This policy brief explores the evolving security challenges emanating from the Middle East in a post-9/11 environment.This article challenges the applicability of the current U.S. authorization for military force used to conduct counterterrorism operations in the region and proposes the formation of a new legal framework proportional to today’s security threats.
