April 20, 2018

Episode Notes:

Coupled with draft legislation for a new AUMF, we revisit the issue of the president’s authority to use military force. Jason’s guest is Oona Hathaway, the Gerard C. and Bernice Latrobe Smith Professor in International Law and director of the Center for Global Legal Challenges, both at Yale Law School, as well as a member of the editorial board at Just Security.
