US v. UK

I don't know anything about the law, but these two new stories strike me as an interesting pair to show up within a few days:

1. UK votes to increase to the time that terrorist suspects can be detained without charge to 42 days.

2. Boumediene v. Bush supreme court decision that seems to give more rights to terrorist detainees.

Didn't realize the UK only held suspected terrorists for a month or so. The US has been holding suspected terrorists without charge for years. Guess they're both slowly moving toward the middle.
