No Man resource alert

By now we all know that the No Man has two great obsessions in life: (1) Apprendi, and (2) theories for prosecuting civilians in military theaters of operation. (No Man, how on earth did THOSE become your two great obsessions in life?) NIMJ's web site has a new report relevant to the second of those obsessions. Here's the lead of the Woodrow Wilson School's press release announcing the report:

PRINCETON – OCT. 1 – The Program in Law and Public Affairs (LAPA) at Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School issued a report today proposing a framework for handling the legal regulation of military contractors.

The report resulted from a meeting in June that brought together senior military and government officials, contractors, academic experts and Washington policymakers (see participant biographies) to discuss how security contractors working in zones of conflict should be trained, integrated with military forces, and held accountable. The group signed off on the summary report this week.

The rest of the press release is here.

If that study group would have expanded its scope to consider how Apprendi would apply in a court-martial of contractors deployed to a combat zone, No Man would have printed it off and rolled around his office naked with it.
