A June 29, 2004, editorial in The Los Angeles Times said, regarding the Supreme Court’s rulings the previous day in Rasul v. Bush and Hamdi v. Rumsfeld: ” ‘It’s hard to see what is left of American freedom if the government has the authority to make anyone on its soil–citizen or non-citizen–disappear and then rule that no one can do anything about it.’ ”
