Olympic Intelligence Gathering

An investigative article I have been working on was just published in the Dominion. The main themes are looking at the US side of Olympic security, the role of Multinational corporations in intelligence gathering, the emergence of Fusion Centers in the US and the in roads fusion centers are making in Canada.You can find a link to to the story here.

I have been doing investigative research for many years now, but I am only now learning how to apply that to journalism. One of the dilemmas I faced in writing this article was how to tell a very complicated story in 1200 words. I think in retrospect it might have made more sense to do a series of articles and fully hash out each idea.
