Supreme Court to Hear Guantanamo Detainees' Appeal
    #2088835 - 11/10/03 10:17 AM (12 years, 11 months ago)


WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court (news - web sites) said on Monday it would hear appeals by Afghan war detainees who challenged as unlawful their continued incarceration at a U.S. military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

The justices agreed to review a ruling that U.S. courts lack jurisdiction to consider claims by a group of detainees held without access to their families or to lawyers, and held without any charges brought against them.

The Supreme Court will hear arguments in the case next year, with a decision due by the end of June. It marked the first time the nation's highest court agreed to decide a case stemming from the Bush administration's anti-terrorism policies.

As an American, it makes me sick that terrorism gave Bush a free hand to ignore the values that America was founded upon. Perhaps this is a sign that things will change... we can only hope.

Just another spore in the wind.
