Damn Graham

Seems like Senator Lindsay Graham is introducing an Amendment that would strip those designated by the Administration as enemy combatants of the ability to seek habeas review in federal courts. Basically, this is an end-run around the Supreme Court's decision in Rasul v. Bush which held Guantanamo detainees have the right to challenge the legality of their detentions. Amazing, particularly in light of the fact that the big supremes just decided to take a case likely to break his way anyhow.
