That was totally expected, no release for those 17

Those 17 not-enemy-combatants that Pakistan handed to the U.S.? An emergency motion blocking their release was granted to the administration.

That’s not surprising; I expected that the administration would not have bothered with a court order.  I mean, they could have just refused to comply.

This whole situation is ridiculous.  If this is really an immigration issue, why not transfer them to an immigration detention center?  Isn’t that where immigrants who are being processed for deportation go? That way it really does become an immigration status problem.

The Bush administration has already released over 400 prisoners to other countries. While the 17 do not have a place to go, keeping them in the U.S. gulag can’t be the right thing to do.

U.S. Supreme Court surprise

No way. I’m posting the image from CNN’s website but I could swear it says

U.S. Supreme Court says detainees at Guantanamo Bay have constitutional right to challenge their detention in civilian courts.

No Way from CNN

I see this headline and I can’t help but wonder “Yes, but what’s the catch?”
