One of Those "Good News, Bad News" Things 

The good news: A court of national jurisdiction has ruled that the Executive has overstepped its authority by imprisoning suspects in terrorism cases indefinitely and without charge. According to the court, "[i]ndefinite imprisonment without charge or trial is anathema in any country which observes the rule of law."

The bad news: The court in question sits in Great Britain. Sigh.
