A Unique Group of Experts You Can Trust: Meet The Team
Our expertise is what sets us apart and makes us an authority in the realm of national security issues that you can trust.
19FortyFive’s editorial team comprises a talented and authoritative mix of foreign policy and national security experts, former policymakers, defense experts, seasoned journalists, economists, business experts, and much more.
And most important of all: we welcome a broad mix of thinkers to our mix. We favor no idea, no political ideology. Conservatives, progressives, and everything in-between are most welcomed on our digital pages.
Transparency Statement: To demonstrate our commitment to transparency, we are proud to share that 19FortyFive is entirely funded by online ads and has no other funding source whatsoever. Currently, we do not accept or solicit any funding from foreign governments or individuals.
Check out below our current roster of talent and expertise that makes 19FortyFive the unique publication that it is.
