Attorneys presented oral arguments in the case of Hamdi v. Rumsfeld which focused on the detention of American citizens captured in hostilities overseas and classified an enemy combatant. At issue were the habeas corpus provisions of the Constitution and a citizen’s rights to a hearing upon detention. Mr. Hamdi had been taken into U.S. custody as an enemy combatant in Afghanistan in 2001 and was being held in a military facility in the U.S.

This program contained audio released by the Supreme Court immediately after the arguments were presented to the court with still images of participants as they spoke. Justice Thomas was present but did not ask any questions. close
