Justice Kennedy's Got Your Nose!

At least that's what it feels like, says Ann Coulter:
Until last week, the law had been that there were some places in the world where American courts had no jurisdiction. For example, U.S. courts had no jurisdiction over non-citizens who have never set foot in the United States. [...]

If Justice Kennedy can review the procedures for detaining enemy combatants trying to kill Americans in the middle of a war, no place is safe. It's only a matter of time before the Supreme Court steps in to overrule Randy, Paula and Simon. [...]

As one law professor said to me, this is what happens when the swing justice is the dumb justice. [...]

The logical result of Boumediene is for the U.S. military to exert itself a little less trying to take enemy combatants alive. The military also might consider not sending the little darlings to the Guantanamo Spa and Resort.
The lady makes a good point. If we simply must take the bastards alive - which has always been an unappealing option in my book - let's send them someplace Justice Kenburgstevouter definitely has no authority. I hear the prisons in Thailand are lovely this time of year.
