Supreme Court hears arguments on detainees

NPR's Morning Edition had a pretty solid feature this morning featuring audio of the White House's solicitor general making his case before the justices yesterday, and it's well worth a listen.

Justice Souter is all over the apparent contradictions in the government's case, and gets especially riled up over the attempts to rework habeas corpus.

Highly recommended.

UPDATE: Truthout is hosting an English translation of a Le Monde article about the Supreme Court hearings. See it here.
