Here at FP, we spent most of the week surrounded by cardboard and bubble wrap as we prepared to move into our swank new headquarters. But between sorting ancient office supplies and torturing our amazingly good-natured research assistants, we managed to have a great week for Web content.
The latest controverisal appointment: The Cable's Laura Rozen originally broke the story of Chas Freeman's appointment to head the National Intelligence Council and was all over the controversy about his views and affiliations. Passport had more details and David Rothkopf stood up for the controversial pick.
A little advice: Brazil's former president, Fernando Henrique Cardoso, told FP why it's time to end the war on drugs; Steve Walt imagined what advice Winston Churchill might have for Obama; and Dan Drezner told the WTO it should really consider getting some nuclear weapons.
