Imagine You Are A Federal Judge

....then imagine that you are a complete boob.

But I repeat myself.

Today, a district court judge in D.C. applied the Supreme Court's ridiculous reasoning in last year's Boumediene v. Bush to extend constitutional habeas rights to three [COMBATANT] aliens captured by the military during a war and held in a war-zone.


Evidently the jurist spent FAR too much time watching "Hogan's Heroes" during his extended childhood.

OTOH, Ace half-suspects that the District judge was triple-dog-daring SCOTUS to re-visit Boumediene--that is, that he's tossing it in their faces.

Either way, Obama & Co. will appeal this.
