What the Supremes hath wrought

Two views to start off on what the Supreme Court's various rulings in yesterday's detention cases will mean.

First, here's Robert Alt decrying (six of) the Supremes' inability to read a statute in the Rasul case.

Next, the Wall Street Journal weighs in by noting that although the Supremes created some chaos, the effects of the rulings can be contained by legislation and the Supremes did not go all the way by nullifying the executive's right to detain the various prisoners in the ways that it did.
