Counterinsurgency Doctrine Supreme Court Decisions Terrorism Prosecutions

President Obama has said that Guantanamo “has damaged our national-security interests and become a tremendous recruiting tool for Al Qaeda."

In a series of cases -- beginning with Rasul v. Bush in June 2004, the Supreme Court, has made rulings in habeas corpus petitions and other motions filed on behalf of Guantanamo detainees.

Only a few Guantanamo detainees have ever been charged with any type of crime – whether a war crime, an international crime or a crime under any U.S. law. Rather, the detainees have been kept in detention at Guantanamo due to their status as (unlawful) enemy combatants.

 

For Law Schools, Colleges, and High Schools:

Educational Support Materials for the "The Response" and a DVD of the film are available from the Street Law organization: online or by calling 301-589-1130 ext. 220.
