Quotes-start.png "The new law has significantly overruled two Supreme Court decisions -- in 2004 (Rasul v. Bush) and 2006 (Hamdan v. Rumsfeld) -- concerning due-process rights, and treatment of detainees, under our War Crimes Act and the Geneva Conventions. It also greatly expanded the definition of "unlawful enemy combatants," with serious potential consequences for many legal immigrants in the United States -- and American citizens presumed to be terrorist suspects until they can prove otherwise."
