Supreme Court to Gitmo Detainees: Drop Dead

Gerard N. Magliocca

Not quite, but pretty much.  The Court has apparently decided to outsource the resolution of these habeas petitions to the DC Circuit, which is (depending on your point of view) either ignoring Boumediene or giving that opinion a very narrow reading.  All of the cert. petitions from detainees were denied today.

The President, by the way, also doesn't talk about closing Gitmo anymore. That was so 2008.
