About Jeff Stein
SpyTalk columnist Jeff Stein is a longtime investigative reporter specializing in U.S. intelligence, defense and foreign policy issues. An Army Intelligence case officer in Vietnam, Stein has authored three highly regarded books and has been a frequent contributor to periodicals ranging from Esquire,Vanity Fair, GQ and Playboy to The New Republic, The Nation and The Christian Science Monitor. He also appears frequently on television and radio as an analyst on national security issues. In the 1980s, he was deputy foreign editor at UPI.
TIME called his 1992 book, "A Murder in Wartime," "The best military morality tale since 'The Caine Mutiny' ... an exhaustively researched and heavily documented history of the Green Beret murder case." In 2000 Gen. William E. Odom, a former chief of the National Security Agency, writing in The Washington Post, called "Saddam's Bombmaker" (written with Khidhir Hamza), "Not only stranger but frequently bloodier than fiction. The book should attract a wide range of readers, from foreign policy and security specialists to bored airplane passengers looking for a thriller."
Until late 2009 Stein worked at Congressional Quarterly, where he launched the online CQ/Homeland Security daily, served as National Security editor and created SpyTalk.
