Jeff Stein is rebooting his well-known and professionally respected SpyTalk column.

I got to know Jeff Stein several years ago and was immediately impressed by his skills as an investigative journalist and subject matter expert in intelligence and national security.  

As my defence page has an increasing readership I’m writing with the good news that Jeff Stein is rebooting his legendary SpyTalk column in September as a newsletter on the Substack platform. You may remember Jeff, who I’ve worked with in the past, as the Spytalk columnist for years at Newsweek, and before that, at The Washington Post and before that Congressional Quarterly (where he was also the founding editor of the influential CQ/Homeland Security).  Although Jeff is widely known for his many scoops and steady stream of much-needed corrective context on breaking national security stories this time around he’s added to his team such veteran journalists as Elaine Shannon, TIME magazine’s “queen of drugs and thugs,” and Peter Eisner, a prolific investigative author and former deputy foreign editor at The Post.  And more.

I hope you’ll follow Jeff and his professional team at https://spytalk.substack.com/about  and sign up.

High quality reporting which Jeff is renowned for costs money, so I also hope you’ll be an early paying customer. (It’s really cheap, only $9.95 a month.) But you can also sample the wares for free for a while, beginning in mid-September.
