"Martial Law, 2004 Style"/"We Have Met Our Own Worst Enemy"

August 2004
U.S. Naval Institute Proceedings;Aug2004, Vol. 130 Issue 8, p10
Conference Proceeding
Captain M. Farkas seems to think that E. Fidell, by saying they must remain within the guidelines of their own moral and legal establishment, somehow strikes a blow against our ability to fight terrorism. This is interesting because the foci of Fidell's argument are the two United States citizens who were arrested in the United States but are being held in isolation in much the same manner as those captured during fighting overseas. Because Captain Farkas uses a simplistic approach to analyze Fidell's article, the same approach is used on Captain Farkas.
