Guantanamo Bay: US hails 'milestone' release of Chinese Uighurs

The BBC has the story. None of this story makes any sense. Who hails this? Why is this a milestone? They are going to the Czech Republic, which says they are not "terror suspects". Story doesn't say what we think they are. If they are terrorists, why are they being let out? If they aren't, why were they in there? Did somebody make a decision on this, or was this just a whim of some guy, some where, some when? Also:
In April US President Barack Obama renewed his call to close the prison, labeling it inefficient and harmful to America's international standing.
What? Who's in charge? Isn't the President in charge? Who the heck is he calling? His evil twin? Christ on a crutch, the more I hear, the less I like. So what else is new, Ducky?

The prisoners were thought to be terrorists, probably only because the NSA text analysis SW got confused and
"Guantanamo Bay" is an anagram of "Banana Atom Guy" ;-)
