CNN breaking sez:

The Supreme Court rules President Bush overstepped his authority with military war crimes trials for foreigners held at Guantanamo Bay in a case involving a former driver for Osama bin Laden.

I'm not in front of a teevee so those who are can chime in with more details.

Of course, Bush has said he can do what he wants so who knows.

...Drudge sez 5-3 decision finding them "illegal under both military justice law and the Geneva Convention." I'm glad the Geneva Convention is in there, it's nice that the Court recognizes there is this bit about treaties being the supreme law of the land.
