Once again, the Supreme Court epically fails.
In the majority opinion, written by Mr. Swing Voter himself, Justice Anthony Kennedy:
“The laws and constitution are designed to survive, and remain in force, in extraordinary times.”
The article goes on:
prisoners in the remote US jail in southern Cuba “have the constitutional privilege of habeas corpus.“
As such fantastic Constitutional scholars, the justices ought to know that Article
I, Section 9 of the Constitution says:
I can think of no better 18th-century synonym for “terrorists” than “rebels” or “invaders.” Preventing another 9/11 most definitely tops the agenda for “public safety.”
The privilege of the writ of habeas corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in cases of rebellion or invasion the public safety may require it.
But of course our unelected masters know better than us.
