A Great Day for America!

A Great Day for America!

Finally, the Supreme Court has ruled that 'enemy combatants' are entitled to have their day in court, and cannot be held incomunicado indefinitely.
Conservatives,neocons, etc., are upset, but I can't see why - the rule of law is what separates us (the good guys) from them (al-Quaida, etc.). If we abandon the Rule of Law in favor of expediency and claims that we will lose 'intelligence data', what separates us from Stalin, who locked people up in Siberia and murdered them with no attempt to prove their guilt, or court to find them guilty. For Bush to issue executive orders to keep people locked up with no trial puts him on par the bad guys.
I am surprised and pleased such a conservative court would rule the way it did; it's time to uphold the Constitution and Bill of Rights.
