Scalia
Thomas dissented from the plurality's ruling that citizens of the U.S. designated as enemy combatants by the Executive Branch had the right to challenge their detention. Thomas, the only member of the Court to fully adopt the government's position, argued that the Court should defer to the broad war-making powers of the President, particularly in light of the important security interests at stake in the War on Terror.
