Supreme Court Finds For Human Rights

The U.S. Supreme Court found today, by a 5 to 4 ruling, that detainees at Guantánamo Bay have a constitutional right to go to federal court to challenge their continued detention. Kennedy sided with the majority in the case, Boumediene v. Bush, and wrote the opinion, declaring, “The laws and Constitution are designed to survive, and remain in force, in extraordinary times.”

Hallelujah! This is yet another blow in the never ending battle to ensure that the terrorists don’t win by destroying what America stands for.

Roberts, Alito, Scalia (worst Justice ever), and Thomas dissented.
