Tyranny or Rule of Law at Stake in Al-Marri Case

#333399">Update#333399">: ">Supreme Court to Hear Indefinite Detention Case, Al-Marri v. Pucciarelli

A small band of lawyers remain diligently at work fighting for a Supreme Court win in Al-Marri v. Pucciarelli that would answer a huge question for our democracy: Whether we are a tyranny or a country where the rule of law, due process, and habeas corpus reign supreme.

Typical of today&;s Republican Party, the GOP has come down on the anti-liberty side of the argument.

From the ">Brennan Center:

Question Presented – Does the Executive have legal authority to detain a legal resident arrested in the United States without charge by declaring him an &;enemy combatant&;? This case challenges the President’s assertion of unchecked executive detention power over all individuals in the United States.
