Supreme Court cojones

The Supreme Court just struck down the Gitmo kangaroo courts. The NY Times article:

In typical recent fashion, the opinion appears to be a hodge podge of concurrences, partial joinders, and dissent (Clarence Thomas read his dissent from the bench, a first in his 15 years on the Court, just to affirm how much he buys into the Administration's bullshit on the WAR ON TERROR.) And Justice Roberts had to recuse himself, since he had backed the Administration in the lower courts.

Still, it's a huge victory for human rights, and huge rebuke to President Bush. Is our long national nightmare coming to an end? Probably not, but savor the justice done today.
