About Jack

Jack is really a storyteller, international explorer, and humanitarian and everything else rolls out from there. As a writer, its what he does. As a international human rights and criminal lawyer and trial skills teacher around the world, 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 and its people as much as he himself is captivated.

[WKBK Appearance] Monday, June 2nd: Jack Talks Terrorism and Bergdahl

I appear on WKBK out of Keene, NH with Dan Mitchell on Monday, June 2nd.  Bowe Bergdahl was just released from captivity in Afghanistan.  Of course, we traded five Taliban fighters for him.  If we don't negotiate with terrorists, is there a way to reconcile this?  I care a lot less about the politics behind it and why this party is right and this party is wrong.  I'm far more interested in the ramifications.

This is going to be fun!
