"The middle part of the country -- the great red zone that voted for Bush -- is clearly ready for war. The decadent left in its enclaves on the coasts is not dead -- and may well mount a fifth column." -- Andrew Sullivan, 16 September 2001

A Primer on the Merits Issues in ACLU v. Mattis (the U.S. Citizen Enemy Combatant Case) - Lawfare
First, and perhaps most importantly, note that this would be the first occasion for a court to address a question that has loomed for several years now: Does the 2001 Authorization for the Use of Military Force (AUMF) extend to the Islamic State? The question has never been in the courts in a serious way before because it pretty much requires a detention case of this kind to ensure judicial review, and no detainee arising out of the conflict with ISIS has previously been in a position to bring a habeas petition. As a result, the Obama and Trump administrations have not really had to confront the possibility that the AUMF is best read not to encompass ISIS (and, by extension, that the detention provisions of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 do not reach ISIS members). This has sapped executive interest in pushing Congress to pass a new AUMF explicitly focused on ISIS, among other things. Should this case go forward on the merits, that level of interest may suddenly change, particularly if and when the courts begin to express doubt on the matter.
