HOLT STATEMENT ON SUPREME COURT DECISION ON MILITARY TRIBUNALS FOR GUANTANAMO, OTHER DETAINEES

Rep. Rush Holt (D-NJ) today issued the following statement regarding the Supreme Court's 5-3 decision that President Bush overstepped his authority in ordering military war crimes trials for Guantanamo Bay detainees:

"This decision affirms the principle that we not only have a responsibility to protect the people of America, but we have an obligation to do it in honorable, constitutional ways, even during wartime. This is a victory for the rule of law, a basic American value."
