We're going to go back a couple of years this weekend to our Lawfare episode from 2011. We'll be back live next week.
Never in our history have we fought a war where law, lawyers, and layers of legalese have impacted all levels of the war, Political, Strategic, Operational, and Tactical.
Why do we find ourselves here and in what direction are we going?
From Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and even domestically, the legal definition of the use of military power is evolving.
To discuss the impact of Lawfare for the full hour with Sal from the blog "CDR Salamander" and EagleOne from "EagleSpeak" will be David Glazier, CDR USN (Ret.).
David is a Professor of Law at Layola Law School in Los Angles. Prior to Layola, he was a lecturer at the University of Virginia School of Law and a research fellow at the Center for National Security Law, where he conducted research on national security, military justice and the law of war. He also served as a pro bono consultant to Human Rights First.
Before attending law school, Glazier served twenty-one years as a US Navy surface warfare officer. In that capacity, he commanded the USS George Philip (FFG-12), served as the Seventh Fleet staff officer responsible for the US Navy-Japan relationship, the Pacific Fleet officer responsible for the US Navy-PRC relationship, and participated in UN sanctions enforcement against Yugoslavia and Haiti. Glazier has a JD from the University of Virginia School of Law, an MA from Georgetown University in government/national security studies, and holds a BA in history from Amherst College.
Pilots N Paws. Doesn't that just have an awesome ring to it?
It gets even better. Pilots N Paws is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that connects volunteer pilots with shelter animals needing transport to forever homes across the country. While Pilots N Paws doesn't organize or arrange these transports, it does provide a common forum online for those involved to schedule and arrange flights, overnight foster care or shelter, and other related activites. The organization is officially based in Landrum, South Carolina, but has volunteers nationwide.
ABOUT KATHLEEN QUINN Kathleen Quinn is executive director for Pilots N Paws. She has been volunteering with the organization since its launch in February 2008. In her new staff role, she will design, develop and implement strategic plans to grow Pilots N Paws, which includes a focus on fundraising and social media.
A 2008 graduate of Miami University, Kathleen earned degrees in business, entrepreneurship, and American studies. She graduated from Georgetown University with a master's degree in journalism. While in D.C., Kathleen also served as a congressional intern.
As a child, Kathleen had aspirations of one day becoming a veterinarian. "Although we lived in the suburbs, growing up, our house resembled a mini petting zoo. Amongst the critters were gerbils, dogs, a cat, box turtles, a salamander, a hermit crab, even chicks we hatched from an incubator. Across the street from was the Metropark animal nature center, so I was always rescuing wounded wildlife and takem them across the street to be rehabilitated."
It is all around us; from poor program decisions to significant budgetary stresses that are only recently starting to bite - the large US Navy Fleet straddling the globe is contracting.
What are the initial, second & third order effects of the decreasing presence of the US Navy. Is it permanent, relative, or can fewer numbers be made up in other ways?
Join Sal from CDR Salamander and EagleOne of EagleSpeak in a wide ranging discussion along with their guest Seth Cropsey, Senior Fellow from The Hudson Institute and author of the new book, Mayday: The Decline of American Naval Supremacy..
Change is in the air as we look at sequester, a new SecDef, France in North Africa, preparing for the last fighting season in Afghanistan, and what looks like a long decade of budget stress.
Is this a pivot-point of opportunity, or just a winter of our naval discontent?
No guests, no set agenda - open floor and open phones. No one but Sal from "CDR Salamander" and EagleOne from "EagleSpeak" for the full hour. If there is a topic you want discussed, call in or roll it in to the chat room.
