More on the Military Commissions Act
At the Volokh Conspiracy, Jonathan non-Alder points to the John Yoo op-ed which
…argues that Congress sent a message to the Supreme Court with the passage of the Military Commissions Act: Mind your own business and leave the war on terror alone. In this regard, Yoo argues, the law was, above all else, a “stinging rebuke” to the Supreme Court, particularly insofar as it limited federal court jurisdiction over certain claims.
Alder also points to Marty Lederman’s response, “John Yoo on Court Stripping.” I’d like to add pointers to Kip Esquire’s much simpler and cleaner argument, “Does The MCA ‘Reverse’ The Supreme Court,” and my own, “These aren’t the civil liberties you’re looking for.”
