Subtitle: Military Commissions or Other Alternatives? On November 13, 2001, President Bush ordered the detention of suspected terrorists subject to trial by military commission. After the Supreme Court ruled in 2006 that the President lacked authority to unilaterally establish military commissions, Congress enacted the Military Commissions Act of 2006, effectively endorsing the use of military tribunals to try detainees. In Boumediene v. Bush, 128 S. Ct. 2229 (2008), the Supreme Court held that the military commissions established by Congress are not a sufficient substitute for the constitutional right of habeas corpus. Panelists discuss the fate of military commissions in light of Boumdiene, and explore other alternatives for adjudicating detainees. Moderator: David J. R. Frakt. Panelists: Amos Guiora, Gabor Rona, Samuel V. Jones. For more information visit: http://washburnlaw.edu/ruleoflaw/
