The problem with your observation is I didn't miss the last two paragraphs Squire. The words to pay attention to is "the court considered". If the court is considering something of this nature it's usually considering something the government wants to do. So the take away is Matt's government wants the power. The court said no, this time. One big pretext and Matt can say goodbye to what little is left of his freedom. If the "court found" that indefinite detention of individuals would violate international law then how can Obama do it? My opinion follows and mine is backed up by reams of evidence. The west isn"t in a war with Salafists at all. One does not fight a war by funding and arming the enemy and using them as proxy fighters to overthrow other governments. The west is at war with Russia and China and using the Salafists to create an area of instability in Eurasia. See the Grand Chessboard. Of course you got the government and corporate media's word that the west if at war with Salafists but the evidence doesn't line up with it and you also have the knowledge that govt lies and the media sticks to it.
