US Constitution declaired MORE than 'just a piece of paper'.
In a surprising turn of events Habeas Corpus and the Constitution are upheld! The USA to be the example for justice in this world again. After more than SIX YEARS rotting in a cell at Guantanimo Bay Prison Camp, the 280+ men still left in limbo have been given back their right to to trial.
As many as 500 of the "worst of the worst" have previously been released back to their home countries, most have been released without ever being charged, tried, or punished (because they were innocent). Now, those who are still held, from places like Bosnia, China, and the USA, are to be charged and tried with the same human and civil rights as all U.S. Citizens.
To make this Supreme Court ruling stick will be take a courageous move by the American people, as the Bush Administration has raped the US Constitution again and again over the past seven years.
The torture survivor, John McCain, is afraid that these trials will expose the abuses of the Republican administration.
This is a historic event. The fact that after Bush's Supreme Court Appointees decent to the majority opinion the High Court still did the right thing is astounding! Now, what are they going to do next? Perhaps they will make torture illegal again?
