...a number of years ago, in Salt Lake, and compared notes for the first time. I was sad to hear that Allan died over the weekend. The story of tragedy and political decision-making he told contains lessons for generations. Here is the original story: https://t.co/D7tQO9qhvV

...courageous decision to trust a young reporter he did not know, working for a newspaper that he thought was faintly suspect. A few years ago he told me that was a fateful moment for him. Allan survived retribution, got the shuttles flying again, wrote a book. We met for lunch.

On a cold afternoon in Feb., 1986 — 35 years ago — I reached Allan McDonald, an engineer at Morton Thiokol, and convinced him to go public with the story of what led to the disastrous launch of the space shuttle Challenger, just three weeks before. He made a split-second...

And I would love to make this debate less one-sided, so @SangerNYT here's my invitation to join me on my cyber strategy chat series so we can finally hash out cyber escalation, signaling, cyber deterrence, & rules of the road in cyber ops. We can schedule at your convenience.

I think you give me too much credit as a medium of signaling, @JackieGSchneid. We are the echo, not the signal. But will happily join the chat, of course, and talk escalation, signaling and that elusive deterrence stuff. https://t.co/9CoIuQ6pC8

There is more than a little irony visiting here after a year of involuntary social distancing, but a walk with the boys around the pond still delivers. #waldenpond #thinkspring #soon @waldenpondstate https://t.co/Nk9z54Tcp6

Love #waldenpond. As a student, I used to make my way out there to escape the city, the library or writing a paper. https://t.co/eGcOFMGUIS

Um, how did he get a security clearance, let alone a political appointee job? https://t.co/kvXuUntK96

This is a superb question..... https://t.co/smqtxSWLdw

This is beautiful and wrenching, a visual remembrance of lives taken by covid and a bracing reminder to those of us who have come through this horror whole that we owe it to the departed to treat time as a lovely but fleeting gift. From an amazing NYT team https://t.co/slnRmR8Lkp

This was heartbreaking... https://t.co/RZhx5kZjGF

From Vietnam to Baghdad, Women Who Changed War Reporting - The Atlantic https://t.co/pGPlNhTOF0

Don’t miss this great review of Elizabeth Becker’s new book on three women who changed how journalists cover war. Compelling read. https://t.co/T9loNQpgO6

The rib of a wooly mammoth, dug up during the construction of a Vermont railway, has just been dated to 12,800 y ago, around the time humans began to walk the same arctic, rocky, treeless New England landscape, as glaciers retreated. https://t.co/DwyCeD6etG

I love everything about this story, @EllenBarryNYT. The idea that woolly mammoths walked where we hike. That the bone was found building a railroad that is also long extinct. That it sat on a shelf at Dartmouth for 170 years. https://t.co/rRT7wOFGcL

From @anniekarni takeout on @AmbRice46 “Ms. Rice occupies the West Wing office that was previously inhabited by Stephen Miller, President Donald J. Trump’s top policy adviser. ...” 1/2

A great @anniekarni pice on @AmbassadorRice. Full of insight. But the office-space anecdote stuck..,, https://t.co/q8liOeEdOu

Always creates a chill when you step off the sidewalk by the Old Statehouse in downtown Boston, with its crowded back streets, onto the exact site, marked on the road, where this happened. https://t.co/5qYCEhP7tN

Always an honor to join @mikiebarb and the talented staff of The Daily - today in an exploration of the MBS decision. Listen in. 🎧 And for more, today’s story on Biden’s cautious approach to foreign policy. https://t.co/vpiTF6JRlr https://t.co/1qcpLLuxaI

A look at what we have learned from Biden’s first major moves in foreign policy - deliberation, caution, maybe overcaution in case of MBS. https://t.co/WR1g7OoqQE

We are closely tracking Microsoft’s emergency patch for previously unknown vulnerabilities in Exchange Server software and reports of potential compromises of U.S. think tanks and defense industrial base entities. We encourage network owners to patch ASAP: https://t.co/Q2K4DYWQud

I can’t recall a previous case where the President’s national sec. adviser urged Americans to patch a newly discovered vulnerability. Didn’t happen in NotPetya, or more recently in SolarWinds. More evidence of how cyber has moved to center of nat sec strategy. @JakeSullivan46 https://t.co/HjfjzOy4Bz

The days of foreign policy by tweet are over. Deliberation and deputies’ meetings are back. But it is not Obama redux. There are new priorities, a harder edge when dealing with Russia, but perhaps a bit of over caution when it comes to the Saudis. https://t.co/Tb1dXCEvzX
