'Nuff said

(Taking context-optional note of thought-provoking quotes)

Thus, at least for now, extension of the writ to overseas detention has stopped at Guantánamo.

-- Faiza Patel (left), Director of Planning and Counsel at the Brennan Center for Justice, New York University School of Law. The sentence concludes her ASIL Insight analysis of the Bagram-related decision last month in Maqaleh v. Gates (D.C. Cir. 2010), about which IntLawGrrls guest/alumna Daphne Eviatar also posted. A Supreme Court nose count is the basis of Patel's prediction that the decision -- which she terms "striking" for its emphasis on the decades-old Johnson v. Eisentrager (U.S. 1950), rather than the recent Boumediene v. Bush (U.S. 2008) -- will stand for the time being.
