Below is a list of the top ten posts of 2008 on COMOPS Journal, by page views:
- Minerva on the Cheap?
- Did the Bad Guys Scuttle Their Own Forums?
- Obama Garb Photo Hits AQ Boards
- Candidates’ PD Positions Miss the Point
- Cracks in The Base
- Time to Stop Fooling Ourselves About Salafis
- Can Facebook Defeat Terrorism?
- New DSB Report on Strategic Communication
- al Qaeda’s Talking but Are Americans Listening?
- A Bad Year for Dr. Zawahiri
In compiling this list, I noticed that there were seveal posts from 2007 that got a lot of reads this year, including one that had more views than the top 2008 post.Â Obviously this means that we are often a year ahead of the curve, and/or that our posts are like fine wine and get better with age.Â In any case, here are the 2007 posts that were at or above the page views of #10 above:
- Radical Proposal or Same-Old-Same-Old (Note: Perhaps the Obama admin will appoint the commission I proposed)
- Analysis: Blogging Better at the State Department (Note: 2008 follow-up series here).
- Psyops Tech: Voices in Your Head
- How to Win Enemies and Disgust People
- The Muslim Brotherhood and ikhwanweb.com
We wish you a safe, prosperous, and happy New Year.
