Earlier today, Lawfare published an article that was significantly beneath its editorial standards. I take full responsibility for this decision and, on behalf of myself and Lawfare’s board of directors, wish to explain the circumstances of the decision to publish it and the steps we are taking to ensure that such a lapse does not happen again.
We are currently studying the problem of how to build a maximally useful Lawfare mobile app—and our tech team is looking to interview readers to figure out how people are using the site and what functionality people need. As we did when we built Lawfare's website, we are keen for reader involvement in the process to make sure the product we develop is as responsive to actual reader need as possible. If you are willing to be contacted by our tech folks for an interview, please fill out this short survey.
We are excited to announce a new partnership between Lawfare and Foreign Policy magazine.

So we've cut down their testimony to less than an hour, giving you only what you need to know.
