"The name Lawfare refers both to the use of law as a weapon of conflict and, perhaps more importantly, to the depressing reality that America remains at war with itself over the law governing its warfare with others." Posts cover subjects such as cybersecurity, international law as it relates to U.S. military operations, and anti-terrorism legislation from nations around the world. Bloggers Benjamin Wittes and Susan Hennessey also co-host The Lawfare Podcast.
