I'm not a lawyer. And I don't have the time to even begin to wade through yesterday's decision on Hamdan v. Rumsfeld. One of my favorite takes on it, so far, comes from Anonymous Liberal, who basically says:
- David Addington's head is almost certainly exploding right now
- "The Hamdan decision represents, in [AL's] opinion, a fatal blow to the Addington/Yoo theory of executive power."
- SCOTUS judges are not as stupid as Senators Graham and Kyl think they are
We've already heard that Congress will act to pass some kind of justification for Bush's little military tribunals. But in the meantime, I'm particularly interested in how this ruling will affect our practices of torture.
