The U.S. is currently facing international conflict with Russia and China, but politicians should ensure that they do better quality due diligence and avoid the bad thinking that led to the costly Iraq War - while Russia's invasion of Ukraine and China's desire to forcibly incorporate Taiwan could have much greater risks than the Iraq War ever did as both countries have nuclear capabilities and are much more potent than Iraq was 20 years ago.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation and MuckRock News, in partnership with the Association of Alternative Newsmedia, have named those who have thwarted public access to government information, launching their annual “awards” for agencies and officials, The Foilies, to celebrate Sunshine Week, which seeks to promote government transparency, and included the FBI using an informant at a Monkees concert at which they reported the band's anti-war sentiment to add to their report on the band; the US Southern Command adding hundreds of white redactions to color paintings and drawings created by prisoners detained at Guantanamo Bay; and the National Security Agency's "Glomar response" of neither confirming nor denying the existence of requested information.
Twitter has been fighting in court for over six years to disclose law enforcement orders it received in 2014, which the government claims are a matter of national security, and a federal judge has dismissed Twitter’s lawsuit, although there is hope that the company will appeal this decision in order to defend its right to share information about secret government surveillance orders for its users' information, and in a related case the Ninth Circuit upheld the national security letter (NSL) statute against a First Amendment challenge from the EFF on behalf of their clients CREDO Mobile and Cloudflare.
The article includes various news pieces, including an industry report suggesting that firms should stop layoffs and billing rate increases, JP Morgan blaming a former executive over the Jeffrey Epstein scandal, Bankman-Fried lawyers suggesting a possible delay, a senator pushing for access to classified documents, feds investigating specialized police forces, and corporations running from their diversity pledges amid white backlash.
Trump's complaints about prosecutorial misconduct, despite being completely untethered to reality, are shown to be unfounded by the Washington Post's recent article on the FBI's internal struggle and their ability to handle the search of the former president's home last August with kid gloves.
Was ist National Security Law?
National Security Law is concerned with protecting a country from internal and external threats. It encompasses various legal measures that are designed to safeguard the nation's political, economic, and social interests, while respecting human rights and democratic values. Key provisions include restrictions on free speech and assembly, surveillance and intelligence gathering, and enforcement of criminal and immigration laws. In the US, the National Security Agency (NSA) is responsible for collecting and analyzing intelligence data to detect and prevent threats to national security, while the Department of Justice enforces national security laws and prosecutes those who violate them.
