"Old Hickory" Lite

NYT:
The Supreme Court on Thursday repudiated the Bush administration's plan to put Guantánamo detainees on trial before military commissions, ruling broadly that the commissions were unauthorized by federal statute and violated international law.

"The executive is bound to comply with the rule of law that prevails in this jurisdiction," Justice John Paul Stevens, writing for the 5-to-3 majority, said at the end of a 73-page opinion that in sober tones shredded each of the administration's arguments, including the assertion that Congress had stripped the court of jurisdiction to decide the case.

The decision was such a sweeping and categorical defeat for the administration that it left human rights lawyers who have pressed this and other cases on behalf of Guantánamo detainees almost speechless with surprise and delight, using words like "fantastic," "amazing" and "remarkable."

Bush Vows to Pursue Detainee War Trials

After a Supreme Court decision overruling war crimes trials for Guantanamo Bay detainees, President Bush suggested Thursday he would seek Congress' approval to proceed with trying terrorism suspects before military tribunals.

"To the extent that there is latitude to work with the Congress to determine whether or not the military tribunals will be an avenue in which to give people their day in court, we will do so," he said. "The American people need to know that the ruling, as I understand it, won't cause killers to be put out on the street."

Bush said little more, saying he had received only a "drive-by briefing" on the ruling just out earlier Thursday morning.

"We will seriously look at the findings," Bush said. "And one thing I'm not going to do, though, is I'm not going to jeopardize the safety of the American people. People got to understand that."


"John Marshall has made his decision. Now let him enforce it."


-Andrew Jackson

The problem, of course, is that if the Bush administration is pushed too much, we will suffer another "terrorist attack". Similar to the idea that if anyone ever tried to cut the defense budget, it will be "bombs away"!

Remember, the anthrax killer is likely to be an American who murdered for money. The FBI has been going around to companies around the country and asking if they had anthrax on hand at 9/11 and if they would profit from an other anthrax attack.

Seen Khalid Sheik Mohammed lately? Or ever? He worked for the government of Qatar in the '90s and Qatar is a US ally and was one in the '90s.

How do you know Khalid Sheik Mohammed is being tortured in a secret CIA prison? Because George W. Bush told you so?

President Bush did not want you to know anything about the 9/11 attacks. Those four wanton widows from New Jersey that Coulter so gleefully bashes stood up to the prick and, at least now, we have some sort of "official" info about who planned the 9/11 attacks and how they were carried out.

Are today's Republicans even capable of arguing without straw men any more? The only people I've heard talking about "turning the terrorists loose" are on the right. No one is proposing turning them loose.

george, it's certainly true that bush can't argue without straw men and phony assertions. as it happens, much like the schiavo case, the preliminary polling data available to us tells us that the american public is being completely and totally rational on this matter in the fact of executive branch irrationality.

i've probably missed someone, but so far, pelosi and kennedy are the only national dems i've noticed speaking out in support of the decision as a victory for basic american principles. where the hell is the rest of the democratic party? we do know that the gop is much too in thrall to its inner thug to even notice the reasoning of the decision.

it will take years (if it's even possible) for our discourse to recover from the damage done to it by the bush years....
