In honor of Presidents Day, Just Security will be on an abbreviated schedule with a lower volume of posts than normal. If any major, time-sensitive developments occur, we will do our best to address them. [Update: stay tuned for a piece by Ryan Goodman analyzing Reince Priebus’s interviews about Russia on this past Sunday’s news morning shows.] The Early Edition, our morning news roundup, will be back tomorrow (sign up here to receive it in your inbox each morning). And don’t forget to follow us on Twitter (@just_security) and Facebook for the latest.
“However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.”
― George Washington
