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.

[WVLY Radio] February 1st: Nunes Memo Creates Open Conflict 

I appear on WVLY Radio with my buddy Howard Monroe on February 1st.  House Intelligence Committee Chairman has decided to released a classified memo that objective sources has been called incomplete, confusing, inaccurate and may actually disclose sources and methods. All of these terms come from the sitting FBI Director who was a Trump nominee and a life long Republican. In the bizarro world in which we livew, the Republicans seem to be under the belief that they should attack the U.s. Justice Department rather than determine whether or not it is true about whether President Trump or any of his people actually worked with and cooperating with the Russians.  

This is an extraordinary development. This should be a fun interview.

[Voice of America Intl. Edition] January 23rd: Mueller Turns to Trump for Answers

I appear on Voice of America International Edition with Lori Lundin on January 23rd. As the Mueller investigation continues to move forward, it appears that he his opening a new chapter and that new chapter is entitled Donald Trump. This is significant as the Mueller team has acquired enormous amounts of information so when they are asking the President questions, they already know the answers.

This is potentially an incredibly dangerous chapter for the President.  Its not ju8st about collusion with the Russians but also about obstruction and what that means.  The President has been all over the board and the potential could be incredibly ugly.

This promises to be a really interesting converation. Hope you can listen in.

We are going to talk about what that means and how that changes you.  This promises to be interesting, different . . . 

Hope you can catch this if you are in the Denver area.

Archive: This Photo Haunts Me to This Day

Archive: On joint patrol with US & Iraqi soldiers in Baghdad in 2006. It was a brutal time with constant small & sometimes not so small arms fire as well as the never-ending threat of IED's. I turned down a small street & saw these two little boys, brothers I think, peaking through a fence. 

They looked me in the face and saw ... what? I slowly pulled my SLR up to my face and grabbed the shot before the gunfire pulled me away, partially out of fear for myself but partially our of fear that my presence before these boys made their lives even more precarious than they already were. 

I should add that as I looked through the lens into their eyes, I saw two other sets of eyes, mine and my brothers. We are about that many months apart and I couldn’t help but make the comparison and I couldn’t help but think about how and why the Gods put us where they did and then subsequently placed these boys in this firestorm. It confused me, angered me and saddened me all at the same time. It still does. I'll never know if they survived. 

This photo has haunted me ever since.
