It seems that counter-terrorism responsibility has fallen mainly under the purview of the military. Are there advantages, though, of limiting the military’s role in counter-terrorism and treating it more as a law enforcement issue? Are our laws–or international law–capable of meeting the challenges posed by international terrorism? Are there specific legal reforms that might benefit law enforcement without sacrificing on civil liberties? And if the military is going to take the lead, how should our service branches reform to meet these new challenges?
