Robert Kaplan is a fellow at the Center for a New American Security and the foreign correspondent for The Atlantic magazine.  If you don’t read the Atlantic you should. The Atlantic offers thoughtful and thorough articles about current events that provide more perspective than your typical media source. Robert Kaplan has been reporting for the Atlantic for over two decades and he has worked on assignment in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Asia, Latin America, and the United States. He has also written books on the Balkans, Asia and, most recently, on the American military in Iraq and Afghanistan.
