8. WTF!?

"The majority opinion says there's nothing in law granting them rights to sue Rumsfeld or others in the line of military command. It says subjecting those in the command chain to such lawsuits could hamper military effectiveness."

Nothing in the law? How about torture being a felony and punishable by death?
And hampering military effectiveness? Since when is that a legal reason to prevent a lawsuit?
