    Lawfare Archive: Scott Anderson and Suzanne Maloney on Iran, WTF?

    Lawfare Archive: Scott Anderson and Suzanne Maloney on Iran, WTF?

    From June 17, 2019: It's getting ugly in the Persian Gulf: Iran allegedly attacks two oil tankers. It announces that it's going to violate the JCPOA, the so-called Iran nuclear agreement. There's talk of military strikes. Europe is edgy, and the Secretary of State is on Sunday talk shows being edgier still.
    Benjamin Wittes sat down with Suzanne Maloney and Scott R. Anderson to talk it all through. They talked about whether the AUMF covers Iran, why Iran is doing this stuff, whether the Trump administration brought this all on itself, and where it's all going from here.

    Lawfare Daily: How to Protect Undersea Cables with Kevin Frazier

    Lawfare Daily: How to Protect Undersea Cables with Kevin Frazier

    Undersea cables carry more than 95 percent of the world’s digital traffic. The system of cables is vulnerable to a range of threats, from fishing accidents and acts of nature to tampering from state actors. To discuss how to best protect this critical infrastructure, Lawfare's Fellow in Technology Policy and Law, Eugenia Lostri, talked with Kevin Frazier Assistant Professor at St. Thomas University College of Law and Lawfare's Tarbell Fellow. They talked about the different types of threats to undersea cables, the importance of redundancy, and what's in the way of policy solutions.

    Rational Security: The “Closing the Clubhouse” Edition

    Rational Security: The “Closing the Clubhouse” Edition

    This week, Alan, Quinta, and Scott were joined by Lawfare Editor-in-Chief Benjamin Wittes, fresh from his New York rumspringa, to talk over the week’s big national security news, including:
    “You Don’t Have to Go Home, But You Can’t Stay Here.” That’s the message that will soon be going out to those Lawfare team members that have been camping out at our temporary Manhattan studio, as, after weeks of proceedings, it is officially closing time for former President Donald Trump’s criminal prosecution in New York. How has the trial proceeded? And what have we learned up to this point, before the verdict comes in?“Spinning the Wheels of Justice.” The prosecutor for the International Criminal Court has made a landmark request for arrest warrants targeting Hamas’s three most senior officials as well as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Yoav Gallant on the grounds that they have committed war crimes and crimes against humanity. Is this a step towards justice? Or towards an end to the conflict?“Take a Hayek.” The Biden administration has now followed in the Trump administration’s footsteps in imposing major tariffs on imports from China, and both parties seem comfortable with a level of trade protectionism that would have been inconceivable just a few decades ago. Is this the end of the neoliberal experiment? And what seems set to come about in its wake?For object lessons, Alan recommended pianist Víkingur Ólafsson’s reworking of Bach's Organ Sonata No. 4. Quinta shouted out two cartoonists illustrating the Trump trial: Liza Donnelly for the New Yorker and Josh Cochran for the New York Times. Scott recommended the new book forthcoming from friend-of-the-pod Michel Paradis, a new portrait of Dwight Eisenhower in the lead-up to D-Day entitled “The Light of Battle.” And Ben gave an unlikely endorsement to one of Trump’s legal counsel, the somewhat vampiric but nonetheless effective Emil Bove.

    Lawfare Daily: Prosecuting the Gaza War Before the International Criminal Court with Chimène Keitner

    Lawfare Daily: Prosecuting the Gaza War Before the International Criminal Court with Chimène Keitner

    For today’s episode, Lawfare Senior Editor Scott R. Anderson sat down with Chimène Keitner, a Professor of Law at UC Davis School of Law and former Counselor on International Law at the U.S. Department of State, to discuss the recent applications for arrest warrants filed by the prosector for the International Criminal Court (ICC), accusing several senior Hamas leaders as well as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Minister of Defense Yoav Gallant of crimes against humanity and war crimes in Gaza. They discussed the nature of the allegations, how the ICC has come to exercise jurisdiction over the Gaza conflict, and what impact this recent action may have on the broader conflict.

Giggling crushes speaker’s integrity

The May 23rd podcast with Scott Anderson and Ms. Keitner continued a topic which deeply interests me. Scott is an excellent host and I love his Rational Security puns. However, Ms. Keitner’s (I hope) unintentional giggling crushes her integrity. My first legal boss quenched my nervous giggling. I would expect someone who held a position that talks on genocide, war, etc. This is not Ms. Keitner’s first Lawfare podcast. I cringed everytime she spoke. I certainly feel bad for Scott. Isn’t there anyone else who can speak on this topic other than Ms. Keitner?

Ben’s Silence

…finally ended 23 May 2024 with, as expected, a blind, complete, and obedience defense of the leaders of his homeland of the Chosen People of the Kahane Master Race. Were Bibi WhatAYahoo and Yoav Gallant seen tweeting out vows to starve everyone to death in Gaza and then watched live on Ailes Spews and Ma Adelson’s Self-Diddling Network as they personally blew up each and every food aid and water truck heading into Gaza, Benny would still obey his Kahane inbreeding, shovel Hasbara, and obey his Kach and Likud masters.

Trump is still crazy

Crazy after all these years.
