Editor’s Note: Russian disinformation is extensive and growing, with major efforts in Europe, the United States and other parts of the world. The content of Russia’s campaign is increasingly understood, but the motives behind it are often simplified. CNA’s Kasey Stricklin explains Russia’s efforts, detailing how it fits into Russia’s worldview and broader strategic concerns. Daniel Byman. ***. While there is much discussion about Russian disinformation in today’s popular discourse, the conversation about why Russia uses disinformation usually doesn’t get beyond general notions of Moscow wanting to “divide us” or “muddy the waters.” After the revelations that Russia is working to help Bernie Sanders in the 2020 primary, a Wired article , corre.
In the past weeks, countries worldwide have put in place or considered a range of surveillance technologies to monitor and control the spread of the novel coronavirus. Alan Rozenshtein how the coronavirus outbreak will affect U.S. government surveillance law. Susan Landau that determining whether surveillance will help combat COVID-19 requires understanding how the virus spreads and how cell phone tracking works.

As the coronavirus pandemic spreads across the globe, it can be difficult to keep track of how the virus has spread and how different countries have responded. So, this week we are doing something a little bit different. We are bringing you dispatches about how nine different countries are handling the COVID-19 outbreak. Jacob Schulz spoke with experts about the situations in Poland, Spain, South Korea, Italy, Russia, South Africa, Iran, China, and Great Britain. You will hear from journalists, Brookings experts, a former CIA officer, and a Member of European Parliament, among others. What are the restrictions different governments have put in place? What legal authorities have they relied on? How has COVID-19 and the corresponding governme.
In 2007, researchers in the scientific journal PNAS showing how local governments mitigated outbreaks of the 1918 flu pandemic by aggressively limiting public gatherings. Cities such as San Francisco and St. Louis, which introduced restrictions early in one of the “waves” of the disease, fared much better than Philadelphia, which held a World War I victory parade that attracted tens of thousands of people to its famous Broad Street. Philadelphia was soon hit hard by the flu, while San Francisco and St. Louis were relatively spared. “When multiple interventions were introduced early, they were very effective in 1918,” one of the researchers, Richard Hatchett, the New York Times. “And that certainly offers hope that they would be similarly us.
On Friday, President Donald Trump sign a memorandum under the Defense Production Act ordering the secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services to "use any and all authority available under the Act to require General Motors Company to accept, perform, and prioritize contracts or orders for the number of ventilators that the Secretary determines to be appropriate."
On this bonus edition of the Lawfare Podcast, we have combined two conversations about about how the Department of State and the Department of Defense are responding to the Covid-19 pandemic, including the impact on the workforce of these agencies, their efforts to assist and protect Americans abroad and domestically, and the broader national security and foreign policy consequences for the United States.
Editor's note: This article is part of a of short articles by analysts involved in the Cyberspace Solarium Commission , among others, highlighting and commenting upon aspects of the commission's findings and conclusion. The muddled discourse about cybersecurity in Washington, D.C., and in policy communities continues to limit the ability of practitioners and scholars to have a constructive discussion about the core elements of strategy.
The novel coronavirus has now to countries around the globe and more than 500,000 people, shockwaves through the global economy and severely health care systems worldwide. The virus is rapidly in the United States, Europe and other parts of the world. But China—where the virus originated months ago— to have curbed viral spread through aggressive lockdown measures and extensive testing. Experts remain uncertain about whether Beijing has defeated the virus: Some observers that, as the country returns to work and the virus expands globally, community transmission may resume. But at the moment, President Xi Jinping finds himself in an unusual position: As the rest of the world struggles to cope, China has emerged as perhaps the only country wit.
On March 25, the published its final report advising Congress, the president and the American people on how to foster an ethos of national service. As part of this mission, the independent and bipartisan commission held numerous hearings, published reports, and interviewed stakeholders to review the status of the Selective Service System (SSS), the agency responsible for registering young men for the military draft and—if Congress and the president ever deem it necessary—inducting draftees into the military. While there may be debate about other aspects of the commission’s report, it makes at least one recommendation that Congress should implement as soon as possible: As long as the SSS continues to exist, women should be included in mandat.
On March 2, the U.S. Department of Justice two Chinese nationals for allegedly laundering cryptocurrency on behalf of North Korea. The laundering scheme ferreted away part of almost $250 million worth of virtual currencies stolen from a cryptocurrency exchange in 2018 by the North Korean-affiliated Lazarus Group. Through elaborate software programming, the two Chinese nationals, Tian Yinyin and Li Jiadong, converted much of the stolen cryptocurrency into regular currency at Chinese banks, according to a sanctioning them both. The case exemplifies how cryptocurrency obfuscation tools and techniques are likely to play a growing role in financing threats to U.S. national security. As U.S. adversaries get more acquainted with blockchain technol.
In a Lawfare earlier this year, I questioned the wisdom of referring to cyber operations as psychological operations. These campaigns are the bread and butter of U.S. Cyber Command’s operational activities. My interest in this question stemmed from two recent articles, one on and one in the . The former discussed past activities of U.S. Cyber Command and the latter discussed possible future activities. Taken together, both articles used terms such as “information warfare,” “information operations,” “psychological operations” and “influence operations” to describe these activities. I closed that post with a promise to comment on the doctrinal and conceptual confusions within Defense Department policy regarding all of these concepts. This pos.
Editor's note: This article is part of a of short articles by analysts involved in the Cyberspace Solarium Commission , among others, highlighting and commenting upon aspects of the commission's findings and conclusion. The international community lacks a firm grasp of the cyber domain as an operating space—a key point recognized by the early in the process of putting together its report.

The Senate last night unanimously approved a $2 trillion emergency relief bill to tackle the economic impacts of the COVID-19 crisis, the Washington Post. The 880-page bill would send checks to over 150 million American households, set up extensive loan programs for businesses and boost spending for unemployment insurance programs and hospitals. The Pentagon on Wednesday ordered a 60-day stop to all troop movement overseas in order to limit the spread of COVID-19 within the military, the Hill. Defense Department leaders are trying to determine the military’s role in safeguarding the United States from the novel coronavirus while maintaining force preservation and readiness, to the New York Times. A man was charged with making terroristic th.
Bill Bishop, author of the Newsletter, comes on the show to discuss the new low in U.S.-China relations. We start off talking about what China's response to coronavirus has taught us about the CCP, and then go into the deeper forces behind why the Chinese government has started to blame America for creating the virus. We also touch on China-Taiwan relations, the role Sinocim plays in agenda-setting as well as binegable Chinese T.V.
This term, the Supreme Court will decide Trump v. Vance , a blockbuster case concerning the legality of a state grand jury subpoena for President Trump’s tax returns and other financial records directed at his accounting firm Mazars. Though the court has temporarily postponed oral argument in the case in light of the coronavirus pandemic, it has not given any indication that the delay in argument will push back resolution of the case beyond this term. Nor should the court delay; the issues raised by this case are incredibly important for delineating the limits on the president’s immunity from judicial process, and they should be decided expeditiously. Trump has fought the grand jury subpoena in federal court, arguing that he enjoys an absol.
It took weeks for administration officials to persuade Donald Trump that the coronavirus posed a significant threat to the United States. Did those delays hinder the fight against the virus? The coronavirus may pose a threat to democratic values, as governments deploy aggressive surveillance to combat the pandemic. And there are shakeups in the senior ranks of U.S. counterterrorism. Ben tells you which not to hire, and invites you to tune in for his new . Shane says "Contagion" holds up—maybe too well. Susan has lessons for children about .
President Trump is growing so worried about the economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic that he’s talking about drastic action, including ending the lockdown in states that haven’t seen lots of infections. He’s right to be worried and right to be looking for dramatic solutions. He may even be well served in this case by his skepticism about giving government public health experts the last word on fateful economic decisions, for reasons I’ll discuss. But ending the lockdown in states with low infection numbers is the wrong answer when we haven’t tested widely; many of these states almost certainly have an underground contagion that will explode as soon as the lockdown is lifted. There are, however, responsible alternatives that might add.
