Not Exactly Shooting For \”Miss Congeniality\”

Strike One…

Yesterday, the U.S. Supreme Court strongly limited the power of Bush and his administration to conduct military tribunal for the detainees currently being held at Guantanamo Bay.

Justice Stephen Breyer wrote: Congress has not issued the executive a ‘blank check'”.

The 5-3 ruling means officials will have to come up with a new policy to prosecute at least 10 so-called “enemy combatants” awaiting trial — it does not address the government’s ability to detain suspects.

The case was the first major test of Bush’s authority as commander-in-chief during war.

Something tells me this will not be the last.
