Bush Tactics Unconstitutional

From Bloomberg.com:

"A U.S. judge ruled that a group of suspected terrorists held at the U.S. Navy base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, can challenge their detention in federal court.

U.S. District Judge Joyce Hens Green rejected a request by the Bush administration to throw out lawsuits by 54 detainees protesting their imprisonment. Green said tribunals set up by the Pentagon to test whether the prisoners are 'enemy combatants' violate the U.S. Constitution and in some cases the Geneva Conventions, which govern treatment of prisoners of war."

The original ruling which threw out the lawsuits brought by detainees was made by a Bush appointee, Richard Leon saying he found "no viable legal theory exists by which'' a court could order the detainees' release.

Green's ruling stated in part, "It would be far easier for the government to prosecute the war on terrorism if it could imprison all suspected 'enemy combatants' at Guantanamo Bay without having to acknowledge and respect any constitutional rights of detainees,'' Green wrote. "That, however, is not the relevant legal test.''

Hard to understand why Democrats fight so hard in some cases to keep the wacko right wing judicial appointees from being confirmed isn't it?
