Anthony Lewis's op ed in today's N.Y. Times
is (i) a wonderful reminder of how valuable Lewis' voice has been (and occasionally continues to be) in the national debate over the role of the Constitution in our public and private lives and (ii) a very nice summary of the Supreme Court's terrorism cases. For my con law class, it should help put the Appendix C cases of Ex parte Quirin
and Johnson v. Eisentrager
in perspective. The University of Chicago Law School has put together a fine web page
in connection with a January 17 (2002?) panel discussion there on military tribunals.
