Rational Security, Episode #8: The Float Like a Tweet Sting Like a Ray Edition

This week on the podcast, Shane and Ben welcome back Jen Daskal to talk terrorism and technology. Police phone surveillance becomes a thorny legal issue in a Florida case. The Justice Department says it will prosecute people who proliferate ISIS social media. And Ben offers a peek of his testimony before the House Armed Services Committee on a new authorization to use military force against ISIS.

Plus, should Congress and the administration tear up the proposed AUMF and look to these two documents instead?


Jen considers the power of music to blunt radicalism.


Shane gets an earful from German journalists about reaction to the Snowden leaks.


And Ben considers whether this walking stick/deadly weapon is a metaphor for rational security.
