Ok, I’m trying something different with this newsletter, which I’m calling Un-Diplomatic. Its purpose: Honest, undiplomatic takes on the politics of foreign policy from me, Van Jackson.
Doublespeak and rhetorical hedging pervade Washington. I hate it. Foreign policy wonks should be more candid than politicos and government officials, but self-censorship and political detachment too often makes the most career sense. It’s like we’re all protecting some alternative future where we get Senate-confirmed.
This newsletter is a corrective to the trend. Unfiltered analysis in my personal style, which (I hope!) you’ll quickly grow to love. You can subscribe to it for free and receive new content on a twice-monthly basis. Just click the button below.
