Guantanamo Prisoners May Appeal Before Civilian Judges

Today it the U.S. Supreme Court spun around on an April decision to deny prisoners in Guantanamo Bay access to civilian courts. Hundreds of prisoners will soon have the opportunity to be heard before federal judges, appealing unjust confinement and treatment within the prisons that borders on “cruel and unusual.”

This decision is a major reversal for Bush’s administration, which has been unyielding in its attempts to classify Guantanamo detainees as prisoners of war.
