Bagram Blues

Ackerman sees more of the same from the Obama administration:

[In] 2008, the Supreme Court ruled in the landmark Boumediene case that [Guantanamo] detainees were entitled to habeas corpus protections...[David Remes, the legal director of the non-profit Appeal for Justice law firm who represents 19 Guantanamo detainees] foresees a protracted fight [over Bagram detainees]. “We’ll spend another four years going up to the Supreme Court on the question of Bagram [detainees'] habeas rights,” he said. “It’s another stall. And one I would have expected from the Bush administration but not the Obama administration.”
