McCain attacks Supreme Court's Guantánamo ruling
Presidential candidate John McCain jumped into the Guantanamo fray with his usual candor today as he criticized the Supreme Court's 5 to 4 ruling that terror suspects are entitled to the same right as American citizens. Yesterday I reported on this landmark Supreme Court ruling.
McCain, ever-feisty, isn't playing the campaign game here of mincing words. This should open up one heck of another round in the political brawl.
John McCain on Friday described the decision by the Supreme Court to allow Guantánamo Bay prisoners to challenge their detention in US courts as “one of the worst decisions in the history of this country”.
The Republican presidential candidate said he agreed with the four dissenting justices on the nine-member court that foreign fighters held at the detention camp were not entitled to the rights of US citizens.
