The usual disclaimers apply. This is not a complete list (it's not even my complete list) and many informative accounts are not listed here. And of course I am not endorsing every tweet by every account here. However, these accounts will help keep you current and, in some cases, present you with interesting/challenging analysis. You will likely see many of them retweeted (sometimes frequently) by me @BlogsofWar as I continue to track this story closely.
