finding palau

this article is pretty sad. apparently, the rightwing shitstorm about scary gitmo detainees has managed to spook the people of palau, the uighurs in question were not enemy combatants even according to the bush administration. and yet, after the recent fear mongering about the detainees, ordinary palauians (palauis?) are voicing their doubts.

the best part of the article is not the article itself, but rather the map on the lower right margin of the web page. presumably it's there to help people--most of whom probably never heard of palau before this week--figure out where the island nation is. check it out:

that should clear that up.
