Supreme Court Lets Guantanamo Prisoners Challenge Detention in U.S. Courts

WASHINGTON — A divided Supreme Court ruled Thursday that foreign terrorism suspects held at Guantanamo Bay have rights under the Constitution to challenge their detention in U.S. civilian courts.

I'm not here to say that we should give foreign war prisoners full constitutional rights but I do beleive this is the right move. We are NOT the rulers of this world so we need to adhere to the rules we agreed to at the Geneva Convention. I really want to see these guys get their day in court. Instead of just hearing the MSM and administration pump out stories claiming that they have admitted to this or that. I want to hear it from their own lips on national TV. Uncensored.
