Lawyers for those at Guantanamo Bay

Surprised nobody has reported this yet...

From the BBC website:

Double legal terror blow for Bush

The Bush administration has suffered two legal setbacks in its efforts to curtail the rights of those it accuses of being involved in terrorism.

A federal appeals court has ruled US authorities do not have the power to detain a US citizen seized on US soil as an "enemy combatant".

And a court said detainees being held by the US military at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba should have access to lawyers.

... (click BBC link for rest of article - MJ)
I hope these rulings will stand after appeal. Not to make a judgement whether those detained are innocent or not, but I do think that access to lawyers is a right they should have.

C ya!
