Thomas Speaks . . .

And, alas, Thomas actually spoke from the bench. What did he say on this momentous event:

He said that the ruling would "sorely hamper the president's ability to confront and defeat a new and deadly enemy."

Wow, a revelation! I have never heard such sage words before. Do the RNC talking points get faxed to the SCOTUS folks?

While I am grateful for this ruling, I am sick and tired of the particular reasoning in defense of military tribunals, illegal surveillance programs and torture that argues we need to give maximum power to the President to fight terrorists. The terrorists have already won when this administration thumbs its nose at the international law, federal law, the Consitution, and, let's not forget, morality.
