Laurence H. Tribe, a professor of constitutional law at Harvard, has written a piece in the TNR about military tribunals. The article is quite nuanced in its analysis, but I’ll attempt to summarize anyway. Tribe thinks that while military tribunals can be constitutional in wartime, Bush’s tribunals are flawed and must be revised by Congress to pass constitutional muster. He has no faith that the Supreme Court will strike down or revise the tribunals because they have a history of lining up behind the President in wartime, and because this court has already shown a willingness to favor decorum over the law by putting Bush in the White House. That summary is probably inadequate, but it’s the best I could do.
