On 15 May, Russian President Vladimir Putin officially announced what is being called a programme for the strategic economic security of the nation. This set of initiatives that will run through to 2030 can be found on the official Russian government website that publishes decrees and other legal announcements.

On July 7, 2005 Al Qaeda attacked several transportation targets in London, killing 52, and Irish Republican Army attacks (IRA) regularly struck at the United Kingdom in the decades before Al Qaeda began attacking targets in Europe.

    Last week, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Robert S. Mueller “to serve as a Special Counsel for the United States Department of Justice.” The order specified that “Section 600.4 through 600.10 of Title 28 of the Code of Federal Regulations are applicable to the Special Counsel.” Perhaps the most important provision is § 600.7. Promulgated shortly after the Independent Counsel statute expired in July 1999, this regulation imposes an important constraint on the executive bran…

OMB is questioning OGE’s authority about which, OGE insists, there can be no question, and the ethics office is taking its case to Congress. We are back again to the question of whether th…
