Shayana Kadidal, senior managing attorney of the Guantánamo Global Justice Initiative at the Center for Constitutional Rights, discusses the Supreme Court decision on the “material support” for terrorism case Holder v. Humanitarian Law Project, the Court’s continued deference to “wartime” decisions made by the executive and legislative branches, Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan’s lead role in arguing the government’s position in the case, why teaching the Tamil Tigers about representative democracy could land you in prison, the Clinton administration’s broadened application of economic sanctions and the wisdom in treating terrorists like criminals instead of waging a “war on terror.”
