President to unveil proposal on Guantanamo detainees

From Al-Reuters 

President Bush plans to unveil proposed legislation on Wednesday to set a structure for conducting trials of foreign terrorism suspects held at Guantanamo Bay, White House officials said.

The Supreme Court in June rejected as illegal the military tribunal system set up by the Bush administration to try Guantanamo prisoners, most of whom were captured in Afghanistan.

The court said the tribunals — an alternative legal system — lacked congressional authorization and did not meet U.S. military or international justice standards.

How long before the ACLU and CAIR try and block this proposal as well?
