The DC Circuit Court puts another brake on King George and Prince Dick:
The D.C. Circuit Court has put a stop to any further efforts to dismiss Guantanamo Bay detainees' habeas cases in federal District Courts in Washington, recalling the mandates that would implement its Feb. 20 decision nullifying all detainee habeas rights.
... With the Supreme Court scheduled to take up the basic question of legal rights for detainees at its Term starting Oct. 1, the government's attempt to get the benefit of Congress' court-stripping provisions in the Military Commissions Act of 2006 has been stalled, likely for several months.
The only Guantanamo detainee cases moving forward now are the D.C. Circuit's review of the military orders finding prisoners to be "enemy combatants" leading to their continued detention at the U.S. military prison at a U.S. naval base in Cuba.
And the truth about the military tribunals begins to leak out.
