Riesman and Baker argue that the actual practice of states abnd the reaction of states and the international community to that practice imply that many covert actions are not necessarily illegal under international law. However, iin making this argument, they interpret rather narrowly the noninterventioin provisions of the UN Charter and rather broadly such key notions as “covert action,” “law,” and “accepted practice.”
