Judge slaps downs Bush, Gitmo trials

Guantanamo trial is ruled unlawful

Judge says that detainee was denied due process, and that Pentagon tribunals are invalid.

“Invalid”, of course, means “illegal.”

To correct the system, Robertson said, the government must recognize the detainees as prisoners of war under the Geneva Convention until it has a legally valid way to declare they are not.

“Today’s decision sends a clear message that the fight against terrorism does not give the government license to disregard domestic and international law,” said Anthony D. Romero, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union.
