How The Doha Agreement Guaranteed US Failure In Afghanistan
This essay examines how the poorly negotiated US-Taliban agreement undermined the Afghan government and institutions and facilitated the Taliban’s rise to power in August 2021. The rush to conclude a deal with the Taliban undermined US counterterrorism interests and emboldened hard-liners within the Taliban movement. The United States must recommit to human rights and counterterrorism in Afghanistan and avoid rewarding the Taliban with diplomatic recognition until they have earned it.
The Hezbollah Paradox
Hezbollah has evolved over the past four decades into the most powerful military and political force in Lebanon. It is Iran’s greatest force enabler, allowing the Islamic Republic to exert influence across the Middle East. But Hezbollah’s determination to protect its independent military status in the face of growing opposition in Lebanon has created a host of grave challenges that could threaten the organization’s primacy in the years ahead.

Understanding Police Reliance On Private Data
Private entities play a substantial and growing role across the criminal system. It is both impractical and undesirable to eliminate all private influences. Instead, policy makers can distinguish beneficial private influences from harmful ones by focusing on those private entities with the closest relationship to law enforcement. These entities have fewer incentives to guard against law enforcement overreach and thus deserve heightened scrutiny.
Private Data/Public Regulation
This article argues that, as a matter of constitutional law, government agencies that engage in policing cannot collect digital data, particularly about individuals for whom there is no suspicion of wrongdoing, without a sufficient regulatory scheme in place. A sufficient regulatory scheme justifies collection, achieves a public end, and has adequate protections for individual rights. Unauthorized and unregulated bulk digital collection of surveillance data simply may not occur.
