Amos Guiora on Israeli Administrative Detention

CTLab readers might be interested in checking out the very interesting series of posts on administrative detention on the Israeli legal model at the international law blog Opinio Juris.  Professor Guiora (Univ of Utah law faculty) was an Israeli JAG officer for 19 years, and is able to bring a detailed expertise to the comparative issues of detention in counterterrorism.  I raise a question to him about how comparable the US and Israeli and European situations are from a legal and strategic standpoint.  Start here and scroll upwards for the posts.

See these two items in The Economist: Unrest in Uzbekistan: Fata Fergana and The Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan: Here Comes Trouble. CTlab friend and Jihadica frontman Thomas Hegghammer has also pointed out a new Norwegian Defence Research Establishment (FFI) report on an IMU successor organization of sorts, the Islamic Jihad Union, authored by FFI Fellow Einar Wigen.
