Supremes whack Dubya upside the head
In a matter of a few minutes Monday, the Supreme Court unraveled a major component of the Bush administration’s legal strategy for fighting the war on terror.
The administration argued that because the nation is at war, it could label terrorist suspects as enemy combatants and allow interrogators unfettered access to try to wring security information from them without interference by lawyers or courts.
The Supreme Court disagreed. It ruled that even enemy combatants deserve at the least a chance to prove in court they are innocent.
Wow, the Supreme Court affirmed the Consitution is still valid! (Sigh…)
