Defense, Foreign relations & Intelligence

America's Role in the World

Sagamore was co-founded by Dan Coats in 2004 as he was wrapping up his tenure as US Ambassador to Germany. Mr. Coats also served as Director of National Intelligence and served on the US House and Senate committees addressing matters of defense, intelligence, and foreign relations. See featured content below to learn more about his service, senior fellow Alan Dowd’s ideas about America’s role in the world, and Indiana’s contributions to national security.

As a think tank, ideas are our business. Sagamore built on this foundation by forming an expert network of fellows providing independent and innovative research and analysis to public and private sector leaders.
