Mukasey Says Despite Supreme Court Decision, Gitmo Trials Will Continue


U.S. Attorney General Michael Mukasey says the Supreme Court's decision on Guantanamo detainees won't affect military trials against enemy combatants.

Mukasey, speaking Friday at a Group of Eight meeting of justice and home affairs ministers, said he was disappointed with the decision.

But he told reporters it won't affect military trials to be held at the U.S. naval facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

The Bush administration has been ignoring the concept of equal branches of government and oversight for 7 1/2 years, why stop now? Habeas Corpus? C'mon, that's not for those swarthy Middle Eastern types.
