Tamara Cofman Wittes is back from the Middle East, so the Rational Security crew was back together yesterday intact. Between Tamara's trip and the Supreme Court's Zivotofsky decision, it was an unusually Israel-focused episode. Tamara discussed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech at the Herzliya Conference on national security, in which he spent a lot of time talking the economy. I talked about the Zivotofsky ruling and why, though not important to Middle East policy, it is a big win for John Yoo and David Addington. And Shane talked about coming surveillance fights in legislation that, on their faces anyway, have nothing to do with surveillance.
