In May 2008, the Department of Justice released a report of its Office of Inspector General detailing the outcome of an investigation into the treatment of alien detainees. This and other recently de-classified reports on detainee treatment demonstrate that "enhanced interrogation techniques" are highly suspect when viewed in light of federal laws, treaties, and customary international law. Panelists debate whether U.S. government leaders, lawyers, and others may be held to account under domestic and international law for engaging in actions that some observers consider war crimes, and, if appropriate, how to bring responsible parties to justice. Moderator: Mary Ellen O'Connell. Panelists: Philippe Sands, Noah Weisbord, Robert F. Turner. For more information visit: http://washburnlaw.edu/ruleoflaw/
