The Supreme Court’s Jan. 12 decision not to review the cases of possibly thousands of detainees arrested after Sept. 11, 2001, represents an affront to civil liberties in this country. The Bush administration imprisoned these people (almost entirely Muslims and Arabs) in the name of national security, but their lengthy incarceration was both unwarranted and un-American and represents a failure of our judicial system.
