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.

[Russian TV Moscow] March 26th: Jack Talks U.S. Attack in Mosul

I appear on Russian TV Moscow on March 26th at 6 p.m. e.s.t.  On March 17th, the Americans conducted airstrikes on Mosul in support of Iraq ground operations.  Unfortunately, it was subsequetly learned that more than a hundred civilians, maybe two hundred or more, may have been killed.  The Iraqis are claiming it was ISIS but the investigaiton continues.  Regardless, I appear to talk about civilian casualties in warzones.  I saw this in Iraq and Afghanistan as well as in other parts of the world during wars.  Civilians always pay the heaviest price.

This is going to be a tough but interesting conversation.  


[Russian TV International] August 25th: Jack Talks Terrorist Attacks on American University in Kabul

I appear on Russian Television International on August 25th to discuss the recent attack on the American University in Kabul.  This school was a special project pushed by Laura Bush and the only liberal arts college in Afghanistan.  Reports have confirmed small arms fiire and bombings.  Apparently, the number of dead is growing.  I will discuss Afghanistan's tortured history.

Hope you can listen.


[Russian TV International] July 24th: Jack Talks Terrorism and Bavaria Attack.

Interview starts at 54:00.  This interview is one of the longest and most thorough interviews I have done in some time.  It lasts for almost 20 minutes and we cover a lot of ground.  We talk, terrorism, strategy, shfting political movements in Europe and how it is playing in the states including during the presidential elections.  


[The Ed Schultz Show] July 14th: Jack Talks Bastille Day Attack


[The Ed Schultz Show] July 14th: Jack Talks Attack in Nice, France.

I appear on The Ed Schultz Show on Thursday, July 14th at 8 pm. e.s.t.  Reports are still very vague but more than 70 people are reported dead in Nice after one man drove a truck onto a sidewalking killing people by the dozens and then allegedly stepping from that truck and shooting into the crowd.  At this point, it is difficult to determine if this is an ISIL inspired attack but the nature of a low tech attack on an extremely soft target raises a lot of question. First and foremost, is it even possible to stop such an attack? 

Hope you can watch.

[Russian TV International] Saturday, June 4th: Jack Talks Sorting Out the Good Guys from the Bad in Syria

What happens when it is hard to tell the good guys from the bad and everybody wants to be the leader? Think Syria. Al Qaida continues to operate and so does ISIL and the Iranians want to fight but so does the Damascus regime and the Russians and the Americans and the Brits and the French. And they all have different agendas. Get the picture? I'm on Russian TV out of Moscow soon to discuss.

[Russian Television Appearance] September 25th: Jack Talks Detainee Relase from Gitmo

Always interesting to appear on Russian TV to discuss the release of the last remaining British detainee held at Gitmo. He was cleared to be released in 2007 but for primarily political reasons, he's only being released now. Gitmo continues to be one of the best recruiting tools for the likes of ISIS, al Shabaab, and even Boko Haram. You'd think the US would learn something eventually. . . .
