Just When You Think You Have Heard It All- The continuing saga of the Uighers

I tried to make a link to the Westside Story song "america" because it just seems so appropriate for this posting but my technology skills have failed me again. So I ask you to hum it in your mind as you read this:

The government has now described in court pleadings to the Appellate Court that the Uighers are too dangerous to be settled in the United States because we have held them unfairly for all of these years and this of course must make them hostile to us and therefore dangerous.... but they argue that it is just fine to send them somewhere else because the Uighers will not have that same hostility to other countries.

CLICK ON THE TITLE TO READ MORE AND TO ALSO READ ABOUT THE MOTION THAT THE ATTORNEYS FOR THE UIGHERS HAVE FILED ASKING THAT THE GOVERNMENT BE HELD IN CONTEMPT OF COURT...

Thanks Charley.... If you only knew how long I spent (unsuccessfully) trying to figure out how to do that link!
Well actually it is best no one knows.

There is a legal principle, isn't there, that one cannot profit from one's own bad acts? What needs to happen is that the Uighers' attorneys need to show their rights were violated by the U.S. with the long detention without trial. Once that is accepted by the court, then the U.S. will not be able to argue against their stay in the U.S. - at least, not based on their detention at the hand of the U.S.
