Recently I came across the work of Mr. Micah Zenko a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). Mr. Zenko has extensive background of working with  Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government, Brookings Institution Washington, DC, Congressional Research Service, and State Department’s Office of Policy Planning.
