Habeas Corpus

Call me cynical, but why can I not help thinking that this is happening now (really, happening at all) because the administration needs to say, "hey, we're winning!", in addition to avoiding a ruling that their detention of Padilla was illegal. I don't know about you, but I abhor the thought of habeas corpus being honored only when it's politically expedient to do so. It shouldn't be this way, and if the Bush administration had any respect for the law and the Constitution, it wouldn't be.
The privilege of the writ of habeas corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in cases of rebellion or invasion the public safety may require it.
