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.

[CNN Appearance] Campbell Brown, Tues. Feb 23rd: Talk on Terrorism

I appear on CNN's Campbell Brown on Tuesday, February 23rd at 8 p.m. e.t.  With the recent admissions by Aziz, some are amazingly continuing to question the logic of civilian trials.  My response is that these civilian trials are working exactly as planned.  They are working perfectly.

Should be a lot of fun.

[Commentary] Not a Restful Night in Haiti

It was my first night in Haiti and I was in bed and staring at the ceiling.  The hotel owner where I was staying, the Villa Creole, had already condemned large portions of the hotel and it wasn't hard to figure out why.  After the earthquake, big sections of it had already collapsed and what remained had large cracks in the floors, walls, and ceiling.  It still looked strangely beautiful - in parts. They still watered the plants and kept the pool clean. Really strange . . . They even boarded up certain areas just to cover the destruction so it wasn't so obvious although you couldn't miss it everywhere.

In my head, I kept thinking about the 7.3 earthquake and all of the aftershocks as I tried to gauge the weight of the ceiling and the distance from my bed to the door and out into the street.  I then made sure that my shoes, my pants, my passport and my money were close by.  Of course that probably wouldn't help as I was on the third floor and then building was on the side of a mountain.  Across the ravine, I could see how the other building across from me had already collapsed.

I certainly have nobody else to blame for coming to this place.  It was my idea and I had worked hard to be in this place.  So  I tried to reconcile what I was doing and tried to relax.  I would then look at the ceiling again.  And at the cracks.  And then for my passport.

The Only Thing Standing is the Crucified. Port au Prince, Haiti, 2010.

Thousands of churches in Haiti were destroyed.  This one, a Catholic Church located in Port au Prince, Haiti, was completely demolished by the earthquake except for Jesus out in front.  The only thing standing is the crucified.
