Summary "This volume presents the five major enemy combatant cases of the post-9/11 era. Assembled in narrative form, the documents tell the story of the legal arguments upon which the U.S. government and the defense attorneys have based their respective sides in what has become a complex and philosophically important debate among American lawyers, academics, and citizens. These cases involve two U.S. citizens, one Qatari citizen enrolled at an Illinois university, and two of the most prominent cases regarding Guantanamo detainees. Viewed together, the documents assembled herein in digested form illustrate the judicial struggle between the needs of national security and the constitutional and international legal protections regarding the rights of individuals."--BOOK JACKET.
