Back on HLS Watch

Filed under: General Homeland Security — by Christian Beckner on June 22, 2013

This is Christian Beckner, the founder of this site back in 2005, seven and a half years ago.  As longtime readers of the site will know, it’s been more than six years since the last time I authored a post on HLS Watch, due to my employment from 2007 to 2013  on the professional staff of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, working for Sen. Lieberman.

I left the Committee staff back in January and started a new job as Deputy Director of the Homeland Security Policy Institute at the George Washington University.   Given this job change, I’m planning now to start posting again at HLS Watch, starting this weekend, although not at the frequency I maintained in the past.   I’m also going to be increasingly active on Twitter – you can follow my comments there at http://www.twitter.com/cjbeckner

I’d like to thank Jonah, Phil, Chris, Jessica, Mark, Arnold and others for keeping this site going in the last six years.  And I’m looking forward to re-engaging in the public dialogue on all of the issues that this site covers.

Welcome back! Bill

P.S. Have fun with the new job. HSPI has done some really good things since its establishment.

And guessing you are aware of some of my predictions once Senator Lieberman gone but not forgotten.
