Posted on 06/15/2008 8:05:52 AM PDT by Quaker
Democrats praise the Supreme Court ruling that gives suspected terrorists held by the U.S. military at Guantanamo Bay the right to challenge their detention in federal court.
Barack Obama praised the 5-4 ruling that allows terrorists awaiting military tribunals at Guantanamo Bay to appeal their cases to U.S. civilian courts.

And who says the SCOTUS has not turned into a PURELY PARTISAN ACTIVIST group???
The only crime here is that we let these detainees live for so long. Execute them all now so we won’t have to deal with them anymore.
Remember the “good ole days” when the Constitution applied to American citizens only? And back when the SCOTUS paid attention to the WRITTEN LAW?
It works to the destruction of the Republic. Of course they’re pleased.
And out next crime is to allow Obama into the White House in which he gets to appoint the next 3-4 Supreme Court Justices who will screw us for the next 30 years.
Much easier to kill the beast on the battle-field, but our suicidal Rules of Engagement will put our brave men and women at great risk if attempted.
It breaks my heart and makes me sick to my stomach knowing so many traitors are among us. These bastards wont be happy until there are plane-loads of U.S. Service men and women on their way to the Hague
Indeed! But do you really think there is one single Democrat or liberal who even knows that we live in a Republic? They are all freakin' idiots!
By the way, it's "National Bust a Lib Across the Chops Day."
I think you’re going to see less prisoners, dead terrorists won’t be able to get an ACLU lawyer.
You mean that document that begins:
""We the People of the United States..."
So now the USSC has bought into Slick Willie’s “Isn’t it all a criminal matter” approach?. ‘W’ should order all those asshats executed, immediately. To paraphrase Albert Anastasia, “If you ain’t got no defendants, you ain’t got no case”. Or, ship them somewhere overseas. Like 20,000 feet over Afghanistan. Then push.
Of course they praise it, they want whatever is against our country.
But wait a day....and he'll say that's not what I meant...The blogs are misconstuing my words.
In my opinion, we are only now seeing the beginning of war crime trials against American soldiers. They will expand under a Democrat in the White House and will include Bush Administration figures.
Negotiations with foreign opponents such as Iran and Syria will establish terrorist enclaves immune to attack. Likely Venezuela and other countries will join in with training camps.
The on-going power struggle between the White House, the US House and the Supreme Court. The SCOTUS, every day ‘lawyers’ now have the upper hand, taking the country even further into Socialism. Did the country fall the other day? If Ruth Bader Ginsburg had her way, it would have happened years ago.
I heard George Will on ABC praising the decision and saying it’s not a big deal. Unreal.
You're confused again, Hussein. The "legal black hole" is your "Trinity United Church of Christ" in Chicago.
What I remain most confused about in all this is how the SCOTUS can overturn, unilaterally, a law drafted and passed by both the Executive and Legislative branch? How does that fit with our concept of “balance of power?”
