Parent Node: Node refutes parent assertion  Habeus corpus has been suspended during times of national crisis.
Node Text: The current war on terror is not the type of crisis that warrants suspension of habeus corpus.

Some prisoners have been sitting at guantanmo bay for 5-6 years. At what point will their status change? When the war on terror is over? During this time, these prsioners could have been given a hearing to determine whether or not their imprisonment was warranted. To argue that they do not deserve legal representation and a hearing, is to put total faith in the government to do the right thing. Such blind faith is foolish.
