Josh Rogin attempts to profile the foreign policy advisors to four of the Republican presidential candidates. He really only succeeds with Mitt Romney and Tim Pawlenty; the Michele Bachmann campaign didn’t respond to requests for information, and the outside advisors who Jon Huntsman has consulted haven’t committed to his campaign. Still, Rogin’s report is worth reading, even if the “who are the advisors” frame seems to fall apart midway through the piece; it gives a good sense of where the candidates are positioning themselves, and maybe even a sense of what they actually believe.
