Episode 106: Schools Out For Summer
This week on the National Security Law Podcast, co-hosts Bobby Chesney and Steve Vladeck are joined by Michel Paradis (lead counsel for the defense in the al-Nashiri military commission case) and Captain Brian Mizer (learned counsel for the defense in that case). Tune in for an extensive discussion of the upcoming D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals argument (Jan. 22) in the al-Nashiri case, as well as for broader discussion of the state of the military commission system. As an added bonus after that interview, we also return briefly to the topic of a potential "national emergency" declaration by President Trump, in order to go into the details as just what can and cannot be done with money subject to 10 USC 2808 and 33 USC 2293 if and when such a declaration occurs. Of course, the real added bonus comes with the frivolity at the end. As it turns out, there is more to be said about bagels. And tortillas. And Nick Foles.
