The Supreme Court on Monday declined to hear the next wave of appeals from Guantanamo detainees. The twin cases sought to overturn a provision of the Military Commissions Act that stripped detainees of the ability to challenge their detention in federal court. The move lets stand a D.C. Circuit decision that upheld the portion of the law dealing with habeas corpus. In denying review, Justices John Paul Stevens and Anthony Kennedy wrote that the detainees had not yet exhausted "available remedies."
