They aren't good.

Supreme Court's decision in v. Bush, which extended American constitutional protections to the foreign fighters

The Supreme Court has now taken a central role in deciding who may be captured and detained

Legitimate prisoners of war in a future conventional conflict – who now receive less legal process than the detainees at Guantanamo – also can demand habeas proceedings. Thus, American forces, if they wish to be sufficiently certain of holding enemy prisoners anywhere in the world, must set about securing CSI-style evidence to satisfy the judges that their captives are indeed what they seem to be – enemies in arms against the United States.

will cost lives and impair combat effectiveness

the armed forces will be driven to a tragic "catch and release" policy.

Although many members of Congress (mostly Democrats hostile to Mr. Bush) have decried the detainees' fate at Gitmo, few have offered their states or districts as a suitable alternative, and chances are none will. Last July, a Senate resolution opposing transfer of Gitmo detainees "stateside into facilities in American neighborhoods" passed 94-3 (with Sen. Obama abstaining).

The detainees' lawyers may claim that they are mostly innocent aid workers

Look at that which supreme Liberal misplaced sympathies have wrought.

The answer of course is to simply stop taking prisoners and just kill them all on the battlefield. Maybe we should do the same with these traitorous Libs.
