If you follow this blog you are probably well aware that it covers a wide range of topics (some might say it’s all over the place) including a span of history of some sixty years. Generally it has to do with issues of national security, from the assassinations of the sixties across to covert and deniable warfare and more conventional aspects of military security. I work with my friend Stu Wexler on a variety of research and book projects but each of us also focus on some of our special interests as well. In his most recent work Stu has been very focused on the threat of the ultra right in America, something he and I explored in The Awful Grace of God and which he has pursued into more contemporary times in his most recent book.
This last week the Washington Post asked him for some insight into certain of the potential threats related to today’s race issues and increasingly militant confrontations. I helped him a bit during the preparation of the article, offered some comments and made sure he didn’t take any wording (little humor here) from anywhere for it without using quotation marks or a citation.
The article is strictly his though and I encourage everyone to give it a read and comment to him on Facebook if you find it worthwhile….following Stu gives you a good dose of sports talk as well, something totally missing from anything I write.
