Archive of My Clips on LIGNET 6/1-6/30/12

In Foreign Affairs on July 1, 2012 at 3:10 pm

These are an assortment of the clips I have written while working for Newsmax’s new site, Langley Intelligence Group Network (LIGNET) from June 1 – June 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. Due to my brief internship at the Santa Barbara News-Press I was much less productive than normal for LIGNET. In addition, it feels exponentially harder to find stories about the nine remaining countries.
