Subtitle: U.S. Compliance With International Norms. After 9/11, the U.S. government undertook to detain and interrogate suspected "enemy combatants" at facilities in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Guantánamo Bay. The Bush Administration claims authority for these actions based on the President's role as Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces. The U.S. government has sought to narrow the definition of torture by authorizing "enhanced interrogation techniques" despite an internationally accepted prohibition against torture. Panelists will discuss the U.S. government's interpretation of this prohibition as defined by domestic and international law. The panel will also explore the ramifications of noncompliance with international laws as well as the scope, nature, and justification of the U.S. counterterrorism policy as it relates to national security. Moderator: Robert F. Turner. Panelists: Joseph Margulies; David E. Graham; Sean Watts. For more information visit: http://washburnlaw.edu/ruleoflaw/
