Potomac Institute for Policy Studies
Tevi Troy, PhD, is a Senior Fellow at the Potomac Institute for Policy Studies, a Visiting Senior Fellow at the Hudson Institute, and a writer and consultant on health care and domestic policy. Dr. Troy previously served as Deputy Secretary of the US Department of Health and Human Services. At a recent hearing in the Senate Judiciary Committee, Dr. Troy testified on the problem of "agency capture," in which government agencies get too cozy with industries they are supposed to regulate. The hearing came in the wake of allegations that the federal Minerals Management Service's closeness to oil companies contributed to the BP oil spill disaster.

Potomac Institute for Policy Studies Senior Fellow Amb. David Smith says friendly overtures from the US and EU toward Georgia bear watching. In a recent issue of the Georgian publication 24 Saati, he notes that US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner and European Union High Representative Catherine Ashton have all visited Georgia in recent weeks and professed their support. Amb. Smith writes that western nations have security and energy interests in the region, at the same time that quiet skepticism may be growing about Russia's motives. "In contrast," he writes, "Georgia is looking better." But how far will western nations go to back up their newfound friend if Russia decides to intervene? Click below to read the article in full.
Potomac Institute for Policy Studies Senior Fellow David Smith writes in a recent issue of the Georgian publication Tabula about deadly bombings carried out against Ugandan fans gathered to watch the World Cup. Amb. Smith writes that the terrorist group that claimed responsibility, Somalia's Al Shabab, is not only a product of the failed Somalian state but also shows signs of becoming increasingly radical and violent. "In some senses, Afghanistan has come to East Africa," writes Amb. Smith, who warns that the international community must carefully calibrate its response. Click below to read the article in full.
A Discussion Forum, "Intelligence Management and Oversight: How Are We Doing?" at the Institute on July 26 posed provocative questions about challenges facing the intelligence community, especially in the current "culture of disclosure" represented by the WikiLeaks case. The program was presented by the Advanced Technical Intelligence Association in conjunction with the Potomac Institute for Policy Studies and the Intelligence and National Security Association, and featured guest speaker Rep. Mike Rogers of Michigan. Click here to watch C-SPAN's coverage of the program in full.
Potomac Institute for Policy Studies Senior Fellow Tevi Troy, PhD, is a former deputy secretary of the US Department of Health and Human Services. In a recent article for Politico, he scrutinizes the Obama administration's reaction to the BP oil spill - and argues that too many layers of bureaucracy are muddling both the response to the disaster and subsequent investigations into how it happened. Writes Dr. Troy, "The problem is that if everyone is responsible for the response, ultimately, no one is." Click here to read the article in full.
