Interesting. I just told my students in conlaw I today that we are
still at war under the terms of the September 2001 AUMF. Has the list
discussed this before?
There is a good analysis of the AUMF by Bradley and Goldsmith in the May
2005 Harvard Law Review. I don't agree with every element of their
analysis, but if Congress wanted to avoid a long war against the
terrorists who participated in the Sept. 2001 attacks, they shouldn't
have approved the AUMF. Once I actually get students to read the AUMF,
they all agree it is quite broad.

A gentle reminder, Cornell. We are not at war. Therefore, comparing
to peacetime AG's is appropriate.
