|All five Uighurs whom McClatchy interviewed were found to be no longer enemy combatants by a U.S. military tribunal at Guantanamo. Most of them admitted to being at a camp in Afghanistan that featured rudimentary weapons training — handling an AK-47 — but said they had no affiliation with al Qaida or the Taliban. Two of the men said that while they had no intentions of fighting the United States, they were prepared to fight against China.|
