Episode 5: Does this Podcast Apply Extraterritorially?

February 21, 2017

In this episode, Professors Chesney and Vladeck consider whether the Supreme Court is poised to use a border-shooting case (Hernandez v. Mesa) to expand Fourth or Fifth Amendment rights for non-citizens outside the United States, and what this might mean for other scenarios ranging from drone strikes to SIGINT collection and network investigative techniques the FBI might use with overseas effect.  They then turn their attention to the fight against the Islamic State in Mosul, exploring the evolving role of U.S. ground forces there.  Next, they provide a detailed update on four sets of cases involving the military commission system.  Finally, they spiral out of control (and coherence) with their views on how to improve the NBA all-star game. Seriously, guys?
