Abstract:

Aggressive counterterrorism policies will continue into the next presidency. Here are some suggestions for how to achieve these goals: Boost trust and credibility with the American public; work more closely with Congress to assure the public that the president is acting in good faith; close Guantánamo despite political difficulties; establish a national security court; create an international framework with allies; and fix interrogation techniques.
