I write The Political Commentator, which has been picked up by national publications such as The Wall Street Journal, Chicago Sun-Times and Houston Chronicle. My articles focus on national security, the war on terror, foreign policy, politics, politicians and any other person or event that has the potential to affect the United and the worldr. Knowing that Americans have short memories and our enemy's great patience, my hope is that these articles will help keep us vigilant and aware.
