FILE PHOTO OF US MILITARY ESCORTING DETAINEE TO CELL AT XRAY NAVAL BASE.
U.S. Supreme Court justices on April 20, 2004 sharply questioned the U.S. President George W. Bush administration's detention of enemy combatants at what their lawyer termed a "lawless enclave" at Guantanamo Bay without access to the courts, in the first big legal test of the war on terrorism. The justices seemed deeply divided over whether Bush had the legal authority to order the indefinite holding of foreign citizens captured abroad while denying them the right to challenge their detention in court.
