Supreme Court Blocks Bush, Gitmo War Trials

In a 5-3 split the liberal-pansy justices of the Supreme Court have sided with the terrorists. You know who they were - you don't even need to ask: Stevens, Breyer, Ginsberg, Kennedy [aka "The Moderate"], and Souter.
The Supreme Court ruled Thursday that President Bush overstepped his authority in ordering military war crimes trials for Guantanamo Bay detainees.

The ruling, a rebuke to the administration and its aggressive anti- terror policies, was written by Justice John Paul Stevens [ed: No surprise there. Stevens needs to retire; how long can the jackass hold on anyway? Didn't he serve with John Jay?], who said the proposed trials were illegal under U.S. law and Geneva conventions.
Only 8 of the justices ruled on the case. Chief Justice Roberts sat out because he had ruled on the case while serving on the appeals court. He ruled correctly on the case then; and by correctly I mean with the government. Fortunately there will be little impact on the day to day operations at Club Gitmo. The court wasn't asked to rule on the Guantanamo detention facility itself, or they might actually have let the enemy combatants loose.
