The Shadow Government

Wednesday, January 7, 2009  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Foreign Policy has launched an overhauled web site, and one of the features is a blog devoted to center-right analysis of the world and the incoming Administration’s foreign policy, The Shadow Government.

Here are the bios of the contributors. Most of these are not familiar names, but each contributor is an experienced, thoughtful foreign policy professional. This is a very good idea, and I’ll see which of them are willing to do interviews on a regular basis.

Other bloggers at the new site: the estimable Tom Ricks and Dan Drezner.

UPDATE: Marc Ambinder reports that Dennis Ross will handle Iran for the new Administration, Richard Holbroke Pakistan, India and Afghanistan, and Richard Haass the Middle East.

All three are experienced professional diplomats, and as with the rest of the president-elect’s national security appointments, reflect a much more serious foreign policy than the presidential campaign implied. The president-elect won’t be headed to unconditional talks with Ahmadinejad any time soon.

As noted below, conservatives concerned with the national security of the United States have much to be thankful for in the early peopling of the new Administration’s senior foreign policy-related posts.
