Rational Security, Episode #31: The “Empty Chair” Edition

Shane goes on vacation, abandoning the gang to its fate. Brookings scholar Dan Byman steps in and brings a National Counterterrorism Center Calendar, which sparks a discussion of how to categorize terrorist acts that take place within warfare. Ben talks about a recent U.S. court decision that found the war in Afghanistan isn’t really over—no matter what the president says. And Tamara talks about the president’s Iran speech.

Dan shows off a large Yemeni dagger.
