What fun! We recorded this one in front of a large live audience at the Annual Review of the Field conference run by the ABA Standing Committee on Law and National Security, and we did it as a joint podcast with our friends at ABA’s National Security Law Today podcast: Elisa Poteat and Yvette Bourcicot! We covered:
- Islamic State detainees, included (but not limited to) the Beatles
- The approach of National Cupcake Day (a.k.a. December 15th, a.k.a. the date when several FISA surveillance and document-production authorities will sunset if Congress does not act)
- A review of three key Supreme Court cases that are pending this term (cross-border shootings and the Constitution, the Suspension Clause, and the President’s power to remove independent agency heads)
All that and more, but, alas, no frivolity this week! We just didn’t have the time. But, don’t worry we’ll be twice as frivolous next week!
