Enemy Combatants and Military Tribunals

The United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia circuit handed the Bush Administration a huge victory in the war on terror today by ruling that enemy combatants currently being held at Guantanamo Bay can be tried by military tribunal. The Court also ruled that enemy combatants such as the Al Qaeda members currently imprisoned at Guantanamo are not covered by the 1949 Geneva Convention which governs the treatment of prisoners of war.

Democrats have complained about Guantanamo Bay, our treatment of prisoners there, and the methods the Bush Administration has chosen to deal with them. Once again the President is proved right.

Trackback Pings


But then again, Democrats will complain about every Bush policy.

Given the chance this may end up before SCOTUS, we have yet another reason it is imperative for strict constructionist jurists to be appointed and confirmed to the court.
