Freed from Guantánamo, but stuck in limbo

  • Aired: 10/12/2013
  • 08:18
  • Rating: NR
On Saturday, we look at the story of six former prisoners from Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. These ethnic Chinese men known as Uighurs were rounded up in Afghanistan and Pakistan after 9/11. They spent eight years in prison before being cleared of any wrongdoing by U.S. courts, and now find themselves stranded in a legal and political limbo on the tiny Pacific island nation of Palau.
