SCOTUS Kills Habeas Corpus

SCOTUS has just declined to take all seven of the pending Gitmo habeas corpus petitions, including Latif and Uthman.

This effectively kills habeas corpus.

Consider what SCOTUS just blessed:

  • Holding a person indefinitely for being in the wrong place at the wrong time–including a school, a road, and a guest house–where suspect people are.
  • Holding a person indefinitely based on an admittedly error-ridden report the government wrote up itself.
  • Holding a person indefinitely based on pattern analysis.
  • Completely upending the role of District Court judges in the fact-finding process.

emptywheel @JJGomez127 Oh, he EXISTED. But was he who we said he was, especially after we killed (IIRC) his kid?

emptywheel @JJGomez127 Also generally. If he was a bogeyman but we didn't notice when he died what does that mean?

emptywheel If a terrorist commander dies in a hospital and no one notices did it really happen? Did he ever really exist?
