Habeas Corpus On Hold

"...it's of little use allowing people to challenge their executive detention in court, if the government can hold you for good reason, little reason, or almost no reason."
-Aziz Huq, Brennan Center for Justice-

Aziz Huq's article "Habeas Corpus Evaporating" explores the troubled state of this legal protection, from the United States' inheritance of the idea from the British legal system to its current derogation by the Bush administration (memorialized in President Bush's statement regarding Guantanamo). After reading Huq's article, check out The Guantanamobile Project, a fantastic site devoted to collecting documentation as part of a documentary project on this human rights nightmare.
