Missing Something

Someone is missing something. It is either me and understanding, or it is Antonin Scalia and a conscience.

“This court has never held,” Justice Scalia wrote, “that the Constitution forbids the execution of a convicted defendant who had a full and fair trial but is later able to convince a habeas court that he is ‘actually’ innocent.”

If any of you with a substantial knowledge of the legal system can explain to me why he doesn't mean what I think he means, please do. Otherwise, I am hereby unable to reconcile my baseline for the term justice with that of a member of the United States Supreme Court.
