So, the US Supreme Court has decided that it would be nice to give the Guantanamo Bay detainees some of their human rights back, and give them access to civilian courts and that habeas corpus thingy (whatever that is — sounds foreign, and therefore un-American). Antonin Scalia is one of the brave judges who disagreed with the ruling, and in his dissenting opinion he wrote:
“it sets our military commanders the impossible task of proving to a civilian court … that evidence supports the confinement of each and every enemy prisoner”.
Wow. Imagine that; having to prove that you have a good reason for confining every prisoner! Every single one! What a bunch of unreasonable bastards those other Supreme Court judges are! Personally, I’d just take George’s word for it that they’re evil-doers and throw away the key, but I guess those other judges just ain’t patriotic enough to trust the President!
