    Default Military Detention struck down

    Not getting into the political, only the constitutional.

    This issue was slipped through in December and caused much concern.

    I appreciate you posting the update. I had been following this to some extent. I was having a tough time making my mind up on it. The response from the judge leaves little doubt the government had some ulterior motives with it. The history with ambiguous contracts is the law rules against the author of the contract. Shouldn't the same be true with laws?

    This is a great first step in restoring some of our constitutional guarantees. We'll see how it gets handled through the appeals process (I'm not holding my breath). Interesting that the government lawyers wouldn't or couldn't defend their position by clarifying what types of activities were outside the scope of section 1021. Thanks for posting kyrat!
