Romney's Foreign Policy Team

We're all very familiar with Rudy Giuliani's cadre of neocon advisors. Now, Mitt Romney's rolling out his own team:

Despite being one of the most vocal “Washington must change” agents of the top-tier Republican presidential candidates, Romney's Intelligence Policy Advisory Group will be chaired by Michigan Rep. Pete Hoekstra, who chaired the House Intelligence Committee when Republicans controlled Congress and now serves as the party’s senior member.

The eight men on the Counterterrorism Policy Advisory Group will be led by Cofer Black, a former coordinator for counterterrorism in the State Department who previously spent 28 years in the CIA. The additional seven members have long resumes within the executive branch, with security companies in the private sector and in the diplomatic arena.

Since leaving his government job Cofer Black has been Vice Chairman of the private military firm Blackwater.
