The Supreme Court gets it right:

The Supreme Court today rejected appeals by detainees held at Guantanamo Bay, declining to hear their cases challenging the validity of a military commissions law passed last year and the legality of their confinement for more than five years without charge or trial.

The decision not to hear the appeals represented a victory for the Bush administration in its efforts to keep terrorism suspects captured abroad out of U.S. civilian courts. But the Supreme Court cautioned that it could reconsider its jurisdiction over such cases if other remedies prove inadequate.
