Over the next few weeks, we will be starting our rollout of the Lawfare Wiki Document Library. The library will have many facets, and we will be introducing it piece by piece, sometimes page by page. The first page, a kind of template for what we hope to do with a lot of cases in the future, is a case summary page for the long-running case of Ali Hamza Ahmad Suliman Al-Bahlul, which started in a military commission and has made its way to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals. As the reader will see, the effort is to provide the key documents from all stages of the case with a minimum of commentary and no opinion at all---and to maintain it and expand it as the case progresses in the future. We would welcome help from readers who follow the case in managing this page, which was created by Raffaela Wakeman, and from readers who follow other cases in creating their case- and docket pages. Those interested in helping out should email Raffaela for information about how to get involved in editing and helping build the library.
