“On November 10, 2001, [Vice President Dick] Cheney chaired a small group at the White House that authorized the president [Bush] to detain anyone who had ‘engaged in, aided or abetted, or conspired to commit acts of international terrorism.’ Those detainees were not presumed to be innocent nor were they entitled to a public trial.”
