What A Perfect Way To End The Term!

Ronald A. Cass has a good breakdown of the idiocy that was the Hamdan v. Rumsfeld ruling.
The five-justice majority of the Supreme Court that decided the Hamdan case yesterday showed great interest in demonstrating their commitment to upholding constitutional protections and protecting international human rights, both admirable instincts in many settings. They showed less appreciation for the fact that Americans are threatened, and thousands of innocent Americans were killed by brutal thugs - the sort who behead civilians, film it as sport, and post the video on the Internet. And the justices showed no appreciation for the fact that Congress and the President might well know more than they do about the security needs of the United States.
Read the whole column. The Court's convoluted and creative decision will leave you scratching your head and wondering what world Breyer, Ginsberg, Kennedy, Souter, and Stevens live in. It obviously isn't the post Nine-Eleven world that rest of us inhabit.
