The 9/11 terror cases : constitutional challenges in the war against Al Qaeda by Allan A Ryan( Book )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 460 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The terrorist attacks of 9/11 are indelibly etched into our cultural memory. This is the story of how the legal ramifications of that day brought two presidents, Congress, and the Supreme Court into repeated confrontation over the incarceration of hundreds of suspected terrorists and "enemy combatants" at the US naval base in Guantanamo, Cuba. Could these prisoners (including an American citizen) be held indefinitely without due process of law? Did they have the right to seek their release by habeas corpus in US courts? Could they be tried in a makeshift military judicial system? With Guantanamo well into its second decade, these questions have challenged the three branches of government, each contending with the others, and each invoking the Constitution's separation of powers as well as its checks and balances. In The 9/11 Terror Cases, Allan A. Ryan leads students and general readers through the pertinent cases: Rasul v. Bush and Hamdi v. Rumsfeld, both decided by the Supreme Court in 2004; Hamdan v. Bush, decided in 2006; and Boumediene v. Bush, in 2008. An eloquent writer and an expert in military law and constitutional litigation, Ryan is an adept guide through the nuanced complexities of these cases, which rejected the sweeping powers asserted by President Bush and Congress, and upheld the rule of law, even for enemy combatants. In doing so, as we see clearly in Ryan's deft account, the Supreme Court's rulings speak directly to the extent and nature of presidential and congressional prerogative, and to the critical separation and balance of powers in the governing of the United States"--

"Drawing directly from the tribunal's long-neglected transcripts, Ryan ... chronicles this tragic tale and its personalities.

Nuremberg's Contributions to International Law by Allan A Ryan( )

2 editions published in 2007 in Undetermined and English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Article explores the establishment of the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg beginning with the Moscow Declaration in 1943 and focusing on the Charter of the Tribunal in 1945, which, along with its charges, altered the course of international human rights law. Focusing on the way the Charter and its charges were devised, the author notes that the Tribunal’s existence was not a certainty after World War II and in fact it almost did not occur due to intense political debate that occurred in both domestic and international arenas. The Article argues that the creation of the Nuremberg Tribunal was the most significant development in human rights law in the twentieth century, as it has been used as the model for the tribunals established to deal with the horrors that occurred in Yugoslavia and Rwanda
