The Constitution and the war on terrorism (I).

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.
