Archive of My Clips on LIGNET 5/1-5/31/12

In Foreign Affairs on May 31, 2012 at 2:21 pm

These are an assortment of the clips I have written while working for Newsmax’s new site, Langley Intelligence Group Network (LIGNET) from May 1 – May 31. 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. Since starting work at LIGNET I’ve written about 184 countries. It’s becoming harder for me to write stories about the nine remaining countries.
