Supreme Court stands up to Executive Powers abuse

June 30, 2006

I was very thrilled to hear about the Supreme Court deciding that the Geneva convention does cover the illegally held detainees at Guantanamo. I’m not a lawyer nor do I play one on tv, so when I heard about Hamdan vs. Rumsfeld, I went to Glenn Greenwald’s blog to get a good understanding of it. It appears to be a mixed bag, but the important part was restricting the overreach of the Executive Branch of our government. As of this posting, there are 2 posts about it,Anonymous Liberal’s post is here and Glenn’s thoughts are here.
The ScotusBlog has several informative pieces on the decision, also.
