This recorded video feed is from the July 31, 2008 hearing, "Supreme Court's Boumediene Decision for Detainees at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba: Administrative Perspectives," before the U.S. House of Representatives, Committee on Armed Services. From Daniel Dell'Orto's statement: "The Department of Defense is working diligently to satisfy the considerable litigation requirements stemming from the Supreme Court's decision in Boumediene v. Bush. The ramifications of that decision for the Department of Defense and our nation are significant. The Department already has experienced some of these ramifications while others are looming in the near future and still others are as yet unknown. As significant as Boumediene is, it is only one in a recent line of decisions that establish an unprecedented level of judicial involvement in matters historically and, in the Department's view, appropriately, reserved to military professionals, including decisions on whom to detain as enemy combatants in an ongoing armed conflict." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Daniel Dell'Orto, Acting General Counsel, Department of Defense; Greg Katsas, Assistant Attorney General, Department of Justice, and Colonel Steve David, USA, Chief Defense Counsel, Office of Military Commissions, Department of the Army.
