This instead of the military, under court supervision, making such a determination - as directed by the considered judgments of an elected Congress and an elected President. As Roberts put it, Americans "today lose a bit more control over the conduct of this nation's foreign policy to unelected, politically unaccountable judges," a group that is hardly qualified to make life-and-death calls as to which prisoners are terrorists and which are simple goatherds, as they all claim to be."
