The emerging law of detention the Guantánamo habeas cases as lawmaking by Benjamin Wittes( )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"President Obama's decision not to seek additional legislative authority for detentions at Guántanamo Bay, Cuba--combined with Congress's lack of interest in the task--means that, for good or for ill, judges must write the rules governing military detention of terrorist suspects. As the United States reaches the president's self-imposed January 22, 2010 deadline for Guantanamo's closure with the base still holding nearly 200 detainees, the common-law process of litigating their habeas corpus lawsuits has emerged as the chief legislative mechanism for doing so."--Exec. summary (p.1)

A statutory framework for next-generation terrorist threats by Robert Chesney( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Since September 18, 2001, a joint resolution of Congress known as the Authorization to Use Military Force (AUMF) has served as the primary legal foundation for the "war on terror." In this essay we explain why the AUMF is increasingly obsolete, why the nation will probably need a new legal foundation for next-generation terrorist threats, what the options are for this new legal foundation, and which option we think is best. There are significant downside risks to any successor legal regime to the AUMF and to the option of doing nothing. We have argued that the approach of statutory criteria and listing described above is the least bad option for the country to meet emerging terrorist threats. But at a broader level what is most important is that any legal reform should take account of lessons from the past twelve years' experience operating under the AUMF. Our broadest aim has been to provide a menu of options for incorporating those lessons into any new legislation that emerges

Military-intelligence convergence and the law of the Title 10/Title 50 debate by Robert Chesney( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

One of the most striking features of the post-9/11 era has been the convergence of military and intelligence operations. Nothing illustrates the trend better than the CIA's emergence as a veritable combatant command in the conflict with al Qaeda, though it manifests as well through the expansion of clandestine special forces activities, joint CIA-special forces operations, and cyber activities that defy conventional categorization. All of which obviously is important from a policy perspective. Less obviously, it also has significant legal implications. I do not refer to questions such as who lawfully may be targeted or what computer network operations amount to 'armed attack, ' though those are of course important matters. Rather, I am concerned here with America's domestic legal architecture for military and intelligence operations. That architecture is a half-baked affair consisting of a somewhat haphazard blend of decision-making rules, congressional notification requirements, and standing authorizations and constraints relevant to particular agencies. Convergence has a disruptive impact on key elements in that framework, especially those that rely on categorical distinctions that convergence confounds (like the notion of crisp delineations among collection, covert action, and military activity). My first aim in this article is to map that impact as thoroughly as can be done through the public record, drawing attention to and disaggregating issues that have bedeviled government lawyers behind closed doors for some time. My second aim is normative, as I suggest a modest set of changes to the existing legal framework meant to improve democratic accountability and compliance with the rule of law in such operations, while preserving the benefits convergence generates
