STEVE INSKEEP, host:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.

Four men, freed from the Guantanamo, found jobs. Like all Guantanamo prisoners, they were once described by the Bush administration as the worst of the worst. Then the U.S. military said they didn't pose a threat. They're Uiqhurs, members of a Chinese separatist group. Couldn't go back to China, and then Bermuda took them. Now they're working on landscaping a golf course, preparing it for a PGA Tour event, the Grand Slam of Golf.

It's MORNING EDITION.
