What do you know, I don’t agree with the Supreme Court

The Constitution, states, “The Privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in Cases of Rebellion or Invasion the public Safety may require it.”

I believe the question before the court was should habeas corpus have been suspended in relation to these prisoners — or was 9/11 a case of rebellion or invasion of the public safety? And was the Military Commissions Act of 2006 constitutional?

Another question would be, how is it a person who is not a citizen of the U. S. comes under the protection of the Constitution? When we say “our Constitutional Rights”, I don’t think that includes everybody on the planet, especially our enemies.

“The petition (for habeas corpus) must show that the court ordering the detention or imprisonment made a legal or factual error. The right of habeas corpus is the constitutionally bestowed right of a person to present evidence before a court that he or she has been wrongly imprisoned.”

Question: Who bestowed on these guys, who are not American citizens, the rights of the Constitution?

I do not agree with the Supreme Court decision. But then five great minds have spoken.
