Read the Authorization carefully. Think about the type and amount of discretion
Read the Authorization carefully. Think about the type and amount of discretion it gives the President to use force against al Qaeda and its supporters. Use your imagination to consider hypothetical scenarios where the President could or could not use force, according to the Authorization. As a practical matter, did it give the President too much, not enough, or the right amount of authorization to use force? Given the Authorization, how would you define the battlefield? How is it determined and conceptualized? Note that the Authorization has no end date. Should it have been limited in time, with a further Authorization after a set period, or not? Note also that the Authorization does not distinguish between US citizens and foreigners. Provide arguments in support of your assertions.
