Atlantic Council managing editor James Joyner asks in The National Interest, "Why Should Congress and the Courts Care About Snooping If Citizens Don't?"
J. Peter Pham, director of the Atlantic Council’s Michael S. Ansari Africa Center, was interviewed by Brian Todd on CNN’s Situation Room in a segment on the discovery of evidence in northern Mali that al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) may have acquired surface-to-air missiles.
Atlantic Council Managing Editor James Joyner published an editorial in The National Interest arguing it's better to "trust in those charged with safeguarding our nation's secrets to do so honorably than to make every disgruntled Army private or low-level contractor a de facto national classification authority."
Senior Fellow Frederic C. Hof of the Council's Hariri Middle East Center speaks with host Scott Simon of NPR Weekend Edition about the worsening crisis in Syria and the United States' limited military and political options.
The Michael S. Ansari Africa Center and Brent Scowcroft Center on International Security launched the Atlantic Council’s Counter-Piracy Task Force (CPTF) report, Managing the Global Response to Maritime Piracy. The CPTF report is a product of a series of meetings with a standing group of high-level strategic actors—former US administration officials, distinguished members of academia, international organizations, and transportation/logistics industry executives—and ad hoc expert invitees, who convened to define the problem of piracy and develop policy recommendations for the US government and partner countries as well as maritime stakeholders.
The event featured a keynote speech by Andrew Shapiro, assistant secretary of state for political-military affairs. Barry Pavel, director, Brent Scowcroft Center on International Security, and J. Peter Pham, director, Michael S. Ansari Africa Center, presented the report and participated in a Q&A session with the audience.
