The article focuses on efforts by the administration of U.S. President George W. Bush to expand executive power. The U.S. Supreme Court case "Hamdan v. Rumsfeld" in June 2006 limited presidential authority by rejecting the legality of military tribunals for prisoners in Guantanamo Bay. According to the article, the "unitary executive" theory was developed in the Office of Legal Council at the justice department under President Ronald Reagan.
