I have accepted a position on a project at U.S. Special Operations Command. As a result, I won't be available to continue writing the 'This Week at War' column for Foreign Policy and Small Wars Journal.
I am very grateful to Dave, Bill, and the people at Foreign Policy for giving me the opportunity to write this column, which I did for three years and nine months. Not everyone gets such a chance, and for that I feel lucky. I also thank my editors at FP, who always made me look better, and my readers for their support and for keeping me in line.
I am also giving up my position as Managing Editor of SWJ, but will maintain a small role behind the scenes. I may also have something to say every now and then on the blog.
