As a longtime ‘unsuscribed’ person from all mails at Foreign Policy Magazine, not only the ‘Security Brief’ newsletter, it was interesting to me to receive an “internal test’ of the ‘Security Brief’ FP mail. What are the possibilities? 1) It was a straightforward snafu of the Foreign Policy web propaganda outlet. 2) Foreign Policy is losing readers and they ‘faked’ an erroneous mail to try and draw former subscribers back.
