This paper outlines some current cases of human rights and the U.S. judicial system's failure to address violations. It looks at how the U.S. Supreme Court refuses to hear the cases of the prisoners held by the U.S. military at Guantanamo, while the Washington appeals court has also shunned them, leaving the prisoners with no international intervention to save them from their plight.

From the Paper:

"Ever since the Second World War, there has been greater focus on the way that people are treated during war. Not just during war, but even in times of peace under different regimes Democratic countries expect people to be treated fairly. Democratic countries believe that all nationalities, no matter what their consequences may be, are entitles to their rights. Even when people are accused of international terrorist acts they are still entitled to their rights as prisoners. Prisoners of war too have their rights, and providing them with these rights is considered a democratic practice, without which a country cannot really be a democratic one."
