ABSTRACT
The article discusses the court case Boumediene versus Bush which focused on legal realism and the War on Terror. It says that the U.S. Supreme Court, on June 12, 2008, in Boumediene versus Bush, ruled 5-4 that suspected terrorist prisoners in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba have a common law right to the writ of habeas corpus. It reports that the court also ruled that the Combatant Status Review Tribunal procedures presently in place are not enough substitutes for this most basic right.
