Today: Peter Spiro Testifies before the SFRC on Libya and War Powers
Just a quick note for folks following the Congressional wrangling over U.S. military activity in Libya and the War Powers Resolution: later this morning, Opinio Juris‘ own Peter Spiro will be testifying before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. U.S. State Department Legal Adviser Harold Koh is also set to testify and, presumably, defend the Administration’s position. Louis Fisher of the Constitution Project rounds out the Senate witness list. Peter’s already been very outspoken here about the issue (see here, here, and here), so I, for one, am really looking forward to seeing his presentation on a larger stage.
The hearing is set to begin at 10 am EST with Senator John Kerry presiding. You can watch all the action here.
