Bold. Innovative. Bipartisan.
The Center for a New American Security (CNAS) is an independent, bipartisan, nonprofit organization that develops strong, pragmatic, and principled national security and defense policies. CNAS engages policymakers, experts, and the public with innovative, fact-based research, ideas, and analysis to shape and elevate the national security debate. A key part of our mission is to inform and prepare the national security leaders of today and tomorrow.
The Clinton faction within the party seems to be less willing to engage in happy talk, or at least that is the inference I draw from the recent announcement that the Center for New American Security’s (CNAS) annual conference topic will be “A World in Turmoil: Charting America’s Course.” When CNAS was founded, it was widely considered to be the “Clinton national security team in waiting,” but when Obama overtook Clinton, it proved to be the “Democratic national security team in waiting.” Most of the senior players in CNAS have served in the Obama administration in some capacity in the past six years and many are expected to serve in any new Clinton administration as well. (Full disclosure: I have published several pieces through CNAS and, at one time, was on their Board of Advisors. I am told I still am, though the website has forgotten me — temporarily, I hope!) CNAS is probably as good a window into the thinking of the Clinton national security team as we have.
HRC Clintons pick for Defense secretary Michele Flournoy
The far and away favorite here is Michèle Flournoy, who was talked about for the job the most recent time Obama had an opening and would be the first woman in the position. She led defense transition planning for Obama, was then his undersecretary of defense for policy and has since started the Center for a New American Security.
A disruptive innovation is an innovation that creates a new market and value network and eventually disrupts an existing market and value network, displacing established market leading firms, products and alliances. The term was defined and phenomenon analyzed by Clayton M. Christensen beginning in 1995.
In the early 2000s, "signiﬁcant societal impact" has also been used as an aspect of disruptive innovation. Not all innovations are disruptive, even if they are revolutionary. For example, the first automobiles in the late 19th century were not a disruptive innovation, because early automobiles were expensive luxury items that did not disrupt the market for horse-drawn vehicles. The market for transportation essentially remained intact until the debut of the lower-priced Ford Model T in 1908. The mass-produced automobile was a disruptive innovation, because it changed the transportation market, whereas the first thirty years of automobiles did not.
Disruptive innovations tend to be produced by outsiders and entrepreneurs, rather than existing market-leading companies. The business environment of market leaders does not allow them to pursue disruptive innovations when they first arise, because they are not profitable enough at first and because their development can take scarce resources away from sustaining innovations (which are needed to compete against current competition). A disruptive process can take longer to develop than by the conventional approach and the risk associated to it is higher than the other more incremental or evolutionary forms of innovations, but once it is deployed in the market, it achieves a much faster penetration and higher degree of impact on the established markets.

There is a very good map of connections here Antiwar between Center for New American Security, and Bill Clintons Project for New American Century.
Is this the same Charles Deyo?
ETA: I think if this is the same Justin, appears he worked at the State Dept?

Interesting set of coincidences, if they are coincidence.
Looking at the data about that server, and the pings it
could easily be a set up, strange indeed.

I'm not sure how much of this I can post out in the open thread as I think we are dealing with a 'private person' issue here.
That being said, there is a website that was had a thread made about it here a while back which was shown to contain a good deal of personal information when members here started looking themselves up there.
Anyway, I went to this website and looked up Mr. Deyo and found 3 listings there, one of which is deceased. Between the other two, I looked closer and think I have found our Mr. Deyo.
Not only that, but there are some intriguing irregularities, such as having a couple of different names 'associated' with the original. Both of which have the 'alias' feel to them to me when I look at them closer on the above-mentioned site. They both have the same 'current & former addresses' as well as the same 'possible relatives,' and 'possible associates.'
One of the 'associated names' has a different last name, and the other is a feminine version of his name, hence the 'alias' feel I mentioned.
I've archived the pages at archive.is but don't want to link them out in the open thread due to the previously-mentioned potential privacy issue, but if a member wants to pm me, I will provide the links in a pm with the caveat that they not be posted to the thread here.
I will say that Charles Deyo is not listed as one of Justin Deyo's, 'possible relatives,' which is what I was looking for in the first place, but the rest of this felt odd enough that I figured ATS would want to hear of it.
