Looking Back to Move Forward

The US men's national team poses for a photo before the start of a World Cup preparation match against Azerbaijan at Candlestick Park in San Francisco on May 27, 2014.

Karen Greenberg, the head of Fordham’s Center on National Security, looks at how we think about national security a year after Edward Snowden announced the NSA leaks, and a week after a prisoner exchange freed an American soldier and five Guantanamo detainees. Plus: a round-up of the political news out of Albany; a program that runs cooking classes in NYC public schools, teaching kids not just how to cook but how to shop for healthy food on a budget; and a look at the US men’s soccer team’s style and a preview of what’s to come as the team heads to Brazil for the World Cup.
