This week, John Cappel joins Michael to discuss the Overseas Contingency Operations budget. Cappel work on Budgeting for Foreign Affairs and Defense (BFAD) at the Stimson Center. John and his colleague, Russel Rumbaugh, just put out a report “A Step Backward, or More to Go? FY15 Overseas Contingency Operations Request.”
The Stimson Center focusses on global security challenges, and Cappel and his colleagues in BFAD look into where the money is actually going.
Cappel explains how OCO, or Overseas Contingency Operations, contains budget requests that are like supplemental war budgets. Historically, supplemental budgets often arose in response to some kind of unexpected event, like a natural disaster or some kind of military conflict. In the past, these supplemental budgets gave way to budgets that took into account the actual conflicts and the supplemental budget requests went away. The OCO, however, has been around for a long time now.
Many feel that the OCO budget has become a bit of a slush fund. DoD, for its part, is beginning to shift some of the OCO-type requests into the general budget.
The OCO Budget also has requests for $5 Billion for the Counterterrisom Partnership Fund (CTPF) with $4 billion for DoD and $1 billion to the Department of State. There’s also the European Reassurance Initiative with a price tag of $1 billion which mostly goes to DoD. Cappel refers to both as “head scratchers.”

Freedom Radio, 10 a.m. ET, Wed, May 9: Charles “Cully” Stimson of the Heritage Foundation joins us to discuss the military commission of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. Author Robin Gaby Fisher will tell us about 'The Woman Who Wasn't There'.
Charles Stimson is a nationally recognized expert in national security, homeland security and crime control at The Heritage Foundation. He served as deputy assistant secretary of defense for detainee affairs. He advised then-Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and coordinated the Pentagon’s global detention policy and operations, including at Guantanamo and in Iraq and Afghanistan. He has worked as a trial lawyer, including as a JAG officer, and currently serves the Reserve Trial Judiciary as a military trial judge.
Robin Gaby Fisher and Angelo J. Guglielmo, Jr. wrote of Tania Head’s astonishing account of her experience on September 11, 2001— from crawling through the carnage and chaos to escaping the seventy-eighth-floor sky lobby of the burning south tower to losing her fiancé in the collapsed north tower — transformed her into one of the great victims and heroes of that tragic day. But there was something very wrong with Tania’s story — a terrible secret that would break the hearts and challenge the faith of all those she claimed to champion.

Anthony Stimson owner operator of Australian Wildlife Displays, Wild Expo and the Australian Frog + Reptile show. Talks about the ramifications of cage sizes to be implemented into the NSW reptile keeping system and the effects it will have on every reptile keeper.
We will also cover some of the recent reptile keeper licensing system changes, that took place in Victoria!
If you have a license and care about the future of the hobby, then this episode is not to be missed!
We will be discussing Monitors with David Kirshner (Crocdoc) this week!
David grew up in central Canada, where for some strange reason (given their scarcity there) he developed an interest in reptiles from a very young age. By the time he was in his late teens, much to the dismay of his parents (and to the embarrassment of his present day self), he was keeping everything from boas and Burmese pythons to iguanas and tegus, even an American alligator, in the family basement.
When he reached university age, David turned his hobby into his profession by studying zoology. He then pursued his first love for his post-graduate degree, by choosing to research saltwater crocodiles for his PhD, which brought him to Australia. Lace monitors was a species he had been fascinated with from as far back as his childhood reptile keeping days in Canada. A chance meeting with Australian herping legend Anthony Stimson at an Australia Day party lead to David acquiring a hatchling ‘lacie’ and the rest, as they say, is history, for David has been keeping and breeding them since.
We expect that this will be one of the great podcast monitor discussions of all time!

All of the national space agencies are worried about it and you should be worried about it too. Space junk flies uncontrolled. It can and will be deadly. The finest space ship or satellite could be destroyed by the smallest piece of garbage trapped in Earth's orbit. K. Leslie Graves. The EU Code of Conduct for Outer Space Activities and the Stimson Center’s Model Code of Conduct have made it part of the international debate. What is space junk and what are some of the considerations? Abstract-: Space debris has become a growing concern in recent years, since collisions at orbital velocities can be highly damaging to functioning satellites and can also result into more space debris. Some spacecraft, like the International Space Station, are now armored to deal with this hazard. This paper is a semi-technical survey of the expanding literature of the subject. The paper explores the different sources and mitigation methods of space debris. We have proposed some methods to deal with this problem of space debris. We have also highlighted the shortcomings of some of the proposed methods found in the literature and we have further proposed some modifications in some of those methods. On this show, these guests discuss their internationally presented work entitled SPACE DEBRIS AND ITS MITIGATION. Keywords: Space debris mitigation, orbit, nano mesh, nanobots and fuel cell.
