I look forward to working on the questions raised in all my posts, and indeed in those of my colleagues, in my new capacity as Deputy Director of (and Senior Fellow with) the Proliferation Prevention Program at CSIS.

Having been the beneficiary of many patient and knowledgable folks over the years, I view the term “expert” as a sobriquet, finding more merit in the appellation “student.”  I will try not to take myself too seriously and look forward to new lessons.

I have enjoyed Jeffrey’s invitation to blog and am grateful.  Having now blogged, I am also on Twitter (@ThomasCSIS).  Twitter could be an experience, too.
