In yesterday's Hamdan ruling, the court said the U.S. must abide by the strictest interpretations of the Geneva Accord, which is not kept by most other countries and is largely null and void. Yet, in these cases, the Court ruled otherwise--that an international treaty, the Vienna Convention, was not binding.
Ping to your attention.

Very interesting. Although, I'm sure the ACLU are busy filing more paperwork.

It's a bit murky, but since the Kennedy concurrence (joined in by three liberals) refused to base the decision on the Geneva Convention, it appears only Stevens agreed with that part of the opinion.

Hamdan was political on its very face. There is no basis in fact or law that the Geneva Convention applies to Gitmo "detainees", just that the Supremes say so.
All hail, mighty Supremes!
Doesn't it make you want to blow chunks?
