Justices: Gitmo detainees can challenge detention in U.S. courts

The decision marks another legal blow to the Bush administration's war on terrorism policies.

The 5-4 vote reflects the divide over how much legal autonomy the U.S. military should have to prosecute about 270 prisoners, some of whom have been held for more than six years without charges.
The "nation will live to regret what the court has done today," Scalia said.

NOOOOOOOO! Don't treat them like criminals. Treat them like true prisoners! They won't be a threat as long as the war is continuous. They are in their 20s and 30s. By the time the war is over, they be in their 80s and 90s.
