Supreme Court ruling verifies Bush Impeachment Article XVII on unconstitutional detention

The Impeachment of GW Bush is a slam dunk case.

How much more verification of the charges do we need? Any one of the 35 Articles are grounds for Impeachment. The Supreme Court agrees:

AP: The Supreme Court ruled Thursday that foreign terrorism suspects held at Guantanamo Bay have rights under the Constitution to challenge their detention in U.S. civilian courts. The justices handed the Bush administration its third setback at the high court since 2004 over its treatment of prisoners who are being held indefinitely and without charges at the U.S. naval base in Cuba.

Justice Anthony Kennedy, writing for the court, said, "The laws and Constitution are designed to survive, and remain in force, in extraordinary times." The court said not only that the detainees have rights under the Constitution, but that the system the administration has put in place to classify them as enemy combatants and review those decisions is inadequate.
Human rights groups have blasted Gitmo. There is ample evidence for torture. This year's Oscar Award winning documentary Taxi to the Dark Side chronicles the Bush Administration's policy of torture and rendition which apply to Impeachment Articles XVII, XVIII, XIX, and XX.
