Resources: INSLM reports

The Independent National Security Legislation Monitor‘s website has been redone. Annoyingly, it is now less user-friendly, because it doesn’t have all the reports on one page. So here is a list of all the INSLM reports, with links, in reverse chronological order.

Of all these, the best is the 2011 annual report. It makes no recommendations, instead it discusses the ethical and legal conundrums that frame Bret Walker’s next few reports. It’s one of the most interesting and engaging reports from a government body I have ever read.

Also, I will still be announcing the secret side project, and publishing part 2 of Security Studies Versus Security Studies, in the near future.

 

Update 1: At some point after publishing the post, the DPMC website was updated again, and all the links went dead. I have now replaced the links, using the Wayback Machine so that it won’t happen again.
