"Justice and the Enemy" Foreign Policy

William Shawcross's Justice and the Enemy argues that military tribunals should have the exclusive right to try those accused of terror-related offenses. Shawcross considers these tribunals an exemplary mode by which to try terror suspects and likens them to the Nuremberg Trials. Karen Greenberg reminds us that, in trying terror suspects, unlike military tribunals, the U.S. criminal justice system has yielded results that do not undermine "the precious protections offered by the Constitution."
