Gulfstream Witnesses

At one point during today's oral arguments Justice Scalia asked if a Gulfstream jet ought to be sent to Aghanistan to retrieve witnesses for possible hearings on the legality of the detention of persons alleged to be enemy combatants.

I was under the impression that the US. military still has some transport aircraft of its own. Be that as it may, do you agree with J. Scalia that the thought that aircraft should be used to procure the attendance of witnesses at hearings in which human liberty is at stake is absurd? (The answer depends on your priorities, I suppose.)
