The Supreme Court has finally answered the question of how long it would take to issue a decision even more idiotic and destructive than its infamous Kelo case allowing corrupt municipalities to steal private land. Today the Court released its decision in the Hamdan case, and basically ruled that everything the Congress and administration had decided about trying al qaeda terrorists was wrong. See http://www.supremecourtus.gov/opinions/05slipopinion.html Probably the single most egregious feature of the opinion is the Court's contortions to avoid application of a law passed by congress that removed habeas corpus jurisdiction for these cases and substituted an appeal process in the federal appeals court in DC. As Justice Scalia's typically thorough dissent makes clear, the Court simply ignored prior precedent and improperly reached a decision directly contrary to the statute. The practical effect will be to flood the federal court system with hundreds of difficult cases involving al qaeda members. In addition, the Court's decision apparently will require the government to reveal confidential information to these terrorists. So for the brave afghans who helped us, good luck and keep that Ak-47 loaded because ql aeada will be paying you a visit, thanks to our Supreme Court.
