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 and trial skills teacher aroud 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.

Khashoggi's Death is Going to Cost the Saudis

On October 2nd, Washington Post Journalist Jamal Khashoggi walked into a Saudi Consulate in Istanbul.  This was the last time he was ever seen alive.  Since then, the Saudis have come up with a whole list of stories, each less likely to be true the last one.  The problem is that Turkish President Erdogan, no stranger to extremism and dictatorial abuse himself, seems to have substantial information regarding what happened and he is not letting go.

President Trump seems to be providing cover for the Saudis and talking about rogue elements who did this without authorizations.  This is quite astounding and says a lot.  The Americans provide enormous support, weapons, training for the Saudis and the Saudis seem to be a lynch pin for the American Administration.

So what comes next? I will appear on RT Arabic to discuss.  This program is translated live into Arabic and airs throughout the Middle East.  Futher, I will be on with a Saudi official and a Turkish official.  This is expected to be feisty.
