im currently wading through SCOTUSblog atthe moment. yayyy. remember that he can still go back and ask congress for the proper authority, etc. but i doubt they'd give it.True, but that's already happened once before and it resulted in the Detainee Treatment Act. The DTA addressed the Court's concerns with Gitmo, at that time, pretty much to the letter. Yet, here we are today watching them find for Hamdan. Bush was even quoted earlier this week saying he was considering shutting down Gitmo pending the results of this case. I highly doubt he'll go back to Congress for new authority yet again and expect the result to be any different. To that end, even if he believed it might work this time I simply don't think he has the political capital to push something like that through without a major victory in the midterm elections.
