A Limited Humanitarian Intervention is a one act play. The script is extracted directly from the Enemy Combatant Status Review Tribunals, the al Qaeda Manual, and US media coverage of the events related to these documents. Aside from extraction and google translation, the language has not been altered from its original source. It is printed in English and Arabic.

Holdings can be found in the W. Van Clark, Jr. Library at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

A digital performance of the play occurred on April 7th, 2012. In keeping with the distanced newsfeed we receive about so many tragedies in the 21st century, the text was read digitally in both English and Arabic.
