Thanks to CSIS for taking the time to make these in depth pieces available to the public; many thanks also for encouraging the 2008 candidates to speak on international affairs--an area presidents MUST have clarity and vision on.
I haven't been subscribing very long, but it seems very good. I understand more about the situation in Iraq than if I had watched television.
Thanks for providing a series of insightful programs on a broad variety of international affairs topics. These programs have a refreshing ideological balance and and address issues that receive at best cursory attention from the media.
