Today we have a new contributor stepping "into the Shadows," as Paul Miller joins the hale ranks of Shadow Government contributors. For his day job, Paul is an assistant professor of international security studies at the National Defense University. Prior to stepping behind a lectern, he served as director for Afghanistan on the National Security Council staff from September 2007 to September 2009. Before working as a policymaker, he previously served as a political analyst in the U.S. intelligence community, specializing in South Asia. He also serves as an officer in the U.S. Army Reserve and was deployed to Afghanistan in 2002.

In short, Paul brings a wealth of policy, scholarly, and field experience, and we are fortunate to have him aboard.
