Federal Appeals court shoots down ‘enemy combatant’ label on a detainee

I could of found a better word than ’shoots’ probably, but none the less this is an important ruling. From McClatchy:

A federal appeals court for the first time has rejected the military’s designation of a Guantanamo detainee as an enemy combatant.

A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit overturned as “invalid” a military tribunal’s conclusion that prisoner Huzaifa Parhat is an enemy combatant.

The court directed the Pentagon either to release or transfer Parhat or to hold a new tribunal hearing “consistent with the court’s opinion.”

The status review tribunal is bullshit. The whole military tribunal is bullshit. With the SCOTUS ruling recently and now this from last month, which went largely ignored by the MSM, the courts seem to be slowly chipping away at BushCo’s kangaroo court. There are still 270 people being held at Guantanamo.
