Things really suck...

When the current Supreme Court is "the good guys."

From USA Today via Michelle:
A federal judge on Wednesday dismissed lawsuits by seven foreigners held at the U.S. military base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The judge ruled that suspected al-Qaeda and Taliban operatives there have no constitutional right to challenge the legality of their indefinite detentions.

The Supreme Court said last June that the 550 detainees at Guantanamo could file lawsuits in U.S. courts to challenge their detentions. In the first federal court ruling on the issue since then, District Judge Richard Leon said President Bush had not exceeded his war powers by ordering the detentions.
The concentration/torture camp at Guantanamo has been in operation for three years now. Every day is a new crime against humanity. Finally, last summer, the Supreme Court ruled that the hostages there (that's what they are) actually had a few tiny crumbs of human rights. Now Judge Leon decides he's not only above the constitution, he's above the Supremes! I'm with ya, Rush! These activist judges have to go. How about sending Leon to Gitmo? He's obviously an enemy of the state.
