Why ISIS will not be defeated
In late August 2006, John Mearsheimer and Steve Walt published a book called ‘The Israel Lobby and US Foreign Policy‘, ever since life, says Mearsheimer, has been fundamentally altered. “If you criticise Israel or criticise the lobby, you pay a significant price and most people are unwilling to pay this price,” Mearsheimer told Al Jazeera. A specialist of international politics and author of several books, Mearsheimer maintains a critical view of United States foreign policy with special emphasis on its Middle East policies. – Al Jazeera
Former CIA officer on Trump
The recent ISIS attacks in Beirut, Sinai, Paris, and now San Bernardino, and subsequent discussion about Syrian refugees highlight the seriousness of the potential threats to the U.S. homeland. At the same time, however, the charged political rhetoric surrounding the topic may make it harder for law enforcement and intelligence professionals to deal with the threat. Donald Trump has even endorsed an effort to block Muslim travel and track all Muslim Americans. – The Cipher
Until the no fly list is fixed, it should not be used to restrict people’s freedoms
The No Fly List is in the news this week, just in time for the ACLU’s argument in federal court on Wednesday in its five-year-long challenge to the list’s redress process. Last night, in response to last week’s tragic attack in San Bernardino, California, President Obama urged Congress to ensure that people on the No Fly List be prohibited from purchasing guns. Last week, Republicans in Congress defeated a proposal that would have done just that. “I think it’s very important to remember people have due process rights in this country, and we can’t have some government official just arbitrarily put them on a list,” House Speaker Paul Ryan said. – American Civil Liberties Union
Quantum computers? Is quantum de-cryption next?
Google claims that a controversial computer it purchased in 2013 is capable of using quantum physics to solve math much faster than regular computers. They note that the type of math it solves is crucial to the development of artificial intelligence (AI). Companies such as Microsoft, IBM, and Google (as well as several governments) have been trying to develop quantum computers which use quantum mechanics to handle data. It is believed that quantum computers can make AI computers much more powerful. NASA has high hopes for the technology, as well. “It is a truly disruptive technology that could change how we do everything,” said Deepak Biswas, director of exploration technology at NASA’s Ames Research Center in Mountain View, California. – Futurism
