ABC News: Order to Free 17 Chinese Muslims Blocked: "A three-judge panel for the United States Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit has blocked the release of 17 Guantanamo detainees onto United States soil.
17 Uighur detainees could be headed to the U.S. from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

A Baltimore-based refugee aid organization is preparing to help settle 17 Uighur detainees from the U.S. Navy detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba in the United States. The U.S. government is appealing the decision to let the men enter the country.

A lower court had ordered that the men -- ethnic Chinese Muslims -- be released Friday. The men have spent seven years in Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba. The government no longer considers the men enemy combatants.

Tonight the Court of Appeals blocked the lower court order and set up a briefing schedule that would require all briefs in the case to be filed by Oct. 16."
