A lengthy argument in Medellin

As reports from SCOTUSblog and the AP highlight, the Medellin case argued today before the Supreme Court gave the Justices plenty to think (and talk) about.  The full transcript of today's oral argument is available here, and it runs 40 pages longer than most.

UPDATE:  Diverse reviews of the argument from Orin Kerr, Dahlia Lithwick and Tony Mauro all suggest that the eventual opinion in Medellin is likely to be a very interesting read.
