It will be interesting to see if the message from the US Supreme Court to our warriors today is interpreted as, "Take no prisoners."
The law of unintended consequences can be cruel. Meanwhile, the clear-thinking Justice Scalia writes in his 25 page dissent:
“The game of bait-and-switch that today’s opinion plays upon the Nation’s Commander in Chief will make the war harder on us. It will almost certainly cause more Americans to be killed. The Nation will live to regret what the Court has done today. I dissent.” -Justice Scalia, joined by Justices Thomas, Roberts and Alito
