Ali Al-Marri Violated Of Constitutional Rights

The Justice Department says it will fight a Federal Appeals Panel decision that struck down a key element of President Bush's war on terror.

The court ruled the Administration cannot continue to hold a legal U.S. resident suspected of terrorism without charging him.

The case involves legal U.S. resident Ali Al-Marri, who has been in custody since December 2001, labeled by the Government an "enemy combatant" for his alleged ties to Al-Qaida.

The court said detaining him without charges violates his Constitutional Rights.
