SCOTUS Hears Guantanamo Bay Case

Supreme Court justices fired questions at both sides today as they took up the case of whether Guantanamo Bay detainees are entitled to civilian court hearings.

   Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Antonin Scalia questioned whether the detainees are entitled to hearings.
