My Upcoming Testimony on Drones and The War on Terror Before the Senate Judiciary Subcomittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Human Rights

For those who may be interested, on Tuesday at 4 PM, I will be testifying at a hearing on “Drone Wars: The Constitutional and Counterterrorism Implications of Targeted Killing,” held by the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Human Rights. My testimony will focus primarily on the issues addressed in this post. You should be able to watch the hearing on C-SPAN and possibly at the Subcommittee’s website linked above.

I was only very recently invited to participate in this hearing, and I am not sure who all the other witnesses will be. But I do know that Prof. Rosa Brooks of Georgetown will be one of them, and that Senator Rand Paul is going to make a statement before the Subcommittee at the start of the hearing.
