The Constitution and the war on terrorism (II).

The last time Tony Lewis wrote an op ed for his old employer, The New York Times, before today (see below) it appeared in the paper on February 24, 2003, the 200th anniversary of the Supreme Court's opinion in Marbury v. Madison (click here for full opinion). For purposes of my con law class, at least, it does a very nice job of tying together Marbury (which we will begin discussing on Jan. 21) and the Quirin and Johnson cases (yesterday's class). For a critical view of Lewis' op ed article by a former Supreme Court law clerk (who mysteriously remains nameless), click here (Howard Bashman's "How Appealing" blawg).
