The National Security Hole at the Heart of the Trump Transition

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 16:20:13 -0500

Donald Trump: A Modern Manchurian Candidate?

Wed, 11 Jan 2017 14:18:22 -0500

If Mr. Trump’s slavish devotion to Putin persists in office, it will continue to raise questions about the exact nature of their relationship. If the president-elect wants to put such suspicions to rest, he should get as tough with the Kremlin as he vows to do with America’s other enemies.

Donald Trump Must Take North Korea's Nuclear Threat Seriously

Wed, 04 Jan 2017 11:47:53 -0500

During his annual New Year’s address on Sunday, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s dropped a bombshell: He stated as part of his review of the past year's accomplishments that North Korea has entered “the final stage in preparations to test-launch” an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM). One that could hit the United States. To deal with the threat, the Trump administration should strengthen sanctions and find a way to work with China or, at a minimum, should isolate North Korea as an essential area of cooperation in an otherwise contentious U.S.-China relationship.

Why Trump Should Support a Probe Into Russia’s Hacking

Thu, 15 Dec 2016 16:48:19 -0500

As reports increasingly indicate that Russia interfered with the U.S. presidential election to benefit Donald Trump, the president-elect has forcefully pushed back on the intelligence community.

To do so would take our military service across the Digital Rubicon.
