Supreme court backed away from Uighur’s Guantanamo case

The Supreme Court will no longer hear the case of 17 Chinese Muslims held at Guantanamo even though a judge had ruled their freedom. The decision came after the Obama Adminsitration tle the high court that all these Uighurs have been offered to leave for countries outside the United States. While 12 of them have left Guantanamo, the remaining five Uighurs have rejected the deal and stayed in the US prison. The court said since the remaining Uighurs are not held in prison against their will, the court will drop the case.
