The Supreme Court’s ruling on the seizure and detention of suspected terrorists is in.
The ruling reportedly is that “both U.S. citizens and foreign nationals seized as potential terrorists can challenge their treatment in U.S. courts.”
There are a number of tricky angles on this thing. I certainly wouldn’t want to be locked away on suspicion without redress. Then again, I’m a U.S. citizen. The thing I fear about this ruling is the possibility that it opens the courts to non-citizens, enemy combatants, acknowledged terrorists — legitimizing (for example) Michael Moore’s senseless call to treat Osama bin Laden as “innocent until proven guilty.”
What powers does the CIC have?
