With the Senate confirmation hearing of former Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-NE) beginning this morning, we’ve invited national security reporter Yochi Dreazen to liveblog the proceedings here in the Editors’ Blog.
Yochi was previously a national security reporter for National Journal and the Wall Street Journal and is a contributing editor at The Atlantic. He is currently working on a book titled “The Invisible Front: Love and Loss in the Era of Endless War,” on how one military family is grappling with post-combat mental health issues. It is scheduled to be published in early 2014 by Crown. Yochi has spent more than five years in-country in Iraq and Afganistan.
Please welcome Yochi. I think you’ll enjoy his insights.
