Charles Whittaker Watch

- June 25, 2008

Over at PolySigh, I started the Charles Whittaker Watch to keep track of the increasingly wacky statements of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. The watch is named for Justice Charles Whittaker who resigned from the Court after suffering a nervous breakdown. You can check out other watch entries here, here, here, here, and here.

In our latest update, Justice Scalia claimed in his dissenting opinion in Boumediene v. Bush, “At least 30 of those prisoners hitherto released from Guantanamo Bay have returned to the battlefield.” It turns out that the battlefield now includes appearing in documentaries.
