Justices heard oral arguments in the cases of Boumediene v. Bush and Al Odah v. U.S. involving the rights of suspected terrorists held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and the detainee’s right to challenge their detention through a writ of habeas corpus. Attorneys for the government and 37 Guantanamo inmates focused on whether Congress had wrongly denied prisoners judicial review of their detention, or if Congress had created an adequate alternative for prisoners to contest their detention, and whether the Constitution protected the rights of foreigners held outside the country.

Photographs of the participants were shown on the screen as each person spoke. close
