Facing the prospect of a Supreme Court battle, the Bush administration has granted a US citizen the right to an attorney. Perhaps someone should give Mr. Bush a dictionary open to the entry for 'inalienable'. The Toronto Star reports: The administration of George W. Bush reversed course last night, saying a U.S. citizen jailed after being captured with Taliban soldiers in Afghanistan would be allowed access to a lawyer. Government officials had argued for more than a year that Yaser Esam Hamdi, being held in Charleston, was not entitled to counsel after they had designated him an "enemy combatant." The change in policy comes on the eve of a government filing due today at the U.S. Supreme Court, which had been asked by a federal public defender in Virginia to review Hamdi's detention.
