Ok, ok, it’s been a full month since the last episode. But good things come to those who wait! We are back, and hope you’ll tune in as co-hosts Bobby Chesney and Steve Vladeck discuss the latest in national security legal news, including:
- The questions associated with neutrality and co-belligerency (and especially “qualified neutrality”) in relation to US and allied support to Ukraine in the Ukraine-Russia War
- The Supreme Court’s decision to grant a stay in Lloyd Austin v. U.S. Navy SEALS 1-26, in relation to a district court order (based on the Religious Freedom Restoration Act) barring the Navy from enforcing its policy precluding deployment of personnel who refuse COVID vaccination)
- Another GTMO detainee (Hassan bin Attash of Yemen) cleared for release
- A guilty verdict against an Islamic State member (a formerly-British citizen who was part of the quartet known as “the Beatles”) charged with involvement in the horrific abuse of captives
And, yes, lots and lots of crowing over the early-season success of the Mets, along with other frivolity!
