FACEBOOK’S FAILURE RE “HOW TO FIX SOCIAL Media Before It’s Too Late” [Jan. 28]: I wholeheartedly agree with how the early Facebook investor Roger McNamee views the company today. Indeed, the actions (or lack thereof) by Facebook’s management have brought about the subversion of democracy, and the sabotaging of privacy. Mark Zuckerberg has been blinded by the success of his platform, and he has failed to address criticism of Facebook promptly and adequately. It is disappointing that a tech leader does not take responsibility for the consequences of the technology that he developed. Ian Tay Yi En,SINGAPORE FIGHTING FAKE NEWS RE “FACEBOOK LET MY Government Target Me” [Jan. 28]: As a 16-year-old in the 10th grade, I use social media a lot. Concerned about the prevalence of misinformation online in my country, I am…

the u.s.-europe rift brings nuclear risks

IT’S BEEN THE STUFF OF NIGHTMARES EVER SINCE the Cold War: U.S. officers detect a Russian missile taking flight, and they have just a few minutes to counsel the President on how to react. Under the treaties that govern nuclear arms, those officers have the information they need to help make the right call—and to avoid such scenarios from arising in the first place. But these safeguards are now in jeopardy. Two of the treaties that buttress the world’s post–Cold War security architecture—setting strict limits and enforcing transparency on both the U.S. and Russian arsenals—are in the process of unraveling. The Trump Administration said Feb. 1 that it would withdraw the U.S. from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty, on the grounds that Russia had been violating it for years. In…

europe grapples with taking back citizens who joined isis

EUROPEAN OFFICIALS HAD A MIXED reaction to President Donald Trump’s tweet on Feb. 16 asking Britain, France, Germany and others to take back “over 800 ISIS fighters” whom U.S.-backed forces captured in Syria. The alternative, he warned, is that “we will be forced to release them.” The demand added to an already tense debate about how to deal with European citizens who fought for ISIS, as well as their wives and children. CALIPHATE COLLAPSE The U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) says ISIS-controlled territory, which once spanned an area the size of Britain, has shrunk to a single enclave in a village near the Iraqi border—and, despite analysts’ warnings that the group still poses a threat, the U.S. is planning to pull its troops from Syria. Roughly a third of the estimated…

trump’s emergency declaration will be challenged in court

IT DIDN’T TAKE LONG FOR PRESIDENT Trump’s Feb. 15 declaration of a national emergency to face its own crisis. Within days, an array of groups sued to block Trump’s effort to divert congressionally appropriated money to build a wall on the U.S.’s southern border. Most argued that Trump’s move violates Congress’s constitutional power over the federal purse. But the diversity of plaintiffs, from landowners to states to environmentalists, shows how broad a challenge Trump’s unilateral and largely unprecedented action faces. The highest-profile suit was brought by 16 states, including two on the border, California and New Mexico. It argues that Trump’s declaration could hurt local economies and military bases by diverting funds to build a border wall. The suit also contends that reallocating federal counternarcotics funds toward wall construction would endanger…
