The U.S. Supreme Court held that the rule of law and our Constitution apply to those wretches at Guantanamo Bay who have been locked away for many years without counsel, due process, or even knowing the "evidence" by which they are being held.
Said evidence, of course, is much too secret for them or the public to know.
I don’t doubt that there are prisoners at Guantanamo who fought against the United States, and probably even some who participated in bombings and kidnappings.
Of course, during World War II, people who did such actions in occupied Europe were lauded as heroes by the Allies. It all depends on whose ox is getting gored.
The razor-thin basis by which this ruling was made is a frightening reminder of the kind of people Bush has put on the Supreme Court.
