What hath the Supreme Court wrought?

I have printed out the three lengthy opinions issued by the Supreme Court in the detention cases today and will be studying them over the next few days to prepare for an appearance as guest host on the Minnesota public television program Face to Face this coming Sunday with University of Minnesota Law School Professors Jim Chen and Guy Charles.
I hesitate to say anything about the opinions until I have studied them, although I expressed my trepidations about what the Court would do in a post (“The sixth sense,” also published on FrontPage as “Rights for detainees?”) that appears prescient in retrospect. For readers who want to sort things out for themselves with some educated guidance, I recommend Larry Solum’s excellent round-up on Solum’s Legal Theory Blog. (Courtesy of Instapundit.)
