Military Writers Guild interviews Brent Scowcroft Center Associate Director Alex Ward on the routines that contribute to his writing and research:
I have been contemplating the source of terrorism lately. My research kept returning to the same place of origin. As the echo chamber of my cranium kept returning the same conclusion, I decided to share my findings. At the invitation of Alex Ward, I spent a short afternoon at the Atlantic Council’s Brent Scowcroft Center on International Security.
A gracious host, Alex rushed a colleague and I from the Council’s lobby into a glass room reminiscent of Dr. Strangelove’s War Room. Certain of the impact of my conclusions this would be the place where such insights should be shared. Humanity hung in the balance.
