“Hapless Foot Soldier” Follow-Up

You’ll never believe this. Some of those “Hapless Foot Soldiers” the NYTimes supposes we should never have detained at Guantanamo Bay in the first place are back on the battlefield shooting at American soldiers. Question: if one of them gets surrounded by our troops in one of those places where the Supreme Court says we have the kind of de facto control that extends the jurisdiction of the U.S. judiciary to the far corners of the galaxy, does he get to call time-out and file for habeas corpus before our guys can shoot back?
