More for your reading list

A quick note to suggest that those interested in intelligence and surveillance topics check out the latest issue of the Journal of National Security Law & Policy, which features a host of interesting articles on U.S. and international law and intelligence collection by folks like Geoff Stone, Craig Forcese, and Steve Vladeck. I’d especially recommend the piece by David S. Kris, recently former Assistant Attorney General for National Security at the U.S. Department of Justice, who writes on “Law Enforcement as a Counterterrorism Tool.” As a response to chronic efforts in Congress to prohibit the President from ever using criminal prosecution as a way of handling terrorist suspects (and mandating military detention instead), Kris offers a powerful case on the other side.
