Top court rules for Guantanamo prisoners

"Security subsists, too, in fidelity to freedom's first principles. Chief among these are freedom from arbitrary and unlawful restraint," Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote

By a 5-4 vote, the nation's highest court struck down the law that Bush pushed through the Republican-led Congress in 2006 that took away the habeas corpus rights of the terrorism suspects to seek full judicial review of their detention.

So I guess that the federal government keeps getting the smack down from the branch that everyone was worried would be to conservative... So do we see FLDS style reunions in court?
How can these trials be a bad thing? Why are we so scared to prosecute?

This is one of the most outrageous rulings the supreme court has made in a very long time. NEVER in our nations history has the rights of U.S. citizens been given to terrorist caught on the battlefield. The 5 radical liberal judges who voted for this nonsense should be ashamed.

Using this twisted logic, I guess on the battlefield our soldiers will have to give the terrorists shooting at them their miranda rights. Wait a minute, since the court now says they are afforded the rights of U.S. citizens, how can we even shoot at them because it would be like shooting at U.S. citizens. This is just a ridiculous ruling.

This is one reason to vote for McCain since he stated he will at least submit strict constitutionalists for supreme court seats. These 5 radical liberal judges are writting their own laws instead of ruling on the law. Please tell me where in the Constitution that foreign enemies are afforded the rights of U.S. citizens.

Plus, since liberals love so cite precendent, what about the precedent set back during the WWII era by the supreme court which said no federal court had jurisdiction to hear their cases because the base is outside the sovereign territory of the United States. This current ruling is nothing but radical liberal judges gone awry.

Great ruling. About time we hear some good news. Glad that some things are starting to change for the better.

There scared to prosocute because they don't have a reason to keep them there, you can't keep someone locked up just because they have a different view to you. Guantanamo is a disgrace, the USA should be setting a example of what a free nation should be about instead they look just as bad as the Taliban. I still can't believe some of these people have been locked up for years, tortured and not even convicted, what sort of message are they trying to set to the world?
