Hamdan Hyperbole

For a good summary of what yesterday's Supreme Court ruling really means, check out this Yahoo News article:

It does not:

Satisfy the supposed demands of "world opinion:" the closing of the Guantanamo Bay camp and the immediate release of its detainees.

Free Salim Ahmed Hamdan, the acknowledged driver and bodyguard for
Osama bin Laden.

Exclude Hamdan from a court martial or, if Congress decides, trail by a military tribunal...

Require that he, or other detainees, be tried before a civilian court, as some anti-war activists had demanded.

Read the whole thing before believing the hype.
