Andy McCarthy is using the Uighur uprising in China to "prove" that the Gitmo Uighurs were terrorists. Radley Balko sighs:

There was once a time when, if an ethnic minority was rising up against an oppressive communist regime, you could count on National Review to side with the rabble-rousers fighting for political freedom, not the commies. But I guess that was pre-September 11. Now it’s apparently all about siding with whoever is killing Muslims.

Actually, it's all about retaining the right to torture Muslims.
