Following his keynote address at yesterday's ACS symposium on national security and human rights, Assistant Attorney General for National Security David S. Kris talked with ACSblog about the Obama administration's approach to issues surrounding efforts to combat terrorism. Kris said, "We're taking a pragmatic approach to find the best solution to national security threats consistent with protection of civil liberties and the rule of law. And we're trying to avoid too many abstract front-end rules that limit our options here." Kris also noted that the president "supports reformed military commissions."
