After years of political and legal wrangling, a chartered flight landed at Bermuda's only airport at dawn Thursday morning, carrying four former Guantanamo detainees. The four Chinese Muslims, from the Uighur ethnic group in northwest China, had been held at the U.S. detention center in Guantanamo Bay since 2002. They were accompanied to Bermuda by their lawyers, Bingham McCutchen partners Sabin Willett and Susan Baker Manning, who have been fighting for their release in American courts since 2005.
