McChrystal was released from his position as head of US forces in Afghanistan by the President because of McChrystal's comments in this article. President Obama's statement on McChrystal's release is here.

Last week, I posted some information about Holder v. Humanitarian Law Project. This week, Opinio Juris has a great breakdown of Morrison v. National Australia Bank. Read it here.
