On deadline, so light posting for the next few days. Meanwhile, follow me on Twitter. Among other developments: Simon & Schuster will publish SPIES FOR HIRE in paperback next May. It will include an epilogue detailing the latest updates on outsourced intelligence since my book came out last spring, including the ODNI’s recent confirmation of my 2007 scooplet that 70 percent of the U.S. intelligence budget is spent on private contracts. If you want the hardback now, you can always get in on Amazon.
I've just started reposting here after a nine month absence. Look for some nice changes to the site and regular updates on U.S. intelligence, privatized spying, Korea, Japan and music. My pages section at the top (just below that incredible photo from South Korea in 1960) includes links to much of my work on Korea, Japan, etc., over the years. Meanwhile, follow me on Twitter @TimothyS and read my blog at TheNation.com.
