Federal Judge Rules Against Military Tribunals

NPR reports:  "A federal judge says the U.S. government must provide detainees in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, with a fair opportunity to challenge their incarceration. Judge Joyce Hens Green says Defense Department hearings do not satisfy last year's Supreme Court ruling on the matter. The ruling is a setback for the government, but the detainees may face a long legal battle before they get what they want."  Obtain the written opinion and listen to NPR report here.  [Mark Godsey]
