The new episode of Rational Security is out, featuring a general agreement to ignore the State of the Union and talk about the state of the United Arab Emirates instead.

Of particular interest to readers of this site, Shane Harris takes on FBI Director James Comey's irritation at the New York Times for giving anonymity to AQAP sources---offering a strong defense of anonymous sourcing for terrorist informants. And there's lots of other fun stuff too. If you haven't checked Rational Security out yet, Episode #3 is a great place to start.
