Supreme Court Expands Review of U.S. War on Terror

The U.S. Supreme Court on Friday expanded its review of the Bush administration's war on terror when it agreed to hear the case of a U.S.-born man captured during the fighting in Afghanistan and held incommunicado and without charges.

The justices said they would consider the appeal from Yaser Esam Hamdi, whom the U.S. government has labeled an enemy combatant ineligible for ordinary legal protections and a danger to the United States.
