By: Firouzeh Afsharnia
A few years ago I was traveling through Africa and found my self in a rickety cab.

He was in a jovial mood and had just passed some sort of certification exam. “I passed! I passed!” He declared.

My latest is an out-of-the-box piece co-written with Andrea Bartoli (Director of the S-CAR at GMU) which asks:
"Imagine back in 2010 if instead of masked men with guns, trained for intense warfare at sea, boarding a ship in the dead of night, the IDF had dispatched an elite unit of conflict resolution specialists. Could the tragedy at sea been averted?" …
