Last week, I introduced a new podcast that Shane Harris, Tamara Cofman Wittes, and I are doing entitled, Rational Security. Episode #2 is now out, featuring a discussion with Brookings scholar Jeremy Shapiro about his new paper with Daniel Byman on returning foreign fighters, "Be Afraid. Be a Little Afraid," which I posted a few days ago. We also talked about why everyone makes such a fetish of condemnations of terrorist attacks. And we talked about the emerging new vocabulary of cybersecurity, in which the President talks about "cyber vandalism" by foreign states. We hope you'll check it out.
