The law of terrorism is a difficult topic to broach no matter what your political affiliation and given the history of the last eight years since 911 it has become even difficult However even as a non lawyer Wittes provides some interesting and compelling ideas His evaluation of what has happened provides engaging discussion of not only how the Congress and President Bush have tried to grapple with the new and difficult issues presented by terror in a globalized world Terrorists don t fall under the normal classifications of enemy soldiers who are acting as instruments of the state nor do they uite seem to ualify as criminals and therefore for all the rights and procedures that come with the US criminal procedure regimeSO what system of law do you apply Obviously detainees for terrorism cannot be kept incommunicado indefinitely but neither can they be treated as common criminals A hybrid system And lead by whom the executive or the Congress And why hasn t the judiciary taken a leading role in preserving the basic human rights of detaineesNo easy answers but Wittes does a good job of examining what has happened to date and what might be the course of action Congress who he believes should take the lead might take in the future to remedy some of the failings of the Bush Administration
