Obama’s Foreign Policy Voice Is Called Up

A fascinating item from today’s National Journal, presented below with the hopeful acquiescence of the fine NJ editorial team. The author is Marisa Katz.

Barack Obama is losing his top foreign-policy adviser to active military duty. Mark Lippert, who has helped to write every major Obama foreign-policy speech and is known as “an expert at nailing down details,” has been called up by the Naval Reserve. He’s in training now but says his orders don’t specify where or how long he’ll deploy. This will be the first tour for the lieutenant junior grade, who signed up for the Reserve about three years ago.
