Tomorrow, the Supreme Court will announce its decision in the case of Hamdan vs Rumsfeld.
I’m openning this thread to debate not just the rulling, but what it tells us about the Roberts court. Roberts has recused himself, but we know where he stands since he was part of the appleate court’s decision that the SCOTUS is rulling on.
There are two main issues being addressed:
Are the military tribunals set up by the Bush administration have been authorized by Congress by the AUMF resolution(s).
Do the Gitmo detainees designated as illegal combatants have rights as POWs under artilce III of the 1949 Geneva Convetion.
