  • The Geopolitics of Oil

    After decades of relative stability, the U.S. energy revolution is beginning to shift the dynamics of the energy market. Once dependent on the Middle East for much of its energy, the U.S. is now producing more of its own - potentially freeing America to pursue a new foreign policy in the region.

  • The Media and Foreign Policy

    The US has thrived on its vibrant and free press since the Founding Fathers first put the concept into law in the Bill of Rights as an important, independent check on power.

  • War Powers: Congress and the President

    The Constitution of the United States divides oversight of the military between the executive and legislative branches. However, since the September 11th attacks, three consecutive presidents have pushed the limits of their ability to use military force - and Congress has done little to stop them. What is Congress' responsibility to oversee the use of force?

  • China's Maritime Build-Up
