Kiyemba vacated

Well the good news is that today the Supreme Court vacated the DC Circuit Court ruling in the Kiyemba case. The bad news is that the Guantanamo prisoners have a meaningless right to Habeas Review.
It is meaningless because the Judge's cannot order release here in the United States.
So, we....(the habeas counsel and our clients)...have come full circle... sort of: The Supreme Court said yes...our clients are entitled to have an attorney and a review of their status...yes they are entitled to habeas corpus....but "no comment" on whether a federal court can ORDER their release.
If you did not throw your pen up in the air and should have.
