Guest: Eric Jensen, J.D., teaches The Law of Armed Conflict, International Criminal Law, and National Security Law at BYU’s J. Reuben Clark Law School Hundreds of thousands of refugees fleeing poverty and conflict and Syria are arriving by train, bus and on foot in Austria and Germany. Heart-wrenching images last week of drowned toddlers intensified calls for European nations to do more for the refugees. The president of the European Commission today announced binding quotas for distributing a total of 160,000 refugees between EU nations. The Washington Post reported last week that the CIA and US Special Operations forces have launched a secret campaign to hunt terrorism suspects in Syria—this is part of a targeted killing program that is separate from the military’s broader offensive against the Islamic State. North and South Korea recently agreed to ease tensions.
