They just legalized corporate torture.

As long as the torture is in the country of "others".

How long before they extend that to here?

Isn't that nice of them?

So America cannot protect its own citizens when they travel abroad?

It's to protect the corporate citizen. To hell with the rest of us.

If you read the opinions completely, they are following correct interpretation of the law "as written". We all agree that the issue is tragic, but put the correct blame on congress for writing a limited law in the first place. A unanimous decision was the correct ruling here.

I'm surprised it was unanimous.
