The Lawfare Podcast: Alex Vindman on the Escalation in Ukraine

Tensions are heating up between Russia and Ukraine, seven years after the seizure by the Russians of the Crimean Peninsula and the incursions into Eastern Ukraine. With troop movements and some saber rattling, is Vladimir Putin trying to send a message to Joe Biden, or perhaps to Ukrainian President Zelensky? Is he trying to satisfy domestic constituencies or distract them? Benjamin Wittes sat down with Alexander Vindman to talk about what Russia is doing and why, and what the Biden administration should do about it.

Rational Security: The 'Scoop d’etat' Edition

Jordanian authorities mount arrests and detain a member of the royal family in what authorities called a threat to “security and stability” in the country, a key U.S. ally. An attack on the Capitol in Washington raises more questions about long-term security of that building. And the Biden administration seeks a way back to the negotiating table with Iran.

The Lawfare Podcast: A Royal Crisis in the Kingdom of Jordan

This past weekend, an exceptional series of events rocked the normally quiet nation of Jordan as an apparent schism between members of the country's royal family led to the detention of the country's former crown prince, Prince Hamzeh, and the arrest of several of his associates on allegations that they were undermining the country's national security—potentially in coordination with certain foreign interests.

ChinaTalk

ChinaTalk: Japan's China Challeng‪e‬

To discuss, ChinaTalk assembled two of my favorite Japanese think-tankers, Yuka Koshino, a research fellow at the UK think tank International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS), and Akira Igata, the executive director at the Tama University-affiliated Center for Rule-making Strategy (CRS). Joshua Fitt of The Center for a New American Security (CNAS) cohosts.

Thanks to CNAS for making this show possible.

The Lawfare Podcast: Natan Sachs on the Israeli Governance Crisis

Natan Sachs is a Brookings senior fellow and the head of the Brookings Center for Middle East Policy, part of the Brookings Foreign Policy program. Benjamin Wittes sat down with Natan to talk about the results of the Israeli election, which are still unclear amid a haze over the entire political system. They talked about what the dispute between the camps is about, the many different factions and what they want, and why they can't sit together easily in a government.
