It’s high time we fought this virus the American way.
"I’ve never heard of a commander who complained about having too many tanks or who asked for a few artillery shells and not one too many. It’s high time we fought the virus the American way: with everything we’ve got."
— James E. Baker, former Chief Judge of the US Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces, former Wilhelm Fellow, MIT Center for International Studies
The administration has all the authority it needs to produce medical supplies and prepare for a potential vaccine, argues James E. Baker in a recent New York Times opinion piece.
Mr Baker, the director of Syracuse University’s Institute for Security Policy and Law, is a former Marine infantry officer, legal adviser to the National Security Council and chief judge of the US Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces. He was a Robert E Wilhelm Fellow at the MIT Center for International Studies prior to his current post at Syracuse University.
