Hamdan v Rumsfeld

For the latest information and links on Hamdan v. Rumsfeld read Think Progress and Majikthise.

This graf, from Glenn Greenwald gets to the core of it:

It has been some time since real limits were placed on the Bush administration in the area of national security. The rejection of the President's claims to unlimited authority with regard to how Al Qaeda prisoners are treated is extraordinary and encouraging by any measure. The decision is an important step towards re-establishing the principle that there are three co-equal branches of government and that the threat of terrorism does not justify radical departures from the principles of government on which our country was founded.
