Moving From Action to Administration With LTG Jerry Boykin

"You as a man of action. I mean, you're just a gregarious guy. You love big, you talk, you're there. You want to be an action. That's what about you the force to start with. When you started moving toward the more administrative roles, how did that for someone like you how did that make was that different? Was that almost a more difficult challenge? Oh, yeah. I mean, it always is, especially when you're sent from being on the front lines with the Delta force up to The Pentagon. You know, that's like being thrown off to San Francisco bridge or something. But you know what, what was good about that was, I. Actually was only only the staff therefore a little while, and I got sent over to the CIA. So I spent a couple of years at CIA running covert actions there to CIA. And so it kind of put me back in the fight, so to speak, and that was a great assignment. And I got to tell you, don't ever say anything bad about CIA around me, because they are, they have some of the finest professionals in the government. And then when I came back for my second tour at The Pentagon, I wound up going over to the Balkans running a task force there to capture war criminals, remember after the Dayton accords, there had been an agreement that all of the war and factions would turn in the people that were identified as war criminals, but they didn't do it. So I was running a task force out of Sarajevo that was capturing war criminals and that was that was a great assignment. I mean, I really enjoyed that. And then I left that job after about a year and came back to take over all the green berets, but I got to tell you, I just kept getting put back into those positions where I could feel like I was still part of the game.

Toby Harnden Shares a Story From on the Ground in Afghanistan

"You mentioned this story, the prison uprising, Mike spann, a former marine CIA paramilitary. For those who know nothing, give us the story of that incredible event and what that man did. Yeah. It is incredible. And so November 25th, 2001. Two CIA officers walk into this fort called calla jangi, which means literally like fort of war outside mazar I Sharif. Now, backing up a little bit mazarin Sharif had fallen to northern alliance forces, aided by our allies. Our allies aided by the CIA green berets and air force combat controllers and the awesome might have U.S. air power overhead on November 10th. Now, less than a month earlier, Mike spann had been one of 8 CIA officers who landed in the Darius souf valley, aboard two Black Hawk helicopters that had flown in from Kashi Khan about K two, a former Soviet air base that Uzbekistan government had given over to the Americans for this post 9 11 mission. So October 17th, 2001, they land at dropped into the unknown. First Americans behind America. So we are barely barely a month out since 9 11. Yeah. First Americans behind them enemy lines. Now there had been a CIA team called jawbreaker that had landed in the pantry of Ali on September 26th, but that was, you know, relatively speaking safe territory controlled by the northern alliance. But this was enemy territory, Taliban controlled territory. So 8 of them, four of them were paramilitaries, one of those was Mike span. So when paramilitary is somebody who's been seconded, usually from the military and is working in the CIA using their skills for the CIA. Yeah, usually they actually in the CIA sometimes their contractors or people who've been seconded and on some of the other teams that were actually serving members of the Delta force and seals. But the four paramount trees on team alpha were serving CIOs special activities, division. Scott spellman, who was on the cover of the book, he was later became very senior, it was the senior CIA guy on the National Security Council during the Trump administration. He became station chief in Kabul, but then a young officer, but already battle hardened he had been wounded in the battle of Mogadishu in Somalia in 1993. It was a guy called Alex Hernandez, who was the deputy chief, who was a sergeant major, gone full career in special forces and then joined the agency and two case officers, JRC, who was the chief who'd worked with the CIA out of Islamabad in the 1980s against the Soviets for the supply and stinger missiles to the mujahideen and David Tyson who you mentioned at the beginning who was with Mike span on November 25th 2001. So they're in unfriendly territory. This is the Ford of war, walk us through that event. So David was a case officer based in Tashkent and spoke Uzbek almost fluently. And so he's the linguist and the main linguist on the team, although JR, seger also he spoke diary, which was the sort of lingua franca in Afghanistan. But on that day, the team split, there's a big fight, a hundred miles to the east. It expected in Kunduz so the bulk of American forces are there. But the night before 400 Al-Qaeda prisoners had arrived on the eastern edge of mazarin reef to surrender, and it was extremely murky why they were there. They should have been surrendering in Kunduz. And basically, I mean, what I was able to establish almost beyond doubt is that this was a Trojan horse operation. It was a deliberate trap. Yeah, it was a Taliban Al-Qaeda operation to put pretend that for these 400 fighters had surrendered, but in fact they were made up remained armed. They sort of exploited Afghan custom to keep their weapons with them and they were planning an uprising. Because you can have lots of people surrender at once if it's a regular army during the Gulf War, we had thousands of Iraqis surrender at once. When it's irregular fighters, you don't usually get hundreds of them surrendering at the same time. It's a little bit

"But well, it had the nod from MI 6, and that's why he felt he was protected. And he felt that the funds would be replaced at the end of the operation and no one would know the money was missing. But obviously something went wrong. The money was not replaced. And something must have interfered with the funds in some way. Either the very fact of it going wrong or perhaps the fact that the funds were interfered with, which prevented the operation from happening, caused the powers to remove the protection and left hue to his own devices. Suggest theory is that British intelligence basically abandoned him. And they do that. They cut people loose. And that's when he realized crap, I'm 15 million pounds owing. And that's why he was scrambling to do all these business deals like buy a hundred pounds. And eventually Jeff is back in London. He's in this apartment by himself. It gets this knock at the door late at night. And it's his old business partner for those pub deals, Martin Pratt, he's a good friend Martin Pratt. And he just wanted to talk. So they go to this nearby pub and Martin starts spewing forth all this information. Turns out he'd been sacked by the company that was trying to buy all these pubs and do this big deal. He wanted someone's shoulder to cry and basically. But he starts to confide in Jeff that he had known all along that Hugh was involved with MI 6. And that he had occasionally done things for British intelligence. But he still said he knew nothing of what he had been involved in before his death. So it was a little bit of wonder though. Didi or was he just lying, but Martin did, however, have a lot to say about this individual named Philip, Philip D Malik. Now, this was a friend of his and Hughes, this mutual friend. Who was known as a Polish papal count who had been married in the temple church in Lincoln's in London, a former chapel of the knights Templar. What? Philip was apparently this guy Philip Denali. He was married in full chapel of the knights Templar, which will make sense in a moment. Was apparently always talking to Hugh about the knights of Malta and Freemasonry. Martin said Philip wanted Hugh to join all sorts of secret societies. And as he staggered drunk to his car, he said, stay away from Philip. He's more dangerous than he seems. So remember, Reggie had that ring with the two headed eagle. There's more to this. There's more to this than just British intelligence. Coming up after the breaking plus extension, this whole thing blows wide open. And we're going to hear about the knights of Malta? We're going to hear about secret societies, we're going to hear about ancient bloodlines going back a thousand years. He thought this was just a strange story. Obviously, spice stuff can be unusual, but you wouldn't mix in secret societies. I'm still trying to figure out who the demonic clown on the cover is by this point. And I'm thinking it worked today. I'm thinking maybe the knights of Malta explained the way a clown on the cover. Not knowing at any point that it's actually Margaret Thatcher. This is a very poor choice of photograph. But yeah, coming after the break, we're going to continue the story and figure out how this ends up going to the holy blood of the Holy Grail and the messianic messianic legacy. And how Princess Diana is involved as well. Oh, no. This gets insane. It's coming up on our plus extension right after this. Head to mysterious universe, all forward slash for all the details.

"It, the more it appeared this Buckley, the CIA head. Was in cahoots with a renegade British spy. Named Leslie Aspen. Now this is where it gets a little bit deeper. See, Les Aspen, he was an agent for British intelligence, but later on, he defected to the U.S. and he acted under the authority of William Casey who was reichen's director of the CIA. When Buckley was taken hostage in Lebanon, Aspen, this former British agent now working for the CIA becomes the late contract agent in efforts to negotiate a release for Buckley. So bottom line is he became like the behind the scenes fixer, who would do the actual negotiating with the terrorists? I see. You found the movie? Found the movie. It's the Delta force. So it's not exactly the same incident. It's Chuck Norris. It's not the same incident, but it's based along the same lines of what happens. That's so funny. I thought it was going to be like, oh, I wasn't this real serious kind of. Well, I thought it was going to be horrible. A spy thriller. It's still Hugh Jackman was one of the roles and the group is based on his beloved. Right. And then it's got the same kind of theme of what actually happened in that what I actually did shoot people and throw them in the comments. Tonight, I'm going to go home and download and watch it until very early in the morning. The Delta force. Think of delta four starring Chuck Norris as the accompanying movie to this segment. So yeah, this guy Les Aspen. Again, he's the behind the scenes fixer for these for dealing with terrorists to get these hostages back. Now, as soon as Jeff learns all this information, he's like, I've got to speak to Les Aspen. I've got a track him down. But the problem is, Les Aspen is dead. But he's the weird thing. He had a brother. His name was Michael Aspen. And Michael Aspen was in jail for fraud. And guess what fraud? Sent Michael Aspen to jail. He claimed that the money he had stolen. This is what he claimed all throughout the trial and stuck to this story. The money that he had stolen that had sent him to jail. Had been stolen to finance a deal to release hostages in Lebanon. It was an operation that had the full sanction of MI 6 and the British government. So so how does he. So here's this guy who's he's stolen millions of millions of dollars. He's now on trial trial for that fraud. And he's saying, I only stole this money because I was working for the British intelligence agencies to use the money to free British hostage. Don't put me in jail. Now Hugh. Who's suicided in the forest? He was also stealing millions of dollars. And Hughes father says to Jeff it's because he was trying to get a foreign agent out of oh sorry an agent out of a foreign country. So the scenario that's being painted here is British intelligence use civilian assets. I'm sure they do. To basically use this illicit funding because it couldn't be on the books anywhere. It had to be black money. Basically steal this money so that they can channel it to this back channel guy, Les Aspen. So he could free these agents. So that no one would know about it. It would all be off the books and eventually these guys would be paid back. There's a whole hidden world that we just have no idea. Now, the thing that becomes clear is maybe MI 6 was like, yeah, we could pay them back. But then we'd have this loose end who knows the true story. So it's probably easier to kill them. Oh, wow. And then no one is. Yeah, so that's where I'm like, is this what happened? Yeah, maybe. He said the coincidence between Michael aspens story and the rational advance to John Simmons for Hughes problems was intriguing. And there were all these connections between the Aspen boys. These fixes for the negotiating with terrorists and hue. See, the aspens were heavily involved in gun running around the Mediterranean. There was apparently you get guns from Yugoslavia, Yugoslavia and Bulgaria and Czechoslovakia. And then you get them to the coast of Spain and then by the way of Mars say, or some of the port from the south coast of France. You get the guns to the Middle East. It's like very elaborate gun running routes. So the Mediterranean is where you get them out of Europe. The Mediterranean just happened to place that Hugh love to go. He spent a lot of time there. He had told Jeff that he had spent early time in his intelligence career undercover in Marseille. He said, he and I visited the south of Spain from time to time, usually to do business. But a lot of time we were just wondering around the port area of marbella looking at boats. They spent a lot of time at the port for some reason. And he says that he remembers this weird day, this not actually, where they're walking along the port and Hugh looked at one of the yachts in the distance, and he's like, oh, that's Robert Maxwell's yacht. And for those of you who don't know max, well, Maxwell was the billionaire British publisher. He owned the Daily Mirror, the New York Post. He ended up being suicided off his own boat by now. Well, this is allegedly obviously. A lot of people say masad, because he was a Mossad agent. He was working with Mossad. The FBI has files on him that he was actually double agent that was working for the Soviets, although they could never prove a conclusively. And of course, we know Robert Maxwell, because his Ghislaine Maxwell's father was going to say, was that Hillary around with the snow cold? So galene Maxwell, who's obviously on Trump right now, the sex trafficking. The hall family has a very shady sticky past with the intelligence world. That's a whole other topic. But what was weird was that Hugh immediately recognized that yacht. And Jeff said, I could never understand how he recognized it because it was at night. It was dark, and it was on the other side of the harbor. Is there a unique features about it that you could recognize? Well, it suggests that he had been on the yacht. And if you've been on Robert Maxwell's yacht around this time period, you wouldn't forget it. Unless you are a hot model or a cocaine dealer, you would probably a spy. Yeah. So anyway, the summer of 1998, a couple of months before his death, he and his family had gone on a two week holiday and where do they go? The coast of Marseille, they go to that area. So it was obvious hew knew the area well. He had a fondness for it. So here's the theory. He was somehow involved in an operation to free a hostage in Lebanon. Part of his duties included making funds available, which he apparently stole from his clients as accounts. The operation had the nod from MI 6..

"Lawyer just let loose that they had found extra money and just like hang on a second. I thought you said you hadn't traced any of the money. And this is silence. And eventually they admit, they couldn't trace the 5 million pounds. They have no idea where it is. But while they are investigating, they found extra. Money. What do you mean they found extra money? 10 million pounds that's completely unaccounted for. This all this black money floating around hues wherever Hughes fingers of Bain. They've managed to trace an extra 10 million pounds. So it's no longer just 5 million pounds. It's now 15 million pounds of money that's like, we have not, we have no idea what's going on. So it doesn't belong to any of Simmons's clients and eventually once the penny drops, they're like, look, do you have any idea what where this extra 10 million pounds came from? And of course, Jeff, I have no idea what's going on. Now Jess had enough, he gets up to leave this meeting. It's obviously not helping him in any way. These guys don't know what the hell is going on. But as he's going to leave, that investigator from the private firm, the Cara two international fraud investigation firm. Jeff pulls him aside. And he says, look, I don't know if I buy your story, but just give me a few moments and I'm going to climb on top of the roof of the building and I'm going to watch you drive away. And let's just see if you'll follow it. And he's like, all right, yeah, I'll wait a few minutes. Go to the top of the building. So he does this. And when he drives off, there's a fake taxi. It's like clearly a fake taxi that immediately starts following it. So a couple of hell is going on. A couple of days later, he phones this guy back, this investigator guy is also called Jeff. He calls him back and he says, look, you're on the top of the roof. Did you see that I was followed? And he says, oh, yeah. I saw that you were followed by that taxi. And the other two cars as well. And it's this investigator's opinion that he's being tailed by what he describes as a classic three car tandem formation. And just like, what do you mean by classic? And the guy just hangs on the phone immediately. It's like, if you know what a class that you mention is, it's like, well, how do you know that? What's your background? He's like, he just cuts the conversation short. That's why. So next stop, he's like, I still got a clear my name. He goes to see the police. And he's like, they're accusing me if they're accusing me I'm going to meet him head on. He mates with a detective inspector lambent lambit and a detective sergeant Brown. And another inconclusive conversation follows. Lambert said that they were now openly looking for an accomplice, but he didn't seem to be making any real effort to find one. He just kept continually asking Jeff if he was ready to tell him where the missing money was. That's the only tactic. So we're looking for whoever did it, but why don't you just tell us that you stole all the money? Jessica, I didn't steal the money. He said the guy also visibly yawned when I suggested that he would find answers with British intelligence. Lambert did, however, this police officer confirmed that I was being followed, but not by them. There was a car that had followed me into the police parking lot and an officer was apparently dispatched to talk to the driver, but he couldn't reach him because the car quickly did a one 80 and sped away. Now, he ends up giving lamb but this detective a list of license plate numbers of the cars that have been following him for weeks now. And a few weeks later, he's on the phone with this inspector lambda. And lambda tells him that two of the plates are odd. One of them belongs to a firm of private investigators, and sorry, but the other to a company that doesn't exist. Here you go. So here's your shell company. Jeff's like, hang on a second, what does that mean? What do you mean a company that doesn't exist? And the police officer, he sounded kind of embarrassed and just wouldn't elaborate. But not half as embarrassed as when he had to admit that the type recording of our initial interview didn't exist because the recording machine had mal functioned. Convenient. Now, this is where it gets a little bit weird because he says this might have had something to do with the strange detective sergeant Brown that was also in that meeting. Now, he just introduced himself as Nick Brown. But the whole time during the interview, he just sat there his intelligence as well. Didn't say a word didn't do anything just sat there. And when Jeff said he called the police station to speak with lambit about the type recording? Of course, they've got his phone tapped. Well, when he asked for sergeant Brown, he was told that there's no sergeant Brown that works here. Yeah. Yeah, now this is where we get a bit of an explanation around this. Apparently, this is pretty common. So you've got MI 6 and MI 5 in the UK that intelligence. So is MI 6 external MI 5 is in terms of MI 6 is like foreign splined spying stuff and MI 5 is the domestic counterpart. But don't think of it as the FBI, because MI 5 can only go after foreign spies. It can't go after UK citizens. That's why they're a part of 5 eyes, and they use other countries to do that for them. Precisely, yeah. They can't act as like everyday law enforcement within the UK. So they can't even question criminal suspects. For this to be done, it has to get its office MI 5 has to get its offices to pretend to be police officers. Yeah, right. And it's like he points out that a bunch of investigative journalists have proven this basically. But a tell tale sign that an MI 5 sit in was like an MI 5 agent, not a real police officer, is that they always disappear. They disappear. They don't say anything. And then he's like, why is MI 5 interested in me? And almost as a lock, he contacts Jeff Hughes, the guy that was the investigator that's stolen on the roof to see if he was followed. He calls this Jeff Hughes guy. And he's like, can I have a copy of that type of our mating with the law society? And Jeff's like, ah, the funny thing about that type recording has been lost. Of course it has. So what is going on? What has he gotten himself into? There's something much bigger going on here. Definitely. It's espionage, and as we said, political intrigue, there's something major happening. Well, finally, Reggie Cole's back. He gets a phone call at this friend's house that he's staying. He has no idea how Reggie found the number.

"Down. He's cries in shock. And when everyone else was gone from the office, he started to gather some of the files and records that he hadn't shown the law society when there were coming in to do their initial investigation. He had no cause to worry beforehand because he thought his friend and boss Hugh was rich. But now he wanted more careful calculations of what had been going on for the past year and a half. He said, the answer chilled me to my roots. There actually was 5 million pounds missing. But he started to think he realized, hang on a second. There's no way you could have spent this over a year and a half. He would be throwing away 40,000 pounds a week. They were great friends, like he knew the guy. He wasn't living lavishly. He wasn't driving new cars every second week. I just didn't make sense to spend that. Now, the theory, the press catches onto the story and the press starts rolling out these headlines that this high rolling conservative star had emptied his clients bank accounts, Stalin all this money to finance some kind of get rich quick scheme that had obviously failed. They didn't know what the scheme was. But that was the press's guess. And that's what they just kept running with. There was this agreement that he didn't spend the money. There was some kind of investment. But that was it. That's where everyone else left the story. He said, they had an answer for his death. It was this missing money. But Jeff says, I didn't have an answer for the money going missing. It didn't make sense. And we said, look, I had no illusions about Hugh's character. He was ambitious. He would cut corners. But it's still left to burning questions in my mind about this allegedly stall and money. Why hadn't he run away with it? It's not like it was outside of his character. Why had he thought he could get away with it in the first place as well? Now, with rumors swelling around town that Jeff was an accomplice, the press was running these headlines that he had a business partner that was probably involved. He had relatives in the U.S. so he basically jumps on a plane and he just goes and stays with him for a while. But a few days before he leaves, he has lunch with Hughes father, John Simmons. Now, at the end of the launch, with no warning. Here's father John turns to Jeff and says in this deadpan voice. That had been approached by two gentlemen, he'd prefer not name. And these strange gentlemen. Dressed in black weaken assume. Had told him that Hugh had taken all of the money to, quote, get an agent out of a foreign country. You mean like a secret agent? Yeah. And he said, I realized I'd never included it in my equations, the fact that Hugh had mentioned to me from time to time that he was an officer with MI 6. And you'd think he would consider that. If you, Aaron, well, I found you dead in the forest, God forbid one day. I would consider that you were working for an Australian intelligence or something. Like that would come off in my calculations. But no, it never crossed his mind. And he says, that's when I had a sudden vision of blinding clarity. It was the look on Martin's face. Remember that guy in the office who didn't look sad? He had another look on his face. Jeff says now I realize it wasn't shock on his face. It wasn't surprise it wasn't anger. It was fear. What would have been called out? His business partner was scared. He had called naked fear on his face. Now he does say and you get the sense that Hugh would brag about a lot of things like that was just in his character. And this brag about being an MI 6, I don't think Jeffrey ever took it seriously. Yeah, he thought it was a joke. It's kind of like, oh, you know, he's just like, maybe he had some connection. He did something for them once, but he just he's just boasting about it. He's making it into this exaggerated story. Skip ahead in the story and the car and his inquest on Hugh is held on March the 20th, 1989. The verdict is suicide. Like they rule out foul play. The law society reveals for the first time that the missing money is now 3.8 million. Because someone's not stepping forward to claim their money. Which is strange. Why would someone not step forward to claim 1.2 million pounds? Is it laundering for some type of black ops? Immediately, you got to think, well, let's dirty money. If it's 1.2 million and no one's putting their hand up for it. But then how did it get into their accounts in the first place then? I'm not quite sure of the relationship. There are law firms so they have an escort. Yeah, it must be an escrow account for clients. I don't know who the clients are. It's not mentioned. You're going to hide money in an escrow, it would be the way to do it. The interest of the law society beyond regulation is a bit fuzzy to me as well. I think it's some of their money that's gone missing or at least their responsibility to retrieve it. Sure. Because it's a lawyer and they represent all lawyers in the UK. Anyway, because Wally's in America, all these headlines keep rolling out that Hayes possibly and accomplice to this missing money. He basically calls this this journalist. These times Chris Hutchins, and he says, look, the clary's name, what's going on with the story you wrote? I have nothing to do with this. What's your source? Why are you writing these smearing headlines? Who's your sources and this journalist Hutchins just says, oh, my sources are the police and the law society. So the law society slandering him? Yeah, they're basically saying we don't know where the money is, but we're pretty sure this other guy. Jeff gilson knows where it is. I'm surprised that I would say that because I leave themselves vulnerable. To actually make false claims like that. Well, this journalist is quite clever because he says, well, do you have your own theory? And this journalist Chris Hutchins, he said, he knew he had hit gold because Jeff, why did a few seconds before he answered? Because obviously had his theories that he was murdered that he was murdered. So he Chris this journalist because the silence had dragged on. He says, look, does this have anything to do with the D notice that was slapped against Hughes story? And Jeff's like, what? See, there's a bit of an explanation here. Britain doesn't have a First Amendment. So every media outlet has a civil servant from the Ministry of Defense on staff. There's going to be someone checking the news stories. And if this civil servant from the minister of defense believes that an article has something that might endanger national security, I'll get sensitive. They censor it, and it's called a day notice. And the story is just killed. Now, that's just in Australia. Yeah, this journalist tells Jeff that a friend of his was this TV producer for the BBC. And this producer had told him that they had already done this half hour segment on hue for newsnight. It's like 60 minutes in the UK. And it was all ready to go was post production was done. They were ready to roll it out. The last minute, it got D noticed. Yep. The story got canned by the Ministry of Defense. Now, Jeff hears this, and he's like, okay, go and check with your sauce. If the source confirms the day notice, I'll talk to you. I'll tell you my theory, I'll give you a story. So about an hour later, this journal's Chris, he calls back Jeff. And he's really agitated. He's really nervous. And he tells Jeff that the tave producer is not only now denying that there had been a denote. He's even denying that he had ever spoken to Chris about it. It's.

"He's directed to the same by one of the policemen. Now, when he enters the Woods, and he comes across the company car, he realizes the car sitting all on its own in this clearing. And he looks back over his shoulder and one of the first thoughts he has is like, this is like a strange place to hide away and commit suicide. Because you can see the car from the road. He remembers the help. He just remembers having this flitting thought. Now, that thought he says is snuffed out because he gets the glimpse of the Martian body. He can't see any facial features. But he recognizes the cause. It's the close that he's friend hue is wearing the night before. And he said at that moment, the world around me seemed to float in silent slow motion, all he could hear was the thumping of his heart in his chest. And when he finally stirred up to the driver's side of the car and kind of crouched down, he saw his friend and he realized that he just looked like he was asleep. And essentially Hugh had committed suicide inverted commas by putting a brick on the accelerator leaving the car in neutral, and he could see. Gassing himself. Yeah, there was a pipe coming from the exhaust back into the car. He said, all I knew was my friend was gone and I couldn't for the life of me work out why. So who was Hugh Simmons, this guy that's committed suicide? On the face of it, he was the epitome, he says, of the 80s thatcherite ambition. So he was middle aged. He was around 40 years old. Tall dock and handsome. But he had this serious commitment to the British Conservative Party had real ambition to become a member of parliament. And for 17 years, this has been his calculated life plan to finally make it become a conservative MP in middle age. At age 27, he became a partner at this exclusive law firm in London of this London solicitor. He married Janet, the one of his childhood sweethearts, and he put in 17 hour long days kissed babies charmed old ladies fixed Suez and potholes for the municipal government, like, did everything he could to be a good public servant, a good politician, but it was ambition so he could rise in the ranks of the party. In the general election of 1979, he was a losing candidate for the Conservative Party. But it was a really it was a state that I never won, and wanted to end it up happening was that it was the biggest swing to the Tories, the conservative politics in England. The UK, sorry. That he got noticed. It was like this massive swing. The biggest in history, so he was finally awarded a safe seat that he landed in 1983. This was southwest Cambridge. And that's the one that was ruined by his wife. I don't know how this happened, there's no details. But his wife made some statement about how she was against fox hunting and then the press got on top of this and the pals that people were like what you're against fox hunting and he ended up canceled before. It was the thing. He got canceled. He got kind of kicked out. And then he doubled his misfortune by being deselected from this other safe conservative seat in 1987 because he had an illegitimate son with another woman. There's all this kind of controversy, but they were kind of hiccups in this upward trajectory that this guy had. In 1998, he was one of Margaret Thatcher's favorite speech riders. He was a respected member of the Conservative Party's national union, executive committee. So he was going well. He was actually despite those setbacks. He was on his way up. And he'd basically taken a sabbatical from running for office to set up his own law practice in bacon's failed. And he was also doing business on the side. He was developing this company that owned 5 point ones. They had a turnover of several million pounds in the previous 6 months he'd been wheeling and dealing big time. He had been negotiating a loan of 25 million pounds to buy a hundred more pubs from the UK's largest hospitality company. So it was really big moves. So you had this wealth around the corner had political fame just around the corner. His wife his life was going incredibly well. Why kill yourself? Because he didn't Jeff just couldn't figure it out. So he goes to see Hugh's parents. Has his first stop and, you know, there's a lot about him kind of sitting down with Hughes mother and they are drinking brandy and consoling each other. Until Jeff finally bloated out to Hughes mother. He's like, I don't get it. Why would he kill himself? It can't have been the money he had all that money he made trading for aunty stock. And his mother kind of said, what money are you talking about? That ferrante stock was his father's and it was meant to be left for the grandchildren. He didn't have a penny. In fact, he had to borrow 400,000 pounds from his father just a couple of years ago. And Jeff's like, oh. Why did the 5 million? No, he realizes I need to get back to the office fast, because now the possibility of his friend and business partner, having stolen the money is becoming a reality in his mind. A few moments ago, he thought, why would he do that? He has all this he's rich. But that's why he's a huge mother is just said, no, that's not true. So he gets back to the office and the law society is waiting. And the law societies basically the governing body of it's like a regulator of every legal practitioner in the UK. Solicitors lawyers. They all pay their Jews to the law society. And he gets grilled by this God that's there. Because clients are complaining that they can't get their money. This money's disappeared. He says we quickly ascertained that the law firms clients account was shy about a million pounds. And this has gone shy in the past year and a half. And he's like, so that's it. That was all it was. The bastard, he said. He got bored, with waiting to become an MP. He blew a bunch of pocket change. He scampered. He left the rest of us to pick up the pieces. The bastard. Now the rest of the days like this whirlwind of emotions and people keep coming through the office to say what the hell happened. Condolences where's our money? It's just this nonstop through the office. And he basically quarantines himself in this small corner office. Friend and business partner of Hughes, Martin Pratt, the guy that was involved with him doing that big deal with all the pubs. He had a strange expression on his face. And he saw him during the day, and he couldn't quite figure out. It wasn't sadness. He had a different expression on his face, and I'll come back to that in a moment. This goes other business partner. Anyway, at the end of the day, when everyone's gone, he basically breaks.

"Back on Friday or something. And it is mental, and curse you, Steve Kirkwood art at S Kirk would art on Twitter. Because it's the kind of book where, in order to progress the plot, you need to know the background. It takes people. It takes like a side story into 50 pages of the most complex political intrigue political conspiracy you can imagine. He's the entire history of the Iran contra scandal in order to understand the character John. So painful. No, it's actually great. No, but it's painful getting to the information. Hard to research. I just wanted to do like a little pol to book for the show today. And you just thought against that? No, just I'm stuck with this political conspiracy. So I take it that magie and we're talking about political intrigue, we're talking about Margaret Thatcher. Well, I didn't know that. You see the cover of the book has what looks like a demonic clown on the cover. The whole time I was reading it. I'm like, when is this demon clown on the cover going to make an appearance in the story? It wasn't until the afternoon. This is how dumb I am. I look closely. I'm like, oh, that's his face. And that's Mikey, that's Maggie. Okay, I get it now. It's not there's no demonic clown coming at all. But by then, I was too committed to the story that I have to do it on the show today. But is it the book about her? Why didn't you say I just didn't ever make the kid? I never made the connection. Look at the photo of her. She looks like it does look like a demonic clown. I will give you that. She looks like an extra in the movie it. She does. Yeah, it's got a kind of it feeling to it. What have you got today? Well, I'm going to go into alien energy, UFO's ritual landscapes and the human mind by Andrew Collins. I ordered this a while back, and it's finally arrived. You know how shipping is just crazy at the moment. It's impossible to get anything. Finally turned up. So I thought, you know, this will just be a light read. I'll just thumb through it. Is this Andrew Collins from crop circle history fame? Yeah, he's incredible. He's done a lot of work with people like Martin capeman Graham Phillips. I mentioned some of their work on the show before. In fact, when you're away, I went into that great story about the I of fire. It really fantastic researcher. And this book, it just went in a direction I didn't expect. And it gives some real insight into, I guess it's kind of a cross between the stone tape theory about why we have haunted phenomena in certain locations. Ties in with the idea of why people see poltergeists or experience strange shadow like apparitions in their homes, after seeing UFOs. It all relates to something about us. There might be some type of phenomenon that's going on in our minds. That when you interact with a certain location, some, and there could be some ancient kind of group we don't really know, but there's an ancient force of ancient energy on this earth that when modern humans interact with it, it releases this explosion of not to simply light phenomena, a lot of that comes up, but also strange basically figures entities, visions of the past. Anything that's particularly high strangeness seems to pop up when you have these encounters where all these locations. So everywhere, they're all across the world. We're going to start in Australia and we're going to make them here. There's some here. And it even comes down to this crazy concept, right? That crop circles are actually temporary temples. What? They're like worship locations, their locations where, you know, people obviously go to temples. People go to temples because they have a spiritual meaning. And you go to these locations and they have an importance to them. And so if you look back to neolithic times and where we see these ancient stone structures that are being constructed, seemingly on very important sites around the world. I mean, very important energetic locations around the world. And from a modern archeological perspective, we just go, oh, we don't really know why they put them there, but they did. But some more controversial archeologists and people in researchers in this field have said, well, no, there was an importance to placing it on that site because how it's a power spot. It might have some psychic influence. It might generate energy of some kind. Well, that all kind of ties in with the idea of being unknown energies. And then these particular sites, yes, the ancients knew about putting permanent ones in, but whatever the intelligence is behind possibly crop circles. It actually puts in those crop circles because they're temporary temples and people flock to them because they do. Generating this sigh energy, which causes an occurrence of high strangeness. It sounds completely insane. I love it. It is fantastic. It's very different to what I've got coming up. I'm sure what you've got coming up is quite insane. Jeffrey gilson is the author of this book. Maggie's hammer came out in 20 15. And let me just set the same for his life. This is back in November of 1988. He was 32 years old. He was living in the same small English town that he'd grown up in. And he considered his life to be pretty ordinary as an ordinary guy. Ordinary life, and he had this great friend. He had met his friend Hugh Simmons when they fenced with each other on the political scene in their hometown, though from the same hometown. This is in beaconsfield in Buckinghamshire. And they became close friends. And they started to, as they got older, rise to the ranks of the British Conservative Party. And they said, this ambition to become members of parliament? Jeffrey says hey was a step or two behind Hughes because Hugh was 9 years older. But he then managed to screw up a couple of opportunities. He had some conservative parliamentary seats that were basically lined up for him. And because of certain personal circumstances, he ended up losing them. One of them was that his wife was against fox hunting and one of the seats was like Cambridge. And you can not be against fox hunting in Kane. No. That is. Unheard of. But he basically became, well, he set up his own law practice. He did the older guy in bacon's filled and Jeff said he became his senior employee. And like he said, ordinary guy, ordinary life. Then one fateful November morning. He found and this is like the crappiest start to the week. It's probably a Monday. He finds himself staring down at his friend and bosses dead body. In the clearing of some local Woods. And he said, I couldn't for the life of me work out why he might have committed suicide. But the weirdness had only begun. What do you mean though that he found himself that he missing time? I'll get to it. I'll get to it in a moment. Back at the lore office, this is why it's a bad day at work. He discovered that some 5 million pounds was missing from the firm's clients account. He said look, I was devastated by his death. I was confused by the theft, and concerned for his children because there was no suicide note left. But he said the primary reason I started poking around was a lot more prosaic. I needed to clean my name. He was the fall guy. He was set up. Everyone thought he was an accomplice to this missing money. Society needed a scapegoat, he said, who was alive? And that was me. I fit the bill. So he started to ask questions and that's when he was launched into this roller coaster adventure. Of international mystery and intrigue. And he says it's an Odyssey that continues even now. So let me go to that fateful day. It was November 15th, 1988. He Jeff arrives at the office and Martin Pratt's there. He was a close friend of Hughes. Wondering where the hell he is. Nobody had seen him. Shortly after this conversation, he said, Jill, the receptionist, ranked through to say that there was a hoax call or on the telephone. She's like, can you take care of this? And if there's someone calling and he's saying he's a police officer and they found a body. Can you just get rid of him? So he takes the call. And it's this place constable on the line, saying he had found one of the shared company cars with a dead body in it. It looked like a suicide. Now Jeff's skeptical he still thinks it's a prank, but the guy in the funds really serious, so he drives out to meet him these local Woods. Where the car's been discovered. And he arrives at the spot and he realizes this is the real deal. This police everywhere. And.

Tom spooner Former delta force seventh special forces group which is always partial to my heart. There he did a twenty one years in the military And then after he was out he had problems. Like with a lot of veterans. Do it Tbi and he started a while he was cofounder. I should say Warriors heart and it's called war is hard dot com. It's a ranch located in bandera texas just outside of san antonio and we're going to talk to them all about all of this stuff but before we only further. Let's bring him onto the podcast. Tom thanks for taking the time with us this afternoon. Steve thanks for having me. I'm happy to be here is that we're military podcast. So everyone loves hearing. Everyone's bio can you tell us a little bit about yourself in your military career. Yes i'll i'll try to do short version as possible and then we can dive into whatever parts you'd like to but So i came in the military in nineteen ninety was basic training. You know right when i was a basic training to gulf war kicked off and Funny story was told my would-be wife at the time you know that there's nothing going on in the military. He was all worried about or never happen. Had happened in years. And then when i was a basic off so with the basic ait jump school and Straight to the eighty second and then was there a couple of months then over to the gulf so from ninety to ninety five i was in the eighty second i the five fourth then ninety six to two thousand one thousand seven special force group as a team charlie and then from two thousand one and two thousand until two thousand eleven. When i retired. I was out at the unit and i ended up. Doing twelve appointments Forty total months. Time in combat. And and then i retired. One of our writers here saw from george hann was over in the unit. I don't know if you know. George i know who he is. We didn't work together. But i definitely know who he is. Yeah georgia's quite popular. He writes some great stories and He just published a book. So i look forward to reading that one soon. But let's talk about you You know after all this time in the military. Obviously you had some problems of your own. Can you get into that a little bit. Absolute whenever so for me. Fortunate or unfortunate. I consider it fortunate. I struggled with that with alcohol and alcoholism at a young age and and i ended up getting sober whenever i was twenty two years old when i was in the second so the majority of my military career ditton didn't drink and i am not the alcohol. Police have not you know what i'm saying. Like alcohol is a huge part of our community Huge part of our culture. And what we do and don't have any problem with it. But if this if al goes destroying your marriage or destroying your family or destroying your career you know as being a soldier a then i got a problem with that and you should too you know so. I just want to be very clear that i'm not a teetotaler you know i mean i couldn't spend eighteen years spec ops with that kind of attitude you know so no. It's tough i mean. Alcohol is a big part of winding down. I guess put yeah. it's me i just. I was one of those guys that you would get all lit up one night and do like insane things and you say. Hey bro you. You probably shouldn't great. You know. 'cause i i always say as you know. I'm allergic to. Alcohol breakout and handcuffs. You know it's so anyway. Al did not agree with me. And so i ended i. I got sober. You know. I had to get some help and got sober but The thing was it just made me a more incredible soldier. You know at a for me anyway. Again not pushing it on anyone. It was what i needed to do. And then So that was a big part of the story especially when it comes. You know what too whenever i got out but also Whenever i was in Especially you know from two thousand one to two thousand and ten when i was still deploy in In two thousand and six got a undiagnosed. Tbi you know during those time frames. I mean everybody was getting blown up. You know it wasn't. I mean it wasn't like oh my god i got blown up. Maybe i should get checked out. It was like oh Finally interclub now. I guess you know and but it was. It was significant. And i didn't know it at the time. I ate a eighty two millimeter mortar round. Probably about eight meters away. it was Yeah so that's where. I got a and that was two thousand six so i kept deploy you know and working around a lot of explosives lot more concussions. And everything in now. We know that that stuff is non-linear you know it's it's not increment. Also i had some pretty significant Tbi going on. And and i had a fair share of Post traumatic stress or what. I just like calling on process trauma you know and and so That got me into a really bad way. Come two thousand ten and So i'd never. I'd never planned on getting out of the military man. I was freaking super lifer. You know what i mean. I mean from the time. I was old enough to remember that. Ten year old kid running around vietnam vet uncles. Us paratrooper death from above. T shirt on you know it was yes so i never you know thirty years. You know wherever they're going to have to kick me out but between the the p. t. s. and the mainly the tv. I s.

We all got special same happened to me. I met med board out ninety eight. So yeah so it was so you know it was. It was really rough by talks about the transition and You know in transition out of any profession for when that's what you've spent your whole adult life doing you know is a big deal especially the one we were involved in and You know but i mean i was i was. I was in a bad way. I ended up going to the Clinic here on fort bragg and got tested and and so the kind of a cool thing. I guess you can say cool with brain trauma but You know when the i took all the tests you know that six hours worth of testing with puzzles and with a person and in a so a definitive is not subjective to. Who's reading it. You know it's it's it's definitive. And when the doc who was reading it to me you know he said hey you're operating at fifty percent Processing speed you're operating fifty percent verbal memory so my symptoms at that time was Like at times.

"delta force" Discussed on Mentors for Military Podcast

"Tricky. And i'm on a board of directors now for veteran's life center just north of raleigh in butner which just opened this year to allow up to one hundred male and female veterans to find a place to live for two years. Well we train them for next career we get into the security Absurd the training. They need for next job and they've got drug and alcohol abuse centers right nearest psychiatric hospital right years. So it's the first of the. Va as a test centers to see if the veteran system can manage. Its own veterans and build a future forum. It's kind of exciting to watch. That happen no no doubt. Actually i guess it was around this time. Or what around two thousand eight. I guess it was something around that time frame that you decided to get out or two thousand six thousand six okay. That's twenty year markan again. I was a staff officer. But i still did half my time seeing patients and your stuff and delivering babies but it was time and i went to work in fayetteville for the biggest family practice group there because they actively recruited me and i was there for about a month and i came to live. I said this is to work. I i said. I'm the junior doctor in their organization. Listen to me. And i've been a clinic commander my entire career and i don't like not being listened to so i gotta find another option at about that same time. An unsolicited letter arrived going. We've got this clinic in the raleigh area that doesn't have a doctrine needs one and we'll just give it to you if you want it. Mass mailing you know. And i look denisot sweetheart. March son lives in raleigh. What do you think. I go check this out and And i up there. And you know because i had my nba before med school. I not to read a balance sheet. And so i grabbed their clinic numbers and i looked at him owed. They're making money and up. It's just me. I would be in charge again very important and i went home and says we don't sell house moving and she goes thank you. Let's go to raleigh where their son lives. It turned out to be a brilliant solution The clinic was was when i took it over but did did very well with leadership and and Mentoring that i had learned in the military and eleven months. After i took it over we won best clinic. Eastern county across. All the medical specialties. And it we grew so fast. I had to build a new place so i i went to the bank now. I got fifties years old now. And i'm starting to make money as a civilian doctor. More than i did in the military and trying to save a little bit of money. And i go sweetheart. I think i'd like to go borrow four million dollars in the bank risk. Everything we own an ever will earn to build a new clinic across the street. Oh my gosh. you're you're the only dock in town gobert. And i brought some partners and built ground up a fourteen thousand square foot multispecialty clinic right on the main drag of town. Little town called knightdale north carolina and that was the night family medicine clinic. Okay yep it's a. It's a bedroom community of raleigh and it was successful blessed little heart from day one and i sold it last year and retired from my active daily practice after fourteen years. You know taking care of the baby. The baby the patients in in knightdale And you know it's a retired. Not because i really wanted to but because the system was making it hard to have the kind of fun that my whole life has been you know my life has just as i just told you heard. It had fun seal. You know funding medical world fun as a civilian in charge. But when you couldn't be in charge in the system is just beating up doctors on a regular basis. I said you know maybe now's a good time to get out and see if there's something else i can do. And i just published my second book on on doctoring. Now you have to ask me about my book. I i wanna say though because you you said you retired but yet like most of us. You don't really retired now and yeah. You became the managing director with the victory strategies. A boutique leadership consultancy So tell us a little bit about that. Oh no that was another fun adventure. That is you know it's an oh by the way Because i was. I was still practicing fulltime until one year before are tied at halftime. Just because i. I could see the handwriting. On the wall. And the the victory strategies people were actually leadership and management consultants that are mostly navy seals or special operations folks and they've grown include men and women and marines air force folks and they help fortune five hundred companies and fortune one hundred companies learn leadership in management. The same things that allowed me to take my failing clinic and turn it into a success story. We all use the same basic techniques that the leadership skills that the military teaches us. And and for those. It might listen to this podcast. And don't weren't in the military that you and i know they don't understand what you and i do. You come out of the military innately ability to lead people because of the fact that even at the lowest level and listening to your meeting people and when you come into the civilian world the big difference that catches a lot of military. People by surprise is accomplishing. The mission in the civilian world is not as important as making your boss. Look good if you wanna get ahead in the civilian world you no matter what you do you must credit your boss for it and you know these observant be supportive and you know different and not get rewarded when you do something special like fix the broken system because your boss and your boss's boss did that and you know if you do in the civilian world like we would do in the military like i think i'll go talk to the inspector general and tell them that something's broken or i think go knock on the commanding officers door and give them a better idea you that in the civilian world they will punish you they will punish you hard and so you have to learn that it works differently it still works you know but if you use your chain of command the way you learn you know you've always learned and don't go outside of the civilian world can eventually reward you know you gotta have some difficult times in the process and un also on to serve on a board of directors and yeah gives you currently still are with veteran's life center with which is really providing housing and training for hundred men and women in life transition from the military to finding a secure future and so committed you there because i think you know we've got as you just talked about people coming off of active service that are really struggling to find that passion and purpose in an occasion they just need a helping handsomer here. Yes are absolutely good. I mean good pick up..

"delta force" Discussed on Uncensored Advice For Men

"I-. Tom was very charismatic. And charming finding he also commanded the room. So when i would go on these training exercises. There was a lot of respect for tom. his stature as a command sergeant major of delta force. So when you go into special operations. Like i'll tell you. When i met tom i didn't know what delta force was. I was like no clue. I heard of seals in so the guy who's walking down the hallway to meet him. He's like have you ever seen black hawk down like i think maybe did that. Come out like in ninety. Like oh my god how does your equal my world. And then i'm like. I don't know he's like well he's one of the delta force logins and he became this legendary operator and everything and i went. Is that the same as a seal. The guy just turned around stopped walking in because he was former delta force to looked at me. Like how are you doing on this. Yes. i'm gonna kill you. What are you doing on this contract. You don't even know who these guys are. But i had no clue zero clue. So i didn't know when i met tom and we became friends that he had ptsd. I didn't even know what. Ptsd was really. Nor did i at the time. But i knew had anger issues so we started looking at kind of the symptoms. Like you need some anger management therapy like yesterday and you probably need to talk to somebody. About how many drinks you drink every night so like you never sleep more than two to three hours a night. That can't be good for you. And so i started going down the symptoms in googling like all the time and nothing lead me back to ptsd which was weird and so it wasn't until we were together. And then i started working with the seals. i started hearing the same issues. Tom head with these guys are like twenty eight years old. You know tom's fifty three so at the time it was you know he was upper. Forty s. i don't think you did a fox. Your ex wife schuss early on. But i i started noticing the same patterns in the young guys and i thought wait. Something's going on here and in so really kind of. It's in tom's book he talks about it. I talk about it in mind as well. So we're open. We talk about all our dirty laundry and the uncomfortable stuff by early signs to keep assured. Or you're an asshole advocate everything you're an asshole and you don't listen to anybody because you know the way and you'll save lives if you just follow me and you slowly learn that you're no longer in charge this battlefield 'cause it's not your battlefield right. It's it's life it's not a battlefield you you don't need to manage it and run it. You're probably not gonna get shot. There's a possibility but it's not a probability anymore so getting guys out of that mindset. Yeah i think the things that we talk about. We talked to spouse groups all the time. Now it's a big part of what we do. Is we work with spouses..

"Delta Force is a highly trained mobile special force operations, which we would probably say now anti-terrorism. And it's basically the army's navy seals, but they have a lot of like that as I, said my one of my good friends was army rain actually. His friend is Kinda friend, too, so two of them. They one guy did One, tour in Iraq one tour. In Afghanistan And Iraq were going down freeways and Hummers and Afghanistan you're going down a dirt road in. Datsun pickup trucks. But those guys had to go through all the extra training to prove. That! They're they could be rangers. And, they could be you know. I'm I'm sure a ranger, airborne guy or a Delta Force Guy Paratrooper I should say the born green berets. They'll I'll tell you that they're the best of the best. but I mean I think if you ask most Americans. If you had to do a mission of extraction. Who would you want? I think the first one. We probably say his navy seals, but that's not to say that the Delta Force isn't right there, too. Am I on the right now. I think I am anyway Chrissy. Thank you for the email This has been your military history lesson for Tuesday tomorrow we'll be talking about the war of eighteen seventy, which we also refer to as the Franco Prussian war breech, loading cannons versus muzzle loading cannons.

Booing The President, What Goes Around Comes Around Politics And al-Baghdadi's death

"Trump was at the game last night where he was greeted with boos when his attendance was announced during the game accord the Washington Post the crowds sustained booing hit almost one hundred decibels and was followed by chance of lock him up impeach trump when he was introduced after the third inning he good morning and welcome to morning Joe it is Monday October twenty eight and with us we have MSNBC contributor Mike Barnicle White House reporter for the Associated Press Jonathan Lemere president of the Council on Foreign Relations and author of the bulk a world in disarray Richard Haass columnist and Associate the Washington Post David Ignatius and former NATO Supreme Allied Commander Retired Four-star Navy Admiral James to Rita's he's chief international security and diplomacy analyst for NBC News and Msnbc it was sort of startling and sad to hear those chance of lock him up Saturday from the crowd I do no pleasure in that it really was there have been many traditions that have been brought about Donald trump and his supporters and people around that are UNAMERICAN of even fascist like a chance of lock her up the sent her back but the lock lock her up about Hillary Clinton repeatedly has become a centerpiece and that's what that's what dictators they take over and then they start talking about imprisoning others and it's un-american it's it's here here playing chant here aw that's that's unfortunately it's been fad to America's political system through Donald Trump and last night it was turned against him it but again it's it's it's un-american and the people in the stands that were doing it last night shouldn't have done it in fact they learned they have learned from Donald Trump that's what you do to political opponents I hope that Donald Trump after saying that he could be facing this entire campaign will cut it out we'll cut it up because this is I remember when Barack Obama was leaving office a lot of liberals wanted George W Bush tried by some international tribunal. I remember saying don't do it because it will be you on the other side of the presence he didn't have to worry about retribution from person that you follow yeah of course you don't you never think Mike Barnicle nobody everything's said anybody's ever going to follow them as president the United States when they first get in just like Donald Trump it's never he's never imagined it but live by the sword die by the sword and sure enough now you have donald trump having bar conduct an outrageous an outrageous investigation against Barack Obama and Donald Trump even calling the forty fourth president United States treasonous it's like this guy is just not smart enough to figure out that it goes around comes around and what he dishes out to others will be dished out to him that's why everybody has to tone it down stop chance stop with fat stop with fascists like tactics and the rhetoric it's just on I'm American and it's just not right yeah Joe and you know if you know this I mean most people know this what of people in this country just want the entire situation calmed down they want the country to come down they want candidates to come down be tough to have the crowd last night come down because really into it unfortunately but I think it's important going forward especially today as we talk about the events that occurred over the weekend that we take the time and the fought to separate it donald trump and whatever you feel about Donald trump to separate him and how he behaves in how he speaks from the actions of the Delta Force team the special operation now flew in and conducted that mission is to separate things and the best of the best of who we are and what we do around world's in why so much of the world still relies on this was in operation over the weekend Jonathan Lemaire you can speak to that but also last night yeah I mean it is certainly an American tradition to boo politicians who go to baseball games there's there's a rich history of the American president seeing the American pastime William Howard Taft was the first president throwing the first pitch I remember the Barco was there and every president since has at some point this accident has not yet not since taking office but he went last night I think the people around him we're hoping it could be part of the victory lap after announcing the death of album Dotty earlier in the day that of course was not the case but let's remember he's deeply deeply unpopular in the district of Columbia itself received about four percent of the vote there in two thousand sixteen obviously it's a little bit of a different crowd last night the world series it's more out-of-towners more corporate types still he was going to get booed and he was but certainly it comes at the end of what his administration feels like a a a significant watershed day for him to be able to make this announcement of the death as Mar Mike said you could separate the president and feelings towards him with what happened the day before in Syria this leader of Isis killed this is just gives president an image he thinks to put alongside President Obama's announcement of the death of Sama Bin Laden and it certainly comes at exactly the right time his people feel for it's an undeniable triumph to happen during the midst of the impeachment inquiry and it allows him to defend his Bryant C. and Syria just somebody Republican senators critical we know we're here we can we get we're GonNa get to that right now get Sewri obviously just follow pro Jonathan said there is a very long enrich fish presence it sporting events most of them do all different but now but again I speak to the lock him up chance again I it's just un-american it started with Donald trump in fact he's made it the centerpiece of his campaign rallies we find it sickening when it happened rallies Kinda sickening it's we we are Americans and we do not do that we do not want the world hearing has chant lock him up to that he created this president or any president that's all I'm saying let's hope is move forward maybe this one US fascist tactic he and his supporters us during chance that you were going to actually imprison your political opponents so let's evatt behind and just I don't we'll see we'll see if the astros possible going to finish it off in Houston I don't know if Max can pitch game seventy it's possible that's what she will tell me before we came but I said President Trump yesterday confirmed the death of Isis later Abu Baqer al-Baghdadi following a raid this weekend in northwestern Syria by US special operations forces president trump tease the announcement in the tweet on Saturday night writing quote something very big has happened God I know by the way they had not confirmed it happened at the time as the Washington clown show post points out the White House script on the death of brutal terrorist Abu Bakar Al Baghdadi was short but president trump turned a somber announcement into a vivid forty minute news conference that included bravado detailed descriptions of military option rations questionable statements and self promotion from the first day I came to office and now we're getting close to three years I would say doc where's al-Baghdadi I want al-Baghdadi and we would kill terrorist leaders but they were names I never heard of they would names it weren't recognizable and they weren't the big names some good won some important ones but they weren't the big name I kept saying where's Al Baghdadi and a couple of weeks ago they were able to scope amount you know these people are very smart than not into the use of cell phones more than not they're very technically brilliant you know they use the Internet better than almost anybody in the world perhaps other than Donald Trump but they use the Internet incredibly well and what they've done with the Internet through recruiting and everything and that's why he died like a dog he died like a coward he who is screaming and crying and frankly I think it's something that should be brought out so that his followers and all of these young kids WANNA leave various countries including the United States they should see how he died now Admiral S- Ravidas ah yeah we'll we'll see we'll get to the the strategic importance of what we get to but again just underlining un-american language and and the sound of tyrants again he died like a dog died like a coward upbringing screaming it's just can you please explain to maybe three of Donald Trump supporters who fist when they hear that the downside of that ny the forty four American presidents who preceded him did not talk about casualties on the ward even if they were the most heinous casualties like Osama bin Laden are are are you name it or Japanese opponents at war are not cease why we we didn't talk that way or Qaddafi in Libya for example In every case Joe the problem here is there's is that internal desire to kind of take victory lap but it's counterproductive it comes across as unprofessional it's spiking the ball in the end zone and here's the real problem it's motivational for the other side make an argument that it's a deterrent I don't think so I think that that tape will be played particularly that image of the dog in the Arab world is well known as as an extremely negative and that'll become a recruiting tool that the Islamic state uses on the Internet and for the record I'd say they're better than Donald Trump there managing apparently to conduct a global operations without owning a shred of territory in Easter after we took away the caliphate from them which was another good accomplishment they still conducted a massive attack in Sri Lanka using the Internet to recruit proselytizing conduct the operation they will use this footage to motivate their followers to recruit more. It's really not how we WANNA play the Yes it is it is actually a much smaller level it's what you call basically press clippings from from locker from for locker uh-huh where somebody on the other side said something you cut out the press clippings you put it up and you used to inspire other people in something we don't want here let's let's let's let's go Richard Haass go to and talk about the impact of the death and we'll we'll get into some of the other things I obviously I remember us being celebrating at least most Americans Saar cow was killed I believe it was in two thousand six two thousand seven thinking that the guy that really was the inspiration for Isis and of course that just lead to more silence splinter groups we of course all celebrated we had our on the deck of the Missouri moment a little bit when Osama bin Laden was killed and two thousand eleven we're all cheering but of course out of that came the rise of Isis and so I'm wondering it's we see very important death but do we make the same one man is going to end the movement that he was so successful in spreading the short answer is yes there's no such thing as decapitation when comes to dealing with terrorists because whether you call them networks of movements they're not narrow organizations that are highly structured we're getting rid of the leadership essentially Abel's all the fighters they'll they'll reform they may splinter and so forth decentralisation there in formality in some ways is is a degree of strain so I think we've got to keep the accomplishment as meaningful as it is in perspective and more important justice important you've got to take steps back and say are we putting ourselves in a position where we can do this sort of thing again and again as we will need to do and there I think the jury's out or you've got to say it's going to become much more difficult we're not gonNA have the forces on the ground collecting the intelligence we're not gonNA have partners like the Syrian Kurds and other Kurds doing so much there's still questions about the willingness of this administration to work closely with its own intelligence community so again yesterday was an important day but we shouldn't exaggerate it and I'm really worried about going forward whether we're going to be able to repeat this because we're going

"We're going to conclude the three part series looking at commandos in films of the Nineteen Eighties did Predator commando following that of course those were. I guess they were Green Beret movies this when going to be taking off in a little bit different direction for an Army Special Forces unit called the Delta Force the Delta Force is a film from Nineteen eighty-six it stars Chuck Norris. It's PG thirteen rated film. It does have strong violence and some language. The run time is two hours and five minutes. Lee Marvin gets a CO starring Credit Robert Forester George Kennedy Martin Balsam Joey Bishop Laney Kazan posts Vinson Robert Vaughn and shelley winters are also in the film. The director is Menahem Golan who also writes the screenplay along with James Brunner now originally the Delta forest which is the name of the Special Forces commando unit that specifically tasked asked with dealing with combating international terrorists and also hostage situations this was going to be a film that featured both Chuck Norris and another heavyweight for for Cannon Films Charles Bronson. They were GONNA start together. Joseph Zito who had made one of the Canon Group's most successful films at the box office today that was missing in action which also also featured Chuck Norris. He was going to be the director now. Norris came up with these story idea while he was making missy an action he had started becoming frustrated aided that the United States was becoming ineffectual in its response to terrorism from the Middle East and that was making a sort of paper tiger there and he felt that that you know maybe rightly I guess in retrospect depending on your political point of view that it was only a matter of time that terrorism would end up surfacing in the free and Open Society of the the United States if it wasn't taken care of with a lot of force now now for Chuck Norris who signed onto the film for the healthy some of two million dollars the Delta Delta force would end up marking the first time that he would be in a film with an unsolvable of respected Oscar winning and Oscar nominated character actors all all around him it was meant as a vehicle that was going to cross norris over from making really pure action movies to a little bit more mainstream efforts a lot like clint in East woodhead done in the nineteen seventies however there was a delay in the production for several months there was unrest in the Middle East that was kicking up at the time and and that made filming in Israel which is where a lot of the action here is set. Even though it has different locales. It was all shot in Israel. It was pretty risky to shoot there so there was an interim period where veteran actor. Lee Marvin ended up having to come in. He was replacing Charles Bronson because during that time Charles Bronson had begun working on another acting commitment that he had made in order to appear in a movie that was being made for HBO called Active Vengeance so here playing Delta Force leader Nick Alexander Under this would be Lee Marvin's final film role he would die not too long after shooting the Delta Force Joseph Zito would also ended up dropping out of the production action and that brought in producer and the Co writer of the film Menahem Golan. He would step in himself into the director's chair. Now zito would end up getting to do his own version of of a Delta Force film in the year two thousand much later with an unrelated film called Delta Force One that film happened to star the Son of Chuck Norris Mike who also Oh happen to co star in one of the sequels to Delta Force Nineteen ninety-one Delta Force three and he was playing a different character there than the one he did in Delta Force One if you're a norris family fan I guess you gotta catch all of these. The opening sequence of the film does take inspiration from the real life. US ordered military operation Asian called Operation Eagle Claw. It was a podcast attempt by America's Delta Force to rescue in helicopters the fifty three hostages that were in the American embassy in Tehran in nineteen eighty. This film puts a lot of the blame in this reenactment on decisions made by government bureaucrats who know very little. It'll about tactical operations. The rest of the film is based mostly around this also real life event that happened in June of nineteen eighty five it was the hijacking of TWA flight. I eight forty seven. The name of the airline for the film has changed to a T. W. Can travel ways. TWA Flight Eight forty seven was the first such hijacking to occur in the middle released in about fifteen years so it was very news worthy at the time. A lot of what you see in the film is relatively faithful to some of those real life events. You had a terrorist group hijacking the airplane playing containing mostly Americans that was going from Athens to roam the ended up forcing it to land in an airport in Beirut. The Jewish passengers were separated from the rest. The terrorists had help from a German flight attendant who reluctantly looked through passport to try to determine which of the names were Jewish the tragic fate of a US Navy diver who was a passenger aboard is also accurately portrayed in the Delta force however for all of that this is Hollywood and asses need to be kicked in in real life. The hostages were released by the terrorists over the course of a few weeks. Israel complied with a demand to release seven hundred Shia prisoners at that time and and most of the hijackers ended up getting away because they had scattered hostages to different places around Beirut and that thwarted any form of concentrated rescue attempt that was is going to be made the Operation Eagle Claw beginning of the film was also conceived of as the entire plot of the film that was going to be the entire film but cannon didn't think that it it was going to sell if it didn't have an uplifting ending so they set about working on a Delta Force mission that Americans would cheer on they were also willing to change Operation Eagle Claw to have happy ending if you can believe that they wanted the mission to be one in which Delta force would actually succeed in their mission now the change toward Gordon entirely fantasy land scenario caused the founder of the Real Delta Force Charles Alvin Beckwith to walk away from his role as a consultant into the film in the end the makers of the Delta Force opted to Portray Eagle Claw as a tragedy in this preamble to the hijacking story in which they were going to tack back on the optimistic but fabricated action packed ending they were gonNA place that they're in order to give American audiences something to root for now in addition to taking events from the nineteen eighty-five hijacking of TWA Flight Menahem Golan also drew inspiration from this film he had done before the Oscar nominated nineteen seventy seven film Operation Thunderbolt under bolt that was also based on actual events that happened in nineteen seventy six where Israeli commandos secured the release of Jewish hostages from a flight hijacked act from Palestinian terrorists in an airport in Uganda. Now this fictionalized film version delivers a typical Hollywood therapy of of these harrowing events you know Very Mila dramatic in the way that it's depicted in the first half in the final half of the film that starts to imagine calling the Americans pins in the form of the Delta Force who proceed to dismantle this operation and to give the terrorists the kind of proper come up and that seems to only happen at the end of her roic back and ultra patriotic action movies like this the film's ending has all of the passengers singing America the beautiful with all of them knowing the words to the song despite only early some of them being from the United States. This is wish fulfilment at it's finest and from that standpoint it's the kind of film that seems to have been extracted from Ronald. Donald Reagan's wettest of dreams now Golan's film here is the result of having to notions of what the film should be one half is the serious melodrama that occurs for the passengers of of the eighty w flight who've now find themselves as hostages while obviously all of that is still a bit stagey from a narrative standpoint these scenes do who provide a sombre and grounded approach seems particularly incongruous with the second half of the film in which Delta Force proceeds to come in with guns ablaze kicking ask and taking names all accompanied by Alan Silvestri repetitive but admittedly catchy score that was meant to evoke pomp and patriotism by the way that that score which I played as the intro to this particular podcast episode it would later be used by ABC sports on television nine hundred eighty s and throughout most of the nineteen nineties these to introduce the broadcasts of the Indianapolis five hundred the main thrust of the story here.
