ABSTRACT
The article examines the potential impact of the decision of the U.S. Supreme in the case of Lakhdar Boumediene, a Bosnian-Algerian national who was arrested by local Bosnian police on suspicion of plotting an attack on the U.S. embassy in Sarajevo in late 2001, on about 265 current detainees at Guantánamo Bay in Cuba as of 2008. A brief overview of habeas corpus and its application during times of war is provided. It also references a new functional test and makes use of the test factors to the facts in the case.
