Benjamin Wittes talked about his book Law and the Long War: The Future of Justice in the Age of Terror (Penguin Press, June 19, 2008). In his book he argues that the Bush administration is failing in the war on terrorism because it ignores current domestic and international law instead of seeking to create new laws that would govern its necessary actions. This decision he argues puts the administration in direct conflict with the other two branches of government. Following his remarks Mr. Wittes responded to questions from the audience. close
