The activities at Guantanamo Bay presented a challenge to American law, in that there was clearly a denial of habeas corpus, the right of a prisoner to be brought before a judge and to learn the charges on which he is held. The U.S. Constitution states that the right to habeas corpus can be suspended only when the public safety requires it as a result of rebellion or invasion. It has been very rarely suspended. Did the situation at Gitmo call for one of these rare suspensions?
