The fourth circuit court of appeals has handed down a ruling thoroughly eviscerating George Bush's theory of the unitary executive and upholding our constitutional protections and the rule of law. This is very good news. The conservative view of the unitary executive is completely at odds with our constitutional system and it is counter-productive to any security interests we citizens have. Granting the President nearly unlimited power to seize and detain American citizens does not serve to protect us in any way whatsoever. It can only serve to protect the personal interests of the person of the President, not of the nation or its people.

I recommend reading more detail about the case at Kos, and Hullabaloo.
