US Supreme Court looks at legality of detention of two US citizens held in South Carolina
This, like the deliberations last week concerning the detention of non-US citizens at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba will be, according to this article in the New York Times, of major importance in coming years in determining the limits (if any, in practise) of Presidential powers under the US Constitution. The Supreme Court Justices are projected to deliver their ruling(s) before the summer break. At a much less exalted level it may have some importance this coming November, too. We 'non-citizens' will be observing with great interest what is decided.
