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.

[RT Washington] October 23rd: Jack Talks More Aggressive U.S. Ops Worldwide

I appear on RT America with Ed Schultz on October 23rd. Reports are coming out out CIA Paramilitary Ops ramping up in Afghanistan.  According the Director Pompeo, the Agency needs to be more aggressive and get more into the field. This highlights a potential changing role from more of the political one to a more military-esque one.  Combine this with the revelations of the recent deaths of four Green Beret soldiers in Niger who were working on the fringes and it highlights the willingness for the U.S. to reach further and further out.

It will be an interestin story to watch and discuss.  Hope you can watch.

[RT America] August 24th: Jack Talks Trump and Pakistan

I appear on RT America on August 24th to talk Pakistan. Why Pakistan you ask?  Simply, Mr. Trump recently seemed to place the blame on the U.S.'s inability to deal with Afghanistan in the lap of Pakistan and Pakistan is pushing back. Now, let's be clear, there are no simple answers and Pakistan absolutely bears some responsilibity for what is going on in Afghanistan and even for America's failure. However, even Pakistan couldn't take Afghanistan if it wanted to.  In fact, nobody has ever been able to take the country for many different reasons.  One of the first is that it is a country in name only.  Secondly, the people of Afghanistan have never seen themselves as such.  In addition, the current regime "in control", and I use that term very loosely, is incompetent and corrupt.  Frankly, the list goes on and on and on.

This should be an interesting conversation and I truly relish the opportunity.  Hope you can catch it.

[Russian TV Moscow] July 21st: Jack Talks U.S. Losing in Afghanistan

I appear on Russia TV Moscow on July 21st. The U.S. is losing the war in Afghanistan.  Its objetively true.  In fact, the Taliban now controls more terrirtory in the country than anytime since 9/11.  Contemplate that for a second.

The U.S. acknowledged today that they inadvertantly bombed Afghani soldiers and civilians in Helmund province.  In fact, record numbers of Afghani civilians have have been hit by American and Afghani Airforce airstrikes. What doesn't help is that the numbers of U.S. and Ag=fghani sorties has increased to more than 1500 in 2016 and already more than 1000 this year.  As a result, statistically, the chance for inadvertant bombings simply increases.  However, everytime this happens, it makes it even harder for the Americans to be successful.  And again, they aren't winning. 

This should be an interesting conversation.  Further, considering

[Russian TV with Ed Schultz] June 13th: Jack Talks Trump's Response

I appear on Russian TV with Ed Schultz on June 13th.  Its interesting. I regularly ask myself about whether it is appropriate to even appear on Russian TV considering what the Russians did in the last election.  My decision to occasionally do it is based upon this belief: if I say what I truly believe to be true, even if it is delivered by the Russians, I'm fine with that. I'm not here to blindly support the American point of view just because it is American or this Administration's point of view just because it currently speaks for the Americans.  It is far more nuanced than that. 

Today, I think one of the issues we are going to discuss President Trump and what he should do now. Strangely, and I do believe this to be true, Trump has fundamentally misjudged this crisis.  He honestly thought that if he kept calling the Russian op fake news, people would buy it.  People didn't and the Russians really did this. Secondly, he has been reactive when he needs to be proactive.  

Coming from an Intelligence background as well as a legal background and even a media background, I think this may be right up my alley today.

This is going to be fun and interesting.
