The Big Bet: New Rules of War

Brookings Foreign Policy experts have come together to create a series of policy memos addressing the “big bets”—opportunities to strengthen President Obama’s second term—and “black swans,” the low probability, high-impact events that could derail the administration’s priorities. These were released at a public event on Thursday, January 17. Senior Fellow Peter Singer says a “Big Bet” for the Obama administration would be taking a leadership role in charting how, when and where drones and cyber warfare can be used.
