The anti-torture memos

Jack Balkan has gathered together all the thought provoking essays from the Balkanization blog dealing with the war on terror, introduced as follows:

"We've previously compiled a running list of all posts related to civil liberties, the War on Terror, and presidential power, listed by author.

By popular demand, here is a list of the essays grouped by topic. We've eliminated postings that are very short or that mostly quote newspaper articles. What follows is a compendium of substantive analyses on some of the key issues of the War on Terror by the authors here at Balkinization."

I doubt there is a better single source of analyses anywhere. Most of the articles are from 2005 and 2006 and they are divided into eight sections:

Part I-- Civil Liberties

Part II-- Presidential Power and Constitutional Structure

Part III-- Torture and the "Torture Memos"

Part IV? The NSA Controversy and Government Surveillance

Part V-- Hamdan

Part VI-- The Military Commissions Act of 2006
