Phil Carter's Status Update

As you may have guessed from this blog's hibernation over the past few months, I have taken an indefinite leave of absence from writing to pursue other professional projects.

I have greatly enjoyed the opportunity to blog on national security for The Washington Post, and to engage in discussions with you -- my readers -- over the six years that I have been writing Intel Dump. Thank you all for your readership and support.

I don't blame Phil, who, as he says, has been busy. I'd like to know why the other bloggers who this place had been entrusted to suddenly stopped posting en masse after Sept. '08, however. I'd like to give them the benefit of the doubt and assume it was something like the passwords got changed accidentally and everybody but Phil got locked out, but some notification from the Post would have been a nice courtesy to the readers.

Dear Phil:

May you in a time of your choosing be able to stand beside the Stockdale Memorial at the Naval Academy and say that you have assumed on behalf of a man's sacrifice a heritage that has been until recently lost.

Another good choice by the President.
