Matthew Duss (Foundation for Middle East Peace) and James Joyner (Outside the Beltway, The Atlantic Council)

On Foreign Entanglements, James explains the Atlantic Council’s shadowy supporters, which may or may not include “friends of Hamas.” Matt wonders whether Hagel’s critics really are this stupid, or just think their audience is.
