About Jack

Jack is really a storyteller, 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 as much as he himself is captivated.

[KOA Denver] May 23rd: Jack Talks the Manchester Bombing

I appear on KOA Denver to discuss the recent bombing in Manchester, England. This is a particualrly difficult case as this bombing targeted children. Unfortunately, this case seems to display some of the telltale signs of ISIS.  With more than a dozen dead and more than 50 injured, the entire world is watching this case.  The facts are emerging slowly but people have lots of questions  Again, unfortauntely, at this point there are few answers. However, I will discuss the importance of cooperation between intelligence organizations to address this issue. 

Hope you can listen. 


[KOA Denver] May 10th: Jack Talks Trump's Decision to Fire FBI Director

I appear on KOA Denver with my old friend Steffen Tubbs.  Richard Nixon fired Special Prosecutor Archibald Cox in 1973 as Cox was looking into the Watergate scandal. This story of President Trump firing Jim Comey feels a little like that. The problem is the major investigation into the Russia/Trump connection was being driven by the FBI.  This raises enormous questions and we are starting to hear voices from both sides of the aisle including Senator Richard Burr, Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee potentially calling for a special prosecutor to step in.  Oh, and Burr's a Republican. This story is actually growing, not shrinking. This may have been a very serious miscalculation on the part of President Trump  We will see.

Hope you can listen.  


[KOA Denver] April 7th: Jack Talks U.S. Airstrikes at Syrian Targets

I appear on KOA in Denver with my buddy Steffan Tubbs to discuss President Trump's decision to fire 59 tomahawk missiles at targets in Syria.  It is an extraordinary shift in American policy.  In fact, as recently as this week, the Secretary of State said we werent' focusing on the Assad regime.  Rather, we were targetting ISIS.  This eries of strikes promises to unend a whole series of efforts in the region. This promises to be a smart interview.

Hope you can listen if you are in the Denver area.


[KOA Denver] March 2nd: Jack Talks Russians and AG Sessions

I appear on KOA in Denver with my old friend Steffan Tubbs to discuss the latest developments in the investigation of Russian involvement with the Trump campaign.  AG Sessions was asked multiple times exactly what contacts he had and then denied having any whatsoever.  It was reveled today that in fact he met several times with the Russian Ambassador to the U.S.  This is tough to reconcile and Democrats and even a few GOPers are asking him to recuse huimself from running the investigaiton.  That may be the least of his worries.  

Hope you can catch it.



[KOA Appearance] Tuesday, September 22nd: Jack Talks ISIS and U.S. Airstrikes

I appeara on KOA in Denver, Colorado with my friend Steffan Tubbs on Tuesday, September 22nd.  The U.S. has been conducting airstrikes throughout Syria to take out Syria.  It is an incredibly complex operation and the difficulty will be to determine who our friends and enemies actually are.  We will see.  

This should be really interesting.


[KOA Appearance] Thursday, June 5th: Jack Talks the Bergdahl Exchange

I appear on KOA Radio in Denver Colorado with my old friend Steffan Tubbs on Thursday, June 5th.  Bowe Bergdahl was released this week after 5 years in captivity in Afghanistan.  Th Americans traded 5 Taliban fighters who have been held at Gitmo since 2002.  Steffan and I will discuss a recently released video as well as the back story behind this.

Hope you can watch.


[KOA Radio Appearance] Wednesday, June 30th: Talk on Law and Russian Spies

I appear on Denver, Colorado based KOA Radio on June 30th at 9 a.m. e.t. The fallout continues to spin regarding the 10 alleged Russian spies who have been scooped up by federal authorities.  Upon closer inspection, this truly feels like a blast from the past.  However, as a former CIA officer, I recall having conversations with other CIA colleagues about what foreign intelligence services would do after the fall of the Berlin Wall.  The shift has frequently turned economic and about international business.  I will join KOA to talk about what it means and the legal ramifications.  As a criminal defense attorney, I will talk about how to defend somebody charged with this.

Hope you can listen.


I'm Appearing on KOA Radio in Denver to Talk Terrorism Tomorrow.

I'm appearing on KOA Radio in Denver to talk about terrorism and about the arraignment of a terrorist suspect.  A very good friend of mine, Steffan Tubbs, hosts the morning show.  We originally met in Iraq years ago.

How seriously should we take this?  Where do we go next.

Hope you can listen.


Jack Appears on KOA Radio in Denver to Discuss Sotomayor.

Jack appears on KOA Radio in Denver with his buddy Steffan Tubbs to discuss the U.S Supreme Court confirmation hearing of Sonia Sotomayor.  With one day down, the proceedings will be dominated by Q & A between the Judge and the Senators.

Just as a side note, Steffan and I became friends on a trip to Iraq some years ago and actually learned that we were both born in the same small hospital in northern San Diego County.  Small world. . . .
