Marc Ambinder is joining The Atlantic’s national security site — Defense One — as a senior contributor. Ambinder will retain his roles as editor-at-large of The Week and contributing editor to GQ and The Atlantic.

“Few people have such a clear understanding — and the sources to back it up — of U.S. intel, secrecy, and national security issues,” said Kevin Baron, executive editor of Defense One, in a statement. “The last decade saw U.S. intelligence and the military joined at the hip in secrecy, with consequences echoing from the battlefield to the Constitution for years to come. Expect Marc to shed light on what comes next.”

Defense One is expected to launch sometime this summer.
