Talk:Extrajudicial detention, U.S.
As first placed here, this article is a U.S.-centric, and U.S.-centric to specific leadership and time. It is subordinate to Extrajudicial detention, and, below it, will appear Extrajudicial detention, U.S., George W. Bush Administration. There is a parallel set of articles for Interrogation, Intelligence interrogation, U.S. and Intelligence interrogation, U.S., George W. Bush Administration.
My primary intent was to consider primary sources (e.g., Supreme Court decisions, declassified documents, treaties, etc.) as the preferred source of commentary. Whenever possible, when a news report is used, there are at least some confirmatory primary sources. For example, there are wikilinks to the key decisions, such as Hamdan v. Rumsfeld, ex parte Quirin, Rasul v. Bush, Johnson v. Eisentrager, Hamdi v. Rumsfeld, etc. There are general legal articles on such things as international extradition and universal jurisdiction. Many more legal articles are needed.
More in the extraordinary rendition, whenever there is a reference to a Supreme Court, etc., decision, the decision or court pleadings are cited if at all possible. Analysis by journalists and by legal writers outside peer-reviewed legal journals supplement these. Howard C. Berkowitz 15:27, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
