‘Pop Up’ Enemies in the Mideast

It’s getting hard to know who’s legal to fight in the Mideast, and who isn’t. The Obama Administration is reconsidering its opposition to a new Authorization to Use Military Force (AUMF). The authority would be extended to “associates of associates” of al-Qaeda, and the Administration would like to limit its exposure to hostilities. Yet when the U.S. or its allies get attacked – as was the case in January at an Algerian oil field – the pressure’s on again.

Somehow, there has to be a way to arrange peace with the Muslim world. But it hasn’t emerged yet.
