Supreme Court: Master of the Bleedin’ Obvious

29 06 2006

The Supreme Court ruled that Bush overstepped his authority by setting up military tribunals for the detainees at Guantanamo Bay. The tribunals, which often exclude the accused from the trial or from even knowing what the evidence against them is, apparently violate both US law and international Geneva Conventions.

Thank god we have a supreme court. But I just wish we didn’t have to waste their time with such obvious cases as this. I think a good rule of thumb for any government is: if there’s any doubt about how legal it is under the Geneva Conventions, DON’T DO IT.

Now that that is settled, let’s send Bush to the ICC and try him for crimes against humanity.
