Extra Listening on Israel and Guantanamo

Extra Listening on Israel and Guantanamo

Today the Supreme Court has blocked Guantanamo military tribunals, condemning the Bush Administration’s detention policy. We discussed the future of the prison in March on A Guantanamo Exit Strategy, and in May we considered the interpretation of presidential power on The White House Lawyers.

The Israeli army has occupied parts of Gaza, arresting Palestinian members of parliament, and knocking out bridges and power plants in an effort to recover a soldier held hostage. We covered the election of Hamas, and then asked what would happen now that Israel is face-to-face with Hamas.
