Today I published an op-ed in the NY Times, arguing that the "Yemen model" approach to counterterrorism is deeply flawed. I also suggest a way forward for the Obama administration in selecting a new CIA director.
Fortunately or unfortunately, as the case may be, I had to leave Denver early this morning for a flight back home (I just found out there was WIFI on the plane - thank you, Delta) and so I have not had a chance to discuss the piece with all the people who have been tweeting at me.
Political activism may get people invested in politics, and affect urgently needed change, but it comes at the expense of tolerance and healthy democratic norms.
