Debate: Treat Terrorists Like Enemy Combatants, Not Criminals

13 Jun

While I was in China, through Bloomberg News, I was introduced to Intelligence Squared…a debate program. The topic for the debate that night was “Treat Terrorists Like Enemy Combatants, Not Criminals” and was a re-broadcast from 2009. It took me a good bit of time to track down, but it was an amazing show, and worth the time to watch. There is a lot of knowledge on the panel debating both sides. Enjoy!


A brand is much more than the product
