    The admiral in charge of the Guantanamo military detention center said he doubts Thursday’s Supreme Court ruling on presidential authority will have any effect on his operations. But a Bush administration lawyer wasn’t as sanguine, saying about the decision, “It’s very broad, it’s very significant, and it’s a slam.”

    Washington Post: Court Ruling a Body Blow to Bush

    In an analysis, the Washington Post says, “the Supreme Court has struck at the core of his presidency and dismissed the notion that the president alone can determine how to defend the country.”

    George Bush, the Alcoholic (Pt. 4)

    Yahoo! health columnist Patrick Moore continues his five-part series on what he terms President Bush’s “untreated alcoholism.”

  • Today’s update: “Mr. Bush lives by the creed, ‘Stay the Course!’  But that course is disastrous on everything from the environment to health care to education to national security. He is like a drunk who insists on driving even as the passengers in the car scream, ‘Stop!  For God’s sake, stop!’ ”

    ‘Egyptian Brokeback Mountain’ Marks Liberalization of Muslim Culture

    Specifically, today’s Supreme Court ruling held that the president overstepped his authority in ordering military war crimes trials for Guantanamo Bay detainees.

  • But more important, Think Progress interprets the ruling to mean that “the Authorization for the Use of Military Force—issued by Congress in the days after 9/11—is not a blank check for the administration.”
  • Also, SCOTUSblog says the ruling means that the Geneva Convention does apply to the conflict with Al Qaeda, and consequently “this almost certainly means that the CIA’s interrogation tactics of waterboarding and hypothermia (and others) violate the War Crimes Act.”
