CNAS Whale Swallows National-Security Journalists Whole

New CNAS release:

Top National Security Reporters Eric Schmitt & Thom Shanker Join CNAS as Writers in Residence

WASHINGTON, D.C., October 15, 2009 – The Center for a New American Security (CNAS) is pleased to announce that distinguished journalists Eric Schmitt and Thom Shanker, who cover terrorism, the military, and national security for The New York Times, will join CNAS as Senior Writers in Residence in November 2009.

While at CNAS, Schmitt and Shanker will work on a book titled “Counterstrike,” an examination of the evolution of American counterterrorism strategy since the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. The book will be published by Times Books/Henry Holt & Co.

Looks like a great book! I’d want to read that book!

But your boy is passed over again. CNAS, by my count, has either hosted or is hosting Tom Ricks, David Cloud, Greg Jaffe, Robert Kaplan and now Schmitt and Shanker. My guess for the next class? Yochi “all-important Penn Class of ’99” Dreazen and Julian “not that one” Barnes.

See, people think I’m selling out to this COIN crowd, but I couldn’t even find a market if I wanted to sell out…
