Anti-Terrorism in the Time of Hope and Change

The terror war against the United States, particularly as waged by al Queda, presents many challenges, beginning with whether it is in our national interest to treat it like a traditional war or as something new and different. The Inn will look at one aspect of that problem: how to deal with terrorists captured by American forces. Should they be treated as illegal belligerents, special war criminals or as ordinary criminals? Should they be prosecuted in Federal Court, a military tribunal or just held until the end of the hostilities?

The Obama Administration struggles with those questions, as did the Bush Administration before it. "Anti-Terrorism in the Time of Hope and Change" will look at the evolving views of the Obama Administration, as it seeks to arrive at a consensus acceptable to the military, intelligence, criminal justice and political interests it must serve.
