Response to Divernan (Reply #106)

Thu Jul 11, 2013, 06:32 PM

107. A retired law professor who can't read a statute.

 

The section you quote does not refer to any particular Supreme Court case


It doesn't need to.

(e) AUTHORITIES.—Nothing in this section shall be construed to affect existing law or authorities relating to the detention of United States citizens, lawful resident aliens of the United States, or any other persons who are captured or arrested in the United States.


Not only Hamdan, but Boumediene would be undisturbed by this statute.

Unless you're going to argue that it's unclear whether "existing law or authorities" includes the Constitution as interpreted by the Supreme Court of the United States of America.

Lordy. You're arguing that Boumediene has effectively been overruled based on absolutely nothing but your own hot air.

Pretend for a moment that you're representing a detainee and the government tries to deny habeas. Would you really sit there and shrug your shoulders and say "the NDAA overruled Boumediene. You're screwed?"
