Why We’re Still the Good Guys

As lawyers argue before the Supreme Court to try to get Gitmo prisoners habeus corpus, protesters outside voice their support.

“Restore habeas corpus!” they intoned, referring to the right to court review of the legality of detention, the heart of the argument before the high court.

Compare with what the protesters voiced their support for in the Teddy Muhammad case.

Protesters shouted: “No tolerance: execution” and “Kill her, kill her by firing squad”.

Notice which side of this divide the Bush Administration on.
