The southern edge of South America seems an unlikely home for six men who have spent more than a decade locked up without charge at the U.S. base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.The prisoners, who are likely to be released soon, have been offered a refuge in Uruguay, where President Jose Mujica agreed as a humanitarian gesture to accept men that the U.S. has decided do not pose a threat but cannot return to their homelands. Mujica has said Uruguayan businesses have already offered to find work for the men.The six prisoners – four Syrians, one Palestinian and one Tunisian – have been held at Guantanamo since 2002, when the U.S. government began using the base to detain men suspected of terrorism or links to Al-Qaeda and the Taliban.
