Our guest this week is Lawfare's new managing editor, Susan Hennessey, in her first podcast appearance after leaving a spooky federal agency. We discuss Turkey's shoot-down of a Russian jet that allegedly violated Turkish airspace. Meanwhile, Brussels goes on lockdown, raising the question of how long it’s rational to shut down a major city to preempt a terrorist attack. And Tamara reports thoughts on the “forever war” from Adm. McRaven.

Plus, a special Thanksgiving edition of Object Lessons, in which we all give not-at-all-ironic thanks for simple gifts in the national security world.
