INTELWIRE shortlisted for Defence IQ blogging awardsJust a quick note of thanks to Defence IQ for picking INTELWIRE for its shortlist of nominees as best counterterrorism blog. The other nominees in this and related categories are among the cream of the crop in this field and Twitter friends such as Leah Farrall, Natalie Sambhi and N.R. Jenzen-Jones, and the teams at Registan, Ink Spots and Gunpowder and Lead, all excellent resources. Also listed was The Freedom Fighter Blog, which is a new one to me. With a field like this, it's not the usual formality to say it's an honor just to be nominated. It really is. Thanks!
Nobody can follow everybody, but there are some notable omissions on the list, led by Jihadology, Jihadica and Views from the Occident, and including Selected Wisdom, Zenpundit, Waq Al-Waq and the Long War Journal.
Check out J.M. Berger's new book, Jihad Joe: Americans Who Go to War in the Name of Islam, on sale everywhere.
Views expressed on INTELWIRE are those of the author alone.

"...smart, granular analysis..."ISIS: The State of Terror
"Jessica Stern and J.M. Berger's new book, "ISIS," should be required reading for every politician and policymaker... Their smart, granular analysis is a bracing antidote to both facile dismissals and wild exaggerations... a nuanced and readable account of the ideological and organizational origins of the group." -- Washington Post

"...a timely warning..."Jihad Joe: Americans Who Go to War in the Name of Islam:
"At a time when some politicians and pundits blur the line between Islam and terrorism, Berger, who knows this subject far better than the demagogues, sharply cautions against vilifying Muslim Americans. ... It is a timely warning from an expert who has not lost his perspective." -- New York Times
