Archive of My Clips on LIGNET 6/15-10/18

In Foreign Affairs on October 18, 2011 at 12:26 am

These are an assortment of the clips I have written while working for Newsmax’s new site, Langley Intelligence Group Network (LIGNET). These articles were published on their site following review by their Analysis Team. Shorter pieces (InBriefs) do not require any sign up, however longer articles (Analysis) do require a subscription to the site. Four of my articles have been the cover story on the LIGNET site.

In the future I will be uploading an archive of my LIGNET articles biweekly.
