American University Law School National Security Panel

by Kenneth Anderson

My bad for not mentioning this some time ago, but tomorrow, Thursday, 12 noon, we at Washington College of Law, American University, will have Michael Leiter, former director of the National Counterterrorism Center, as keynote speaker.  He will be followed by a panel that will include myself and my colleague Steve Vladeck — but more important than either Steve or I, it also features Lisa Monaco, the new assistant AG for the DOJ national security division, and Ivan Fong, general counsel to the Department of Homeland Security.  Dan Marcus will moderate.  Runs from 12–2:30, and there are maybe a few unfilled slots if you want to try and sign up to attend at the link, here.  It will probably be podcast or video posted at the school’s site as well.

One Response

  1. Sorry I will miss it.  I hope someone asks them about prosecuting Cheney and other high-level civilians for torture.  John Durham should get lots of good stuff from Cheney’s book and at some point I would think a prosecutor would determine that someone like Cheney taunting justice might merit review.  It’s like DOJ is an ostrich with its head in the sand.  Or like Schultz on Hogan’s Heroes (“I see nothink!  I see nothink!”)
