What the hell? they're not US citizens! They are terrorists and thus aren't covered by the Geneva Accords.

Meaningless, except that it's a step along the way for SCOTUS to make the final ruling.

Don't worry. This, the Padilla, the 9th Circus will make it all the easier for Bush, and more importantly, GOP Senate candidates, to pound home the point about Judges next year. We now have an effective response to the worn-out Democratic line about Republican-appointed judges returning us to pre-Roe and pre-Brown days.

Wait now, I thought these guys were under Military arrest. If so, they'd be supplied with military lawyers, and subjected to Military judges and rules, right? Wondering....

Even less than meaningless. The detainees are on foreign soil outside the reach of the Constitution and the emperor-judges.

Court Rules Lawyer Access for Detainees

By DAVID KRAVETS

ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A federal appeals court ruled Thursday for the first time that prisoners held at Guantanamo Naval Base in Cuba should have access to lawyers and the American court system.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals' 2-1 decision was a rebuke to the Bush Administration. The administration maintains that because the 660 men held there were picked up overseas on suspicion of terrorism and are being held on foreign land, they may be detained indefinitely without charges or trial.

Forget that.

Take 'em back to Afghanistan and set up a camp there run by the new government with American assistance.

Let the Afghanis try them one at a time....publicly.

Clinton and Carter appointees up to their old tricks. This will be over-ruled by the full court, or by SCOTUS.

Isn't this the same bunch who tried to put the kibosh on the California governor recall?

How many legions does the court have!

:-)

Maybe Pres. Bush will ultimately tell the justices to take their army and go free them themselves!

(What they should have done w Roe V. Wade, bitch slap the court down and refuse to obide by the unconstititonal decision).

How does the 9th circuit even have jurisdiction to make a ruling in this case... the detainees are in Cuba, which isn't in the 9th circuit.

Hmmmmmmmm, the most overturned circuit court in the nation. On to the Supreme Court then. Even they don't inspire a hell of a lot of confidence. Indeed the Supremes are getting as bad as the 9th for stupidity.

God save us from activist judges.
