Presented by Professor Tung Yin
Title: Unlawful Assassination or Lawful Targeted Killing: How Operation Vengeance Does (and Does Not) Shed Light on the bin Laden and al-Aulaki Strikes.
Description: In the past five months, the United States has carried out successful military missions to kill al Qaeda founder/leader Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda in Yemen member Anwar al-Aulaki, the former by Navy SEAL strike team, the latter by a missile-firing drone aircraft. Critics have decried these killings as “assassinations,” but in fact there is strong historical precedent for targeted killings of high-ranking enemy combatants. There are, however, limits to the World War II analogy, and the power to order targeted killing against non-state actors is not without problems in an area where the legal rules, domestic as well as international, are arguably behind the times.
Registration is required for attendance at each CLE. There is a limited number of spaces available.
The price includes 1 Oregon State General CLE and a full breakfast buffet.
