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.

The U.S. Intelligence Community Stands United but Where is the President

It was a shockingly united group.  The Heads of National Intelligence, NSA, Homeland Security, and others all lined up to talk about the Russians and one fundamental point was clear,  the Russians did it.  They tried to hijack the 2016 U.S. elections. Worse, they are continuing to try and hijack the 2018 elections too.  Of course there is one problem, where is the President.

The President, on the other hand, has also been equally clear.  As the Mueller investigation chugs on trying to determine who may have been involved, the President calls it a "hoax" and a "witch hunt." Now, do my a huge favor and reconcile that same united front of intelligence officials and the President himself.  

He people have argued that what he means is that his collusion and conspiratorial support is the hoax, and the witch hunt.  However, the President has had many many many opportunities to clarify that and yet he doubles down again and again. 

I'll appear on I24 International News to discuss.

Trump Believes Putin Over U.S. Intelligence

It was an extraordinary news conference like none I have ever seen. President Trump, meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki and rejecting the entire U.S. intelligence community, decided he believed Putin over the entire U.S. Intelligence community and and countless experts in the know. The real problem is that his rejection undercuts the entire U.S. Intelligence community and will certainly impact their ability to do their jobs.

I have never ever been more disgusted watching a sitting President. The problem is that the U.S. has approached international policy the same way since World War 2 and that includes Reagan, Ike, Nixon, Bush, Bush 2, Clinton, Obama, etc etc. And yet, now, Trump is jettisoning all of it and ignoring objective facts and U.S. policy.  Why?  It is nothing short of breathtaking.

I will appear on I24 International News on July 16th to discuss.

[I24 International News] June 19th: CIA Officer Indicted. Why do they do it?

I appear on I24 International News on June 19th.  Former CIA Officer Joshua Schulte was indicted today for allegedly providing critical cyber intelligence to Wikileaks. The question for some is why. I appear on Israeli TV to discuss a series of spying cases by Israeli citizens and this latest case involving an American.

People are driving by all sorts of reasons to betray their country. Sometimes, it is ideology. They believe that their own government isn't living up to its own standards. Sometimes, it is about letting the public know. Sometimes, its about money, or power and a feeling of importance and significance.  There are many other reasons as well.  

This will be a fun conversation but perspective is everything.  Just like one man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter, one man's traitor is another man's hero.  Wacky stuff.

[I24 International News] April 30th: Netanyahu had an Audience of One, Trump.

I appear on I24 International News on April 30th. Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu just went on the offensive regarding the Iranians and the Nuclear Deal signed by the U.S., the Brits, French, Russians and Chinese. Netanyahu just claimed that he had a ton of new evidence that proved the Iranians were lying and that President Trump shouldn't renew the Nuclear Deal.  Of course, this has been Bibi's argument all along so there is no real shock there.

This is going to be a fun and complex conversation.  There are a lot of moving parts and there is a lot of debate going on in Israel about this issue too.
