Dear Mr. Putin….

….let’s play chess.

Dear Mr. Putin is a newsletter about the intersection of politics and intelligence. We’ll look at current events, defend against information warfare and plan for the battles to come, because the enemy won’t give up when Trump is defeated.

Sign up if you’d like, and invite your friends. There will be free posts as well as the eventual main subscriber content and discussions, and I’d rather write than talk about writing, so l’m off to get to it.


As well as free stories now and again, there will be an email “Best of the Web” round-up post of national security links and stories, sent out at least once a week. This will only go to email sign-ups (paid and free) and won’t be visible in the archives on the site, so please do consider joining our email list. To get the free version, just select ‘none’ on the subscription page.
