US top court rejects Guantanamo military tribunals

WASHINGTON - In a major blow for President George W. Bush’s war on terrorism, the US Supreme Court ruled on Thursday that the military tribunal system set up to try Guantanamo prisoners violates the Geneva Conventions and US military rules.


“We conclude that the military commission convened to try (Salim Ahmed) Hamdan lacks power to proceed because its structure and procedures violate” the international agreement that covers treatment of prisoners of war, as well as US military rules, Justice John Paul Stevens wrote for the court majority in the 5-3 decision

So, now we must just wait for the Indictments to start coming down for actively pursuing unlawful policies... that's a law, you know. (It's called "command responsibility") But then again, how often do those in charge actually have to take responsibility?
