About Jack

Jack is really a storyteller and explorer and everything else rolls out from there. As a writer, its what he does.  As a trial lawyer, its his most important tool.  As a former CIA officer, the only way to truly motivate people is to connect and to tell them a story that they can feel viscerally.  As a media analyst, what better way to make a point.  In the end, he tries to captivate his audience about the world as much as he himself is captivated.

[Russian Television International, July 22nd: Jack Talks Possible Terrorism and Munich Attack

I appear on Russian TV International on Friday, July 22nd.  Another attack. This time, allegedly three individuals were involved in an attack on a shopping mall in Munich, Germany.  While information is coming in, it is reported that at least 6 are dead.  This comes on the heals of another attack in Germany by a young man from Afganistan who claimed to be motivated by ISIL.

I will apear and talk about this continuing paradigm shift and what this will mean as well as the possible political ramifications coming out of Europe as a result.  Hope you can watch.

[Editorial] July 16th: The West Doesn't Really Care About Democracy or Freedom - They Want Stability  

Interesting conversation with Brian Williams. I couldn't have disagreed more with the former Turkish Prime Minister who was on right before me. The West said they were standing up for democracy. They don't really care about democracy nor freedom in the Middle East. They desperately want stability above all things. Think . . . Turkey, Egypt, Israel, Iraq, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Iran. The list goes on and on and on. To say the least, the West has a troubled history in the region and that behavior continues.  Gotta give us credit for one thing . . . we are consistent.

[The Ed Schultz Show] July 14th: Jack Talks Attack in Nice, France.

I appear on The Ed Schultz Show on Thursday, July 14th at 8 pm. e.s.t.  Reports are still very vague but more than 70 people are reported dead in Nice after one man drove a truck onto a sidewalking killing people by the dozens and then allegedly stepping from that truck and shooting into the crowd.  At this point, it is difficult to determine if this is an ISIL inspired attack but the nature of a low tech attack on an extremely soft target raises a lot of question. First and foremost, is it even possible to stop such an attack? 

Hope you can watch.
