he Supreme Court agreed Friday to decide whether the president may order that people picked up in the United States be detained indefinitely and without criminal charges.
The court is undertaking a fresh review of the Bush administration's aggressive use of preventive detention for suspected terrorists. The administration asserts that the president has the authority to order the military to detain anyone suspected of being an al-Qaida member.
The administration's policy is being challenged by Ali al-Marri, a Qatar native who was seized in the United States and is the only enemy combatant currently being held on U.S. soil. The government says al-Marri is an al-Qaida sleeper agent.
Al-Marri, represented by the American Civil Liberties Union, says he cannot be imprisoned without charge or trial. He was arrested in Peoria, Ill.
Al-Marri has been held in virtual isolation in a Navy brig near Charleston, S.C., for nearly 5 1/2 years.

Now remind me again why a War President, empowered with the Majikal Special Ring Act, is not allowed to detain anyone he wants for as long as he wants?????
No Seriously, clearly the Founding Fathers understood that when the Majikal Special Ring Act was activated, there was but One Ring, and the War President was BOUND to obey the obligations of the One Ring!!!
oh who really cares any more....
No, really, the Radical Judicial Activists on the Supreme Court engaging in their Radical Left Wing Legislating from the Bench will merely embark on more radical left wing extremism!!! I mean, is anyone really expecting that they will accept that while it may be truish, that Obama was elected to be President, this does not make him a War President, and that Dubya, empowered by Congress with the Majikal Special Ring Act, will STILL be the War President, and oliged to weild the War Wring of Wonderment!!!
You know, to slay the Evil Liberals and their fellow travellor Trogs of Wall Street, and bring about the Permenant Capital Gains Tax Cuts to prevent Gay HomoZeXual Marriages from being used as an excuse to limit the authority and majikal powers of a War President, even if the Stab the Troops in the Back Civilians
opted to elect some civilian to the office of mere President...
