Supreme Court 6-29-2006
Did President George W. Bush overstep his boundaries in conducting tribunals for enemy combatants held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba?

The US Supreme Court ruled 5 to 3 that he did.

Justice John Paul Stevens said 'the proposed trials were illegal under U.S. law and international Geneva conventions.'

Justice Clarence Thomas dissented stating the court's decision would "sorely hamper the president's ability to confront and defeat a new and deadly enemy."
