When will the "(Global) War on Terror"/"Overseas Contingency Operations" be over? [View all]

Will a "state of emergency" continue to exist that will require certain actions by the government?

As long as the AUMF is cited as the reason behind the authority of a certain action or actions, it can be said that a state of emergency exist. The AUMF has been cited as the authority behind warrantless wiretapping/electronic surveillance, detentions/indefinite detentions, "enhanced interrogation techniques" (torture), and drones/targeted killings.

There was a time when a state of emergency passed and all the powers that went with it ended.

Is that time over?

Never. A state of emergency will continue to exist that requires certain actions by the govt.

I'm sure there's a timeline that will end the present state of emergency that requires certain actions by the govt.
