Distinguished Scholar Bobby Chesney was quoted in the lead story in the New York Times today. The story covers the Obama administration's legal debate on the limits of the war against Al Qaeda.
Chesney was quoted, â€œItâ€™s a tangled mess because the law is unsettled. Do the rules vary from location to location? Does the armed conflict exist only in the current combat zone, such as Afghanistan, or does it follow wherever participants may go? Who counts as a party to the conflict? Thereâ€™s a lot at stake in these debates.â€
