Here are some favorite blogs and other good sites that caught our eye recently:
Danger Room: The bright mind behind one of the Bad Guys Blog's favorite sites, DefenseTech, has moved over to the Wired Blog Network. Check out Noah Shachtman's latest effort, Danger Room. His recent posts run the gamut from far out ("mystery weapons" and teleportation) to the downwind characteristics of chlorine gas attacks.
Haft of the Spear: Blogger Michael Tanji is a 20-year veteran of the intelligence community, with service at the Defense Intelligence Agency, the National Security Agency, and the National Reconnaissance Office. He brings insider experience and a skeptic's eye to analyzing the sorry state of U.S. intelligence. (See, for example, how he tore apart our report on the FBI's translation program.)
The Insider: Our pals at the ABC News Investigative Unit put out Insider Daily Investigative Report, a great summary of the latest news on terrorism and the war in Iraq. Includes highlights of the best national security reporting, wire coverage, and clips from the Arab press. And it's free.
Behind the Lines:Our favorite daily feed comes from CQ Homeland Security. Congressional Quarterly's David Morrison does a masterful job at surveying the flow of news on terrorism, homeland security, and the state of the world. Also a bargain: free online or by E-mail.
At-Largely: Larisa Alexandrovna is investigative editor at Raw Story, the popular alternative news site. A native of Odessa, Ukraine, a poet, and a 9/11 survivor, Alexandrovna started at-Largely as "a blog by investigative journalists for investigative journalists." Worth a visit.
