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.

[Voice of America Intl] August 15th: Jack Talks Mueller Investigation 

I appear on Voice of America International Edition on August 15th.  Well, Bob Mueller's investigation just keeps on rolling.  It is slow, it is methodical and it is persistent. Of course, some want this to go away right now.  Others want answers right now.  However, Bob Mueller is about dotting every I and crossing every T.  The investigation will not be going away anytime soon. And for those calling this "fake news", including Mr. Trump, there is a whole lot of meat on those bones and Mr. Trump's behavior isn't particular helping his case.

This is giong to be an interesting conversaton as always.  Hope you can catch it.

[I24 International News] August 11th: Jack Talks North Korea and Unnecessary Tensions 

I appear on I24 International News on August 11th.  Its true that Kim Jong-Un's behavior is creating tensions that can be felt from the Korean peninsula to China, Japan and the United States. We also know that he has been rattling the cage since he took power from his father, just like his father did, and just like his grandfather did. The only real difference at this very moment is the occupant of the White House. This isn't to say that this isn't dangerous and that technology is making it worse. Rather, Mr. Trump has turned this into a pissing contest. The problem, if I continue this analogy, is that if somebody blinks, everybody gets wet.  Yeah, sorry about that.

This is going to be a tough converation and we will tlk about some of the possible ramifications and what happens if this goes very very wrong. Hope you can watch.

[KOA Denver] August 9th: Jack Talks Growing U.S./North Korean Tensions

I appear o KOA Radio Denver on August 9th: Tensions are spinning widely out of control between the North Koreans and Donald Trump.  I say Donald Trump rather than the Americans very specifically because it is Dona;d Trump who is exacerbating the tensions. Even his Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has tried to calm things down and tried to get the North Koreans and the rest of the world to ignore his boss.  It is quite extrardinary on its face.

The problem with the inconsistencies in American foreign policy is that nobody really knows where the Americans stand.  And with growing tensions alongside the Supreme Leader of North Korea hovering over the button, a huge miscalculation could result in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people.  

Mr. Trump needs to understand that this is not a rally for the faithful in some red state.  If he screws this up, millions could die and it might rightfully be placed in his lap.  I would hope that this would give him pause but I highly doubt it.  

This should be an edgy conversation.

[AM 950 Minneapolis] August 8th: Jack Talks Trump/North Korea Egonomics

I appear on AM 950 with Mike McIntee on August 8th. For some reason, I can't help but think back to my days on the playground when two kids would start trying to act tough, yell at each other, and bump chests until one of them told the other one that "my father could beat up your father."  Children, right?  Well, what happens if they have nuclear weapons?  Of course, Kim Jung-Un and Donald Trump are not children but there are aspects of this story that make me wonder.

This is a potentially horrific story with worldwide ramifications.  Hope you can listen.

[MSNBC] August 6th: Jack Talks Latest on Trump/Russia Connection

I appear on MSNBC on August 6th. This seems to be the gift that keeps on giving, or the nightmare that keeps on scaring, depending upon how one wants to see it.  Bob Mueller has just impaneled a Grand Jury on Washington DC to look at the Russia/Trump connection.  Its important because there was already a Grand Jury that had been impaneled to look at disgraced National Security Advisor Mike Flynn and to start something new seems to indicate that there is something more to look at.  

The advantage of a Grand Jury is that you can subpoena records and interrogate under oath and ultimately, bring down indictments.  This is potentially critical to the ongoing investigation.  Further, Mueller continues to bring in more very experienced and very capable prosecutors which also seems to say that this things aint nowhere near  done.

This should be an interesting conversation.

[Voice of America Intl] August 3rd: Jack Talks Trump/Russia Grand Jury

I appear on Voice of America International Edition on August 3rd. Special Counsel Robert Mueller has impaneled a Grand Jury in Washington DC to take a closer look at any possible collusion between Mr. Trump and/or his associates and the Russians. It is a fascinating development because it shows that the investigation isn't fading away but is rather heating up.

In addition, Mueller continues to add to an already impressive list of attorneys that are investigating the case. That fact that he is continuing to add attorneys also supports the contention that the investigation is not winding down but speeding up.   

To add to the drama, bi-partisan bills have been introduced in both the House and the Senate to help insulate and protect Mueller from manipulation by the President. Its extraordinary that a bipartisan group see this an an issue.  

This is going to be an interesting conversation.

[Russian TV Moscow] August 1st: Jack Talks Pentagon Report on Afghan Military Sex Abuse

I appear on Russian TV Moscow on August 1st. I recognize that the Russians have an agenda and I also recognize that Russian media is driven from the Kremlin. I know that the Kremlin likes to report on things that make the U.S. look bad. Again, all of that is not shocking. That being said, the real question is whether what they are reporting is true and whether or not the U.S. is also reporting it. As a result, I am willing to comment on certain things.

The U.S. government's Afghanistan watchdog, the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction's latest quarterly report, has asked the Pentagon to declassify a report about alleged sexual abuse of children by members of the Afghan security forces. I agree. This needs to come out and needs to be addressed. I recognize that this is embarrassing the U.S. government and for the Pentagon who continues to work closely with the Afghan military. However, to ignore it and act like it doesn't exist makes the U.S. complicit and that is simply unacceptable. 

The U.S. has to stand up for human rights and fight abuse where they can. There is no excuse or way to turn away and act like it doesn't exist when its own watchdog organization says there is a problem.  

This is going to be an interesrting conversation and an important one.
