AND THE ANSWER IS...:

Supreme Court refuses case on Guantanamo detainees and torture (Warren Richey, December 14, 2009, CS Monitor)

The US Supreme Court declined on Monday to take up a major case examining whether Guantánamo detainees enjoy a constitutional right not to be subject to torture and other harsh tactics by government officials.

The appeal, filed on behalf of four former prisoners who were returned home to Britain in 2004, sought to gain a clear statement from America’s highest court on the scope of legal protections for those held at the US detention camp in Guantánamo Bay, Cuba.
...they, like our Nazi POWs, have none.
