ABSTRACT
The article presents a legal analysis on the Boumediene vs. Bush case and it's part to the separation-of-powers principles between the Congress and the Supreme Court in the U.S. It mentions that the Congress issued a Military Commissions Act (MCA) which deprived the Supreme Court to hear claims particularly habeas corpus during the September 11, 2001 terrorists attacked. It notes that Framers designed the constitutional structure to guarantee that no branch would accumulate too much power.
