Bush Administration Wins Court Victory on Guantánamo Detentions

Date: March 11, 2003
QUOTE: A federal appeals panel ruled unanimously that prisoners from the Afghanistan war held in Guantánamo Bay may not challenge their detentions in federal court.

ABSTRACT: A federal appeals panel decided that sixteen Guantanamo Bay detainees may not challenge their detentions because they are not U.S. citizens and have never enter U.S. territory. Critics hail the ruling as another victory for the U.S. government in its aggressive fight against terrorism, often at the expense of civil liberties.
