Limits on presidential powers, wha??

The Telegraph: Guantanamo Trials
who knew that the president does have to work within certain limits., well aparently the supreme court still knew. They said he overstepped his bounds when he ordered war crimes trials for the prisoners of guantanamo bay. But the flip side is that the military is saying that its not going to make much difference either way. Im not exactly sure how to take that but ill assume its bad for the prisoners. And if its bad for the prisoners then its bad for our standing in the world community. reuters: ruling to have little impact But at least its a good sign that although the court is now stacked with conservatives it is still going to tell the president that he is wrong when needed.
