My latest articles for the Beast about the UN, Iran, and Obama; and my last column for Newsweek

Beginning next week, Newsweek will be run by its new owners at International Business Times. I am sure that under the leadership of editor James Impoco they will turn out a brilliant magazine on the Web and on news stands in many languages in many parts of the world.

Over the last two years, I have had a great time working for both Newsweek and The Daily Beast. With its terrific mix of serious news, sharp analysis and wicked fun, the Beast is not only a vibrant publication to read, it's a very exciting place to write and report. Tina Brown may be moving on, but she did a wonderful job creating the site and infusing it with her energetic, ever-inquisitive spirit. John Avlon and Deidre Depke, who've taken the reins, are solid pros with their own brilliance. So the Beast is where I'll stay.

I'll continue to live and work in Paris and to cover a large swathe of the globe. I hope you will continue to follow me on our site -- -- and on social media. I will also continue to send out links to my stories, my television appearances and other publications on my personal mailing list.
