Detention, Interrogation and Trial of Terrorist Suspects – 10 Years Later - Event Audio/VideoThe legal ambiguities associated with the classification, interrogation and adjudication of al Qaeda members alleged to have committed war crimes continue to hamper the Obama administration’s national security policy. This confusion and the inconsistent application of laws to govern the conflict have exacerbated criticism of the U.S. approach to the war on al Qaeda. This panel will analyze, from myriad perspectives, U.S. policy and practice on these issues as we enter the second decade of the armed conflict.
