Russ Wellen is the editor of Focal Points, the Foreign Policy in Focus blog.  In addition, he holds down the “Nukes and Other WMD” for the Faster Times and his posts and essays about nuclear weapons and disarmament also appear at Scholars & Rogues, Newshoggers, the Agonist, Dirty Hippies, and Huffington Post (currently under boycott).

He is independent of the government, an academic institution, or a disarmament group. Near as he can tell, he’s one of only a handful of bloggers on nuclear weapons and disarmament who are unaffiliated with an organization.
