On the Cert. Grants in Munaf and Omar

Apropos today's cert. grants in Munaf v. Geren and Geren v. Omar (HT: SCOTUSblog), I thought I'd provide a link to my most recent post on these cases, from this June, "Making Sense Out of the Iraqi Detention Cases."

I hope to have some more thoughts over the weekend on the significance of the grants, particularly in light of the facts that (1) Boumediene was conferenced today; and (2) both cases were granted, even though there are important distinctions between the two...
