Subtitle: Redrawing Conceptual Lines. War is not an inevitable government response to terrorism. Other policy choices were available when Congress authorized armed force in response to the 9/11 attacks. Panelists will discuss whether aggression is the appropriate response to terrorism, and how a war against terrorism differs from a war against a nation-state. When is preemptive force warranted? Is the U.S. counterterrorism effort a "war" or an "armed conflict"? If terrorism is the enemy, are suspected terrorists "enemy combatants," "prisoners of war," or common criminals? Moderator: William Banks. Panelists: Mary Ellen O'Connell; George Fletcher; Noah Weisbord. For more information visit: http://washburnlaw.edu/ruleoflaw/
