No sooner do I complete writing a post mentioning one of the most odious pieces of legislation ever devised in the “land of the free” that a faint ray of hope comes through:
From the New York Times:
Justices Rule Terror Suspects Can Appeal in Civilian Courts
WASHINGTON — Foreign terrorism suspects held at the Guantánamo Bay naval base in Cuba have constitutional rights to challenge their detention there in United States courts, the Supreme Court ruled, 5 to 4, on Thursday in a historic decision on the balance between personal liberties and national security.
5 to 4. 5 to 4.
How very far we have fallen.
