Like the three most important considerations in real estate, whether or not the Obama administration fights for terrorism suspects’ habeas-corpus rights has everything to do with location, location, location:

The Obama administration said Friday that it would appeal a district court ruling that granted some military prisoners in Afghanistan the right to file lawsuits seeking their release. The decision signaled that the administration was not backing down in its effort to maintain the power to imprison terrorism suspects for extended periods without judicial oversight.

Somebody really owes George W. Bush an apology.
