Edit note

I reverted the edit of user "PR Newman" of the [Peter R. Neumann]] page. The entry, dated Aug 1 2007 on Dr Peter Neumann lists him as still being Director of the Centre for Defence Studies --Bob Burton 20:13, 3 December 2007 (EST)

I checked the two various websites and found that it is unclear where if Neumann holds two positions or one, so I have used references for both. Also the comments previously looked like a promo for him, I've tweaked that.

Relocate sentence

I removed the following sentence as I'm not sure that it is a fair comment - a "mixed professional background" is common so I can't see that it is necessarily the basis to discount an area that some takes an interest in as being "questionable". --Bob Burton 06:29, 16 December 2007 (EST)

"Because of his mixed professional background, Neumann's expertise in al-Qaeda terrorism appears unclear and questionable."

Hi - I modified the sentence. I do think it is relevant that someone who write a bio on Al Gore,looked at the IRA and then suddenly becomes an expert on al-Qaeda overnight !! There is no refrence anywhere what expertise Neumann has on international terrorism. He appears to have simply joined the bandwagon where it became niche.
