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 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 and its people as much as he himself is captivated.

[RT America] August 24th: Jack Talks Trump and Pakistan

I appear on RT America on August 24th to talk Pakistan. Why Pakistan you ask?  Simply, Mr. Trump recently seemed to place the blame on the U.S.'s inability to deal with Afghanistan in the lap of Pakistan and Pakistan is pushing back. Now, let's be clear, there are no simple answers and Pakistan absolutely bears some responsilibity for what is going on in Afghanistan and even for America's failure. However, even Pakistan couldn't take Afghanistan if it wanted to.  In fact, nobody has ever been able to take the country for many different reasons.  One of the first is that it is a country in name only.  Secondly, the people of Afghanistan have never seen themselves as such.  In addition, the current regime "in control", and I use that term very loosely, is incompetent and corrupt.  Frankly, the list goes on and on and on.

This should be an interesting conversation and I truly relish the opportunity.  Hope you can catch it.
