Where the Hell is Palau?Palau agrees to take the Uighurs.
Hope and change for Palau to the extent of 200 million dollars!
Two U.S. officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the U.S. was prepared to give Palau up to $200 million (U.S.) in development, budget support and other assistance in return for accepting the Uighurs and as part of a mutual defence and cooperation treaty that is due to be renegotiated this year.
So all the lofty rhetoric about closing Guantanamo turns into a payoff scheme. The audacity of hope certainly does not include the audacity to release the Uighurs on U.S. soil.
