Sorting questions by national security risk driver

Here is a first-pass ordering of GJ Open questions, with an intent towards categorizing by “national security risk driver” to use for an automated “Situation Report” based on GJ Open forecasts.  I find myself leaning towards just geographic tags for the most part.   I give a link to the IFP and GJOpen categories assigned to each question.  For each concentration there is implicitly a US focus of concern against which the questions have some operational relevance.  For each subsection I give my guess, in red, of the (as generic as possible) national security risk driver (except for US section).  In writing a “Situation Report” I would then sort first by the generic risk driver and then by region and set of affected countries.
