Court Says US Can Hold Islamic Nutjobs

If I had the time (getting ready for vacation!!!!!), I’d do a dumpster dive, but, we’ll take the left wing seething as read (NY Times)

President Bush has the legal power to order the indefinite military detentions of civilians captured in the United States, the federal appeals court in Richmond, Va., ruled on Tuesday in a fractured 5-to-4 decision.

Got that? President Bush. Not the United States of America in its fight against extremist Islam. President Bush.

But a second, overlapping 5-to-4 majority of the court, the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, ruled that Ali al-Marri, a citizen of Qatar now in military custody in Charleston, S.C., must be given an additional opportunity to challenge his detention in federal court there. An earlier court proceeding, in which the government had presented only a sworn statement from a defense intelligence official, was inadequate, the second majority ruled.

OK, fine, let him challenge it. Then, when they realize he is a stone cold Islamic terrorist, send him back to Gitmo.
