The Supreme Court rejected the Bush administration’s argument that the Guantánamo Bay detainees had adequate protections under a 2005 law.
Religion and politics are two subjects that most Americans have been told to stay away from in their associations with others. I was told when I entered my private high school to stay away from these subjects as the school was filled with girls from all over the world. We ignored this rule and we all became comfortable with each other’s Gods and government differences.
The Supreme Court today ruled in a 5-4 decision, with Chief Justice Roberts writing a minority dissenting opinion, that the detainees of the United States at Guantanamo Bay have access to the protections of the writ of habeas corpus. They thus have the right to question their detention in the Federal Court system.
