Download Secret Trials and Executions: Military Tribunals and the Threat to Democracy, 2nd ed. (Open Media) epub
by Barbara Olshansky
"Olshansky lays out a skillful argument which, point by point, shows how the 'war on terrorism' at home amounts to a declaration of war on the Constitution itself."-Criminal Defense Weekly
Since President Bush's executive order establishing military tribunals was first issued, U.S. courts have now ruled that Guantanamo Bay, the largest site of prisoners facing tribunals, is outside their jurisdiction. The rules governing the tribunals have been established and the first defendants named. In this update Olshansky provides Constitutional analysis of this verdict and its consequences for due process and equal protection under the law.
Barbara Olshansky is the assistant legal director of the Center for Constitutional Rights.
