That's very helpful, Eric. Thanks for writing it up.


"Thomas's Hamdi opinion cited Hirabayashi approvingly precisely for the legal proposition that the Court should not scrutinize the President's factual predicates for whatever wartime actions the President deems necessary. "

Which basically means that if Thomas' view of the law had prevailed, the President of the USA could detain, torture and likely kill any US citizen at will for the next several decades (i.e., until 2/3 of both houses of Congress voided the AUMF).
