you'll notice that the ENTIRE debate over the issue lasts for about a minute, and they don't give Dougherty effective response time. It's a pretty clear indication that the premise couldn't withstand much scrutiny.

And then when we learn that the Son'a and Baku are actually the same group, it makes the Baku case even WEAKER, as it gives the Son'a equal claim to the planet.
Picard looks even worse when you count in the fact that he was ready to do exactly what he was arguing against Dougherty doing in TNG's Journey's End.

Granted you could argue that Picard learned and changed. But it wasn't even given a glancing blow. Doughtery should have called Picard on it.
Didn't they relocate them in the TNG episode to prevent a war? That's an entirely different situation.
And seeing as the Ba'ku claim to the planet predates the existence of the federation by a few DECADES its kind of hard to say its a federation planet. Especially since the Ba'ku were unaware of the federation's existence until they were trying to kidnap them.
