Charlie Bolden interviewed in Politico article, “The Billionaut Boys Club”

“First of all, we really need to help the public understand that while these two flights are really geared toward — I guess space tourism is the term that people like to use. These two flights [are the] evolution of civilian or nongovernment spaceflight. “We’ve already done the really, really hard thing, which is to take humans into orbital spaceflight. And now we're coming back to the easier part of it, which is just transporting humans into space and right back [...]

Meghan O’Sullivan quoted in Bloomberg article, “Aramco Becomes Latest Victim of Cyber Attacks”

“Saudi Arabia and Russia clinched a deal for an OPEC+ production increase by partly submitting to the United Arab Emirates’ demands for a more generous quota. Still, the compromise leaves Riyadh and Moscow — the organization’s two biggest members — further on top. They made sure of that by awarding themselves the biggest increases. The dispute between Saudi Arabia and the UAE was essentially about the energy transition and the Emiratis being better prepared for it, Meghan L. O’Sullivan says…” Read [...]

Matt Waxman quoted in Defense One article, “Transfers Alone Won’t Close Guantanamo Bay”

“'Many of the remaining cases are so hard. Reducing the population through individual transfers makes the remainder problem smaller, but not very much easier,' said Matthew Waxman, a professor at Columbia University Law School. 'Is the Biden administration prepared to move [Khalid Sheikh Mohammed] and other 9/11 plotters and al Qaeda leaders into the United States?

Matt Waxman quoted in Lawfare article, “Repealing the ‘Zombie’ Iraq AUMF(s): A Clear Win for Constitutional Hygiene but Unlikely to End Forever Wars”

"Furthermore, from a constitutional hygiene perspective, it is discomforting to see decades-old force authorizations remain valid law.

"The Pentagon is also considering establishing a permanent naval task force in the Pacific to counter China’s growing aggression, according to sources interviewed by Politico. Although not yet finalized, Politico notes that the initiative 'would add muscle to President Joe Biden’s tough talk on China and send a signal that the new U.S. administration is serious about cracking down on Beijing’s military buildup and aggressive behavior in the Pacific region.' According to Elbridge Colby, a former Trump Pentagon official, the initiative [...]
