These scores, logged and on display via a social networking app, are as connected to your identity as a driver’s license or Social Security number.

This Revolution Brought To You By Cosplay Politics

This Revolution Brought To You By Cosplay Politics

The Forgotten People Fighting the Forever War

A devastating incident in Afghanistan shows the perils of relying on Special Operations alone to fight the nation’s battles.Both the Trump and Obama administrations relied heavily on highly trained Special Forces units to keep Afghanistan from collapse. The strategy has kept recent episodes of the 21-year Afghan War out of the public eye, but it is failing to stabilize the country and is straining the United States military’s elite troops, who serve back-to-back combat tours without an end in sight and disproportionately give their lives in service of a war the public knows almost nothing...
