Lawfare › Hard National Security Choices We’re going to skip all of the preview stories about the President’s NSA speech tomorrow. You’ll find out what he’s going to say when he says it.

Put the words “Al Qaeda” in a news headline, and you inevitably conjure a very particular idea in the mind of the American reader. “Al Qaeda” is the group that attacked the United States on 9/11. The group led by Osama bin Laden (now led, some might recall, by his successor, Ayman Zawahiri). The group we’ve been at war with for the past decade-plus, and that would gladly attack us again when it has the chance. It’s the group (legal-minded readers would add) whose members the President is authorized by the AUMF statute to detain indefinitely or target lethally. It’s a term, in other words, that has specific and powerful meaning in our political and legal life.

Contemporary Issues International law is constantly evolving according to the creation of new conventions, treaties and state decisions that respond to ever-shifting current events. In the last few decades, however, there has been a clear trend toward the increased importance and applicability of public international law to states’ foreign policies as well as to the protection of individual rights. This trend can be seen in two contemporary examples that are at the forefront of the debate over public international law. One is the increased recognition of international humanitarian law (IHL) as it applies to state interventions in internal conflicts, such as military operations in Lebanon, Iraq and Afghanistan.
