"Chattanooga Shootings: Why Were Our Soldiers So Vulnerable?"

Op-Ed, CNN.com

By Juliette Kayyem, Lecturer in Public Policy

"Our laws are based around the notion that the military is not an armed entity on U.S. soil unless in times of insurrection or when civic institutions are unable to address a crisis. Every state and city has police for that function, and failing that, would then turn to the National Guard troops, first under the direction of the state's governor."

"22M Americans Affected By Latest Data Breach: Why It Matters To You"

Media Feature

By Juliette Kayyem, Lecturer in Public Policy

"As someone who has personally undergone the rigorous clearance process, I can tell you that the information these documents hold goes far beyond my Social Security number or the threat of credit card fraud. The government demands extensive information from potential employees — information that is deeply personal, ranging from individual medical history to the whereabouts and livelihoods of distant cousins."

"Why July 4 Terror Precautions Were Necessary"

Op-Ed, CNN.com

By Juliette Kayyem, Lecturer in Public Policy

"In an age of lone-wolf attackers, it is even rarer to be able to intercept any communication that would tell law enforcement who — of the thousands of people who toy with ISIS online — is going to attack and when."

"Declare War on Climate Change?"

Op-Ed, CNN.com

By Juliette Kayyem, Lecturer in Public Policy

"The world is physically changing and that will put demands on future U.S. military officers. For the Coast Guard in particular, the changes in water — from the opening of the Arctic Ocean due to warming atmosphere to the devastation we have seen (and will see) in coastal nations — will bring about a brand new world order. This administration should know. Now that the Arctic is relatively ice-free for several months each year, a new and lasting occurrence, the administration recently approved offshore drilling in the Arctic, bringing a new challenge to the Coast Guard's response and recovery efforts."

"Abu Sayyaf Raid: Messing with the Heads of ISIS"

Op-Ed, CNN.com

By Juliette Kayyem, Lecturer in Public Policy

"..[T]he orchestrated U.S. government announcements about the documents, computers and other financial materials that were captured in the raid have got to make a lot of ISIS leaders very nervous. And it is likely to make members of ISIS who have avoided the violence of the battlefield — men like Sayyaf — believe that not even an office job is safe."
