Archive of My Clips on LIGNET 9/1-9/30/12

In Foreign Affairs on September 30, 2012 at 10:16 am

These are an assortment of the clips I have written while working for Newsmax’s new site, Langley Intelligence Group Network (LIGNET) from September 1 – September 30. 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 186 countries. It is exponentially harder to find stories about the seven remaining countries – Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Monaco, Nauru, Samoa, San Marino, and Vanuatu.
