April 22, 2006

Professor Scott Silliman will be outlining the current legal and policy issues in the ongoing War Against Terrorism. Among other things, he will be discussing the ongoing controversy surrounding the Administration's detention of alleged terrorists at Guantanamo Bay and its claim to be able to detain even American citizens within this country without charging them or affording them counsel; the use of military commissions to prosecute terrorists; extraordinary rendition; and the President's use of electronic surveillance within the United States by the National Security Agency without a court order.
