Not So Fast . . .

The D.C. Circuit has held that Guantanamo Bay detainees cannot challenge their detention in the US courts, in accordance with the Military Commissions Act, passed by Congress last year.

Funny how the linked CNN piece calls the Act "President Bush's anti-terrorism law" and then identifies it as legislation "Bush pushed through Congress last year," isn't it? After all, once a bipartisan majority of Congress signs onto it, is it really just President Bush's anti-terrorism law?
