High Court Asked to Take Guantanamo Case

Promising news from the AP on how John Roberts will come down on at least one issue. Chalk one up in the "conservative" column:

Lawyers for a Guantanamo detainee asked the Supreme Court on Monday to consider blocking military tribunals for terror suspects, and overturn what they called an extreme ruling by high-court nominee John Roberts.

Roberts was on a three-judge federal appeals court panel that last month ruled against Salim Ahmed Hamdan, a Yemeni who once was al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden's driver.

Osama's driver = military tribunal. The math is pretty simple on that one.
