Breaking: SCOTUS Bench-Slaps Bush Over Gitmo

supreme%20court%202.JPGJust this morning, the Supreme Court struck down the Bush Administration's plan to try Guantanamo detainees before military commissions, as violative of both U.S. law and the Geneva Conventions. The decision in Hamdan v. Rumsfeld was 5-3, with the conservatives -- Justices Scalia, Thomas, and Alito -- in dissent. (Chief Justice Roberts was recused, since he had ruled on the case -- in favor of the government -- as a lower court judge.)


More TK. Administration press conferences later today.
