ASK QUESTIONS LATER is the newsletter of Dan Perry, who led the Associated Press coverage of Israel and the Middle East — from Pakistan through north Africa — for much of the 2010s. Before that led Europe and Africa for the agency, as well as the Caribbean. He served as the Foreign Press Association chairman in Jerusalem during the Second Intifada. His concerns range from supporting sanity and good humor around the world to defending the liberal order now beset from many sides. Subscribe to this newsletter and never miss an update.
