If only the Bankruptcy Bill applied to the Administration...

What happened to the Pottery Barn Powell Doctrine?

Out of Maryscott O'Connor via The Rude Pundit comes the final bell:
The Supreme Court rejected an appeal Monday from two Chinese Muslims who were mistakenly captured as enemy combatants more than four years ago and are still being held at the U.S. prison in Cuba....

Previously, a federal judge said the detention of the ethnic Uighurs in Guantanamo Bay is unlawful, but that there was nothing federal courts could do.

Lawyers for the two contend they should be released, something the Bush administration opposes, unless they can go to a country other than the United States.[emphasis mine]

So we captured innocent people--people we admit are innocent, beyond doubt reasonable or otherwise--but won't take responsibility for them, despite having imprisoned them for four years.

And the Supreme Court is fine with this.

Expect Canadian citizenship applications to skyrocket, espeically for those of us who, with 20 years of work experience in Financial Services and/or IT are preferred.
