Finally Justice prevails

I read this morning about the Supreme Courts split decision to grant habeas Corpus to the Guantanamo detainees. IT IS ABOUT TIME! Finally some sensible and just dealings with this whole secretive, skirting the laws of the land, thinking we are above the law administration that has been in power over the last 8 years. We have held these men for upwards of 7 years and there has been no opportunity for them to challenge, with any clarity or understanding of the charges levied against them, their detention. That is just wrong!

Let’s hope that we will be swearing in President Obama in January, who has pledged to close Guantanamo and restore habeas corpus. This administration has done everything it can to avoid operating within the bounds of law, in fact I would go so far as to say that they have sought to re-write the law according to their ignorant and extreme right wing perspective. I am so sick and tired of this president and his politics or, rather his attempted tyranny. He (bush) is a special kind of idiot, his type of idiocy has to be cultivated and nurtured, it isn’t just the result of bad genes.

It is interesting that the justices appointed by him, followed his lead. Scalia writing his apocalyptic response to the decision, when in fact I think the bush perspective is more likely to bring the apocalyptic results that Scalia described. We need to restore some sanity to our federal leadership.

One thought on “Finally Justice prevails

  1. It certainly seems we have seen a concerted effort to undermine the Constitution during this administration. Sounds like this is a much-needed step in the right direction!

    January of ’09 is just around the corner. 🙂 Let’s see if we can start the next administration on the right foot!

    BTW You must really be liking the Supreme Court now for their first ruling on the interpretation of the Second Amendment? 🙂
