"Sometimes that happens. Yeah, this is and this is a different part of the story buddy. We are getting into a twist in the tail, so we we, we do not stand an unsafe sex participants knows. The unsafe sex with people. You don't know Fam-. Where do we don't know when jacket team a got HIV, but we absolutely know that getting. It did not cause him to start using condoms because he gave it to his girlfriend without telling her that he was. He later recalled that he explained he thought he was immune to the disease. Because it his words in his words Danell he had super blood. What what are? One more, time. Here Super Blood! He had super blood. Wanted to hear you say it again now. Again as we're getting into this point. Jacket Dima has seemed like a is definitely a con artist. The stuff that came out about him APP later in his life. He suspected there was also. A either mental illness as a result of just like he, he he was, he got sick, or because of his constant drug abuse damaged. It is unclear. What happens like yeah, there's a lot about jacket. Dima like what what what his girlfriend's reports revealed. Is this just a lot about jacket? Dima? We don't know I up. Until I started reading her accounts of him I thought he was just a standard Griffin. And now there's apartment that's like he may have actually been ill outside of the HIV. It is very hard to say so But this is the part at which things get moderately less fun because his very last girlfriend Penny Lisi contracting HIV from Jack and given that she did. It's almost guaranteed that God knows how many other people got HIV from this guy. Because again he would throw days long cocaine and liquor or benders while he was in Mexico and before while he was in Afghanistan, and he probably had HIV for a large chunk of that time, so he gets so many people sick he's this is a guy who does nothing, but leave shattered lives in his wake. Now! That girlfriend penny. Alesi wrote a blog post about what Jack did to her, and it's honestly heartbreaking, and I am going to read a quote from it now a long ones. We'll have to pause a couple of times in this. Not? HIV drugs or being a hooker. I got it the way a lot of women I was in love and stupid period, and because of love and stupidity, my life will never be the same whatever is left of it, so the story is not for profit. It is for peace of mind, and so that when I meet my maker. I will no I. Did all I could to stop this monster jacket? Dima has a lot more sense than just giving out HIV I am as concerned about other people being sick as I am about dying, the other stuff will come out eventually all though I'm sure we'll be around long enough to see it so yes. Yes I am mad very mad. Sad as well now. She claims that Jack started their relationship by flirting with her online while he was locked in prison in Afghanistan. which is again, you'll notice the last time he was in prison. He also exited with with a woman. He had been flirting with remotely Yes, yeah, yeah, so he used her to take care of business. He needed done in the. United States when he got out of prison because he couldn't reenter the country, and he also relied on her to take care of his dog when he went off doing whatever the fuck jacket Dima did when he wasn't taking care of his dog, he also. Serve A dog. Doesn't I would like to back and so. Does not deserve a dog does not. Yeah, so she was like the last person to know Jack Well, and it is from penny that we get some of our final big revelations about Jackie Dima. Quote. Jack always told me he was a heterosexual. And when I finally found out the truth, it was too late now I also know that he was bisexual years ago. A Green Beret who was stationed at Fort Bragg has come forward and told me of his meeting Jonathan Keith DNA. As he called himself back then he met him Eddie Newsstand located on Brag Boulevard in Fayetteville North Carolina in early, two, thousand, two, thousand one. They would have sex in a back room. He also went to four fifty robots and street and. And had sex with jackets apartment next to his office in that building to there have also come forward. Jack was also into crossdressing secretly than to as well as having his Amos penetrated by dildos. He never used condoms. Then he occasionally does, but the damage is already there. The disease has progressed, have also been told about his encounters with men when he was in prison in Kabul Afghanistan, apparently Thursday nights their war for man sex. I wish to God. He had told me this himself when I first met him. So. I don't know how true that is. but jack definitely had HIV which progressed to full blown AIDS, and it definitely seems credible that he was just fucking a bunch of people, his entire life, and never taking any care about the fact that he was spreading diseases to them I think that it's possible. Penny has some weird homophobia stuff, although it's unclear from her writing, but it also seems really credible that this Guy Jackie was just fucking people in spreading diseases entire life without a Goddamn care in the world That's that's cool. That's a cool story. Jack was accused of rape at least once in two thousand ten by a young woman who visited his home, he temporarily fled to Belize to escape justice, but returned to Mexico and was unmolested by the law until his death in January, two thousand twelve as a result of AIDS. So. That's how this story ends. Robert Young Pelton somewhat legendary war. Correspondent is the reporter who wrote most about Jacket Dima without falling for his bullshit and I found an article written after Jack's death in mcclatchy by pelted, or that quotes both Pelton and penny. And it provides some final explanations for how Jack Got Away with his schemes for so long. He would meet somebody that he needed or wanted to be like like the author Robin Moore and then he would absorb all their mannerisms words in the way they dressed Pelton said it worked in part because he was highly intelligent. Few Con Artists could worm their way into helping more the author of the Green Berets, write a book, and few could come up with such strong legal arguments for so many spurious causes. He said indeed lessee. His former girlfriend said Edina wrote nearly all of the legal filings he was involved with over the years I know because I sat there and watched him. Then the lawyers would just sign off on them. So. At the end of this I don't know what to fucking make this dude other than that. He was a monster and after but it is very hard for me to tell how much of this was like a coldly calculated piece of shit, and how much of this was like? Just a damaged ill man, compulsively bay possibly based on the fact that he actually had delusions like fucking. Shit I really don't know where to land on this guy other than that? He's a monster right, but that's the story of Jack. Dima sounds like a piece of garbage A. war obsessed piece of trash who did not participate in safe sex and has ruined the lives of. Probably hundreds of people at this point Oh God. Yeah, there are so many like poor young men, and if we're honest, probably kids who I am fucking certain got sick because Jackie, Dima you know, contracted their services as sex workers, and then just rolled on with his life, she. It's like it's actually if you imagine that this guy is, it seems likely he was just spreading HIV around Afghans sex worker population for a couple of years like there's no telling how many people got sick as a result of him, wh- on undoubtedly way too many. Yeah, Dan that's cool. That's a cool story. Another bastard in the bag. Yep another. Bastard in the bank. So, Dan. Yes. You feel in. You. Know Not Great not great. Would you feel better to know that? Prior to the two thousand and one invasion of Afghanistan had one of the lowest rates of HIV infections in the world, and that after the war, they had skyrocketing AIDS crisis. No. It doesn't that doesn't.

"Night around midnight. I heard the screams of four people. They didn't poured very cold water on me. I tried to keep myself from screaming but couldn't then. They played loud strange music than they prevented me from going to the bathroom terrible situation. I was hooded for twelve days cheese. Christ the trail also brought up evidence that did seem somewhat exculpatory for Jack and his men. Us military authorities repeatedly admitted under questioning that they had been aware of. Jack's taskforce and some evidence emerged that a and his men may have thwarted an assassination attempt against the Afghan Education Minister But again it's impossible to say what the fuck actually happened here and this is made more complicated by the fact that the FBI apparently took a bunch of documents and tapes from Divas home after his arrest and then withheld them from defense lawyers. This is peculiar because the F. FBI should not have had any jurisdiction in an Afghan court case and this is all complicated by the fact that it happened in fucking Afghanistan eight country with an enormous amount of government corruption and huge numbers of officials. Who were straight up on the take? I have read a lot of articles about this and I have no idea conclusively about what went down but looking at the life of Jack Emma on the whole I do think it is safe to say that task force sabre seven with some sort of gripped the vast majority if not the entirety of the people that he went after targeted and tortured. Were completely innocent. And he deserved the sentence that he received which was ten years in Afghan prison. They Mensa the judge that he tortured said him to. Princess just loved the judge whom he tortured sentenced now. They're journalists who visited him while he was in jail and they all newt kind of bemusedly that he was very popular with his guards and managed to get himself and his men into a luxury sell with carpet satellite television and a private bathroom like a kitchen and all sorts of Nice stuff and there was like well. It's like that's what these journalists say and the interest them he gave the money he has money. He paid it to them. Like I liked that I liked the things included in the description. Is it had carpet? Yeah Shit Man. Prison carpet ain't the worst prison. So Jack was released in two thousand seven and quite wisely decided he could never return home to the United States And again he was released like seven years early probably bribery but it was through apart. And who the fuck knows. Maybe it was something to please the Defense Department either way. As soon as he gets out of Afghanistan he knows that he absolutely cannot go home to the United States because he still has wire fraud warrants out for his arrested North Carolina and there were pending federal charges. For All of the crimes he'd committed in Afghanistan when he was torturing people so instead he went to buy an attempted to set up a drug and arms smuggling syndicate. This failed and so jacket. Dima headed to the last refuge of all true drifters Mexico Mexico. Yeah baby it is. Fuck I love. How often episodes of the show end in? Mexico is such a treat whenever we get to Mexico so jet fought above and started running a charter boat service for tourists. He called himself Captain Black Jack and patterned his personality. After Captain Jack Sparrow. Few might say there has been a degradation from his his time as a terrorism expert. So now he's doing booze cruises. And pretending to be Jack Sparrow. He built a home in in Imitation. Middle Eastern Style and was said to relax. They're in a job which is like the long gown that men and parts of the Middle East where his ex-girlfriend claims that he would regularly go on Multiday. Vodka and cocaine sue soaked. Binges while looping either Arabic music the apocalypse now soundtrack or just playing. Louis Armstrong's what a wonderful world on repeat for hours. Hell yeah after. Yeah at some point. Daniel Jackie Dima caught HIV possibly due to the fact that he had constant casual sex with strangers and never ever used protection. What sometimes that happens. Yeah this is. And this is a different part of the story buddy. We are getting into a twist in the tale so we we. We do not stand an unsafe. Sex participants safe sex with people.

"Bit about the story where it's like this guy with no evidence claims he was working for six and maybe he was all of these guys make claims to having worked for like six the CIA the Defense Department or something like that and almost all of them actually did to some extent Because here's here's the thing about the start of the war in Afghanistan so number one by the time like we invaded Afghanistan. The State Department had about three hundred and forty million dollars in bounties out for the top thirty terrorism suspects worldwide so there were tens of millions of dollars out for dudes who could capture al-Qaeda motherfuckers or Taliban motherfuckers. Tens of millions of these bounties. Were paid off so there that kind of money going out but there was also the military's of multiple nations were active in Afghanistan and none of them knew a God. Damn thing about Afghanistan so anyone who could come in and make a good pitch about how they could gather useful Intel or do something else that was necessary Head of good chance of making tens of millions of dollars because again the like the coalition was just shitting cash into the open mouths if anyone who could credibly claim to be fighting terrorism and no one knew anything like it was like it was a wild west at that point right in terms of the the counterterrorism industry so you could just roll in the country and if you looked right and talked you could suddenly have fucking CIA dollars like flowing down your fucking mouth It was it was a fun time. Legal Fun time. Yeah so for for a few years. Afghanistan was a grafter paradise. And no-one exploited it more entertainingly than Jack Dima Jonathan Keith. Adina was born in Nineteen fifty-six in Poughkeepsie New York his were upper middle class and doting Jonathan was their only son. His father was a former marine and a veteran of the Second World War. Jonathan grew up beloved and worshiped and surrounded by the sort of comfort and care that few children are fortunate enough to enjoy when he was twelve years old. He watched the John Wayne Classic. The Green Berets. Have you seen that movie? Danell actually have not seen a green berets side side note. Can I put it in a request to the fans? If anybody wants to Remix the gangster's paradise by Coolio and do drifters paradise please? There we go on twitter. Yeah yeah make it happen also shouted the city of Poughkeepsie. I I've I've heard of POW. Keep see but a pick. How keeps idle Poughkeepsie? A little more familiar with shadow missed him yesterday. Called beyond say aon say the highlight of off. Honestly I'm always a fan came after you for GOP as well. That was a really funny. I love blue. Mmediately TAX J loft over recording and said. Guess what. Guess what about it for two days? It's wonderful I. I am so angry right now. Mostly I M angry. At the way the state of New York names towns. That is completely fair. Yeah I it's wrong and I don't think we should lean into that anymore. So agreed agreed. You're you're on blast New York more main mainland name so the movie. The Green Berets was kind of the first movie about Special Forces like now. There's like a fucking ton of those movies. It's like in every action movie. Heroes gotTa have some sort of special forces background but like this was the first time special forces were kind of new in Vietnam like the idea that you have. These dudes and the Green Berets was a movie about them and It was A very a big hit And it became John Edina Adidas very favorite movie as a little boy and seeing this film convinced him to give up his earlier dreams of being veterinarian and instead join the military and become a green beret himself. He enlisted as soon as he was able to do. So in nineteen seventy five but tragically. He was too late to fight and maybe die in Vietnam but he did well enough on his entrance tests that he qualified for the Special Forces. He was helped in this. By the fact that the post Vietnam special forces had endured a serious manpower shortage since new recruits had been scared off from joining for some inexplicable reason. Jonathan was accepted even though he had bad eyesight he did a three year active duty term as a radio operator and a weapons specialist and then spent some time in the reserves reaching the rank of staff sergeant before being discharged in Nineteen eighty-four. One of the difficulties here is that even among credible sources descriptions of Jackie deem time in the military very widely This paragraph from a rolling stone article on the man is probably close to accurate. As you're going to get a story about this con- man's military career. Though a demons military record reflects qualification as a pistol expert and badges awarded for scuba and parachute training. There are no indications that he ever heard a shot fired in anger while he was in the military. Moreover Nineteen ninety-four North Carolina probation report quotes a military evaluator describing deem as the most UNIM- motivated. Unprofessional immature enlisted man. I have ever known. In a letter of reprimand. Cited deem as gross immaturity characterized by rationality and a tendency towards violence. The reprimand came after a Dima attempted to attack a senior commanding officer so Jack Edina is in the special forces but you would not call him like he's not. He's not good at it. I mean if he's attacking his officer you can't come on. Man. There were very few rules. Vietnam there were like nobody wanted to be in the military. It was a real shit. Show go now while he was still in the reserves Jonathan Which is the name. He's still went by at the time. Spent several miss year aimless years wandering around the small town in New York he lived in Who Pronounces the name of their town wrong? Because they're jerks just kind of trying to figure out what to do with his life. Seapaul John had ever wanted to do was fight in a foreign war but the occurred years of relative peace after Vietnam made that almost an impossible impossibility eventually settled on away to still do cool looking army type stuff without actually serving in the military. He founded a counterterrorism training school. In the town of Red Hook now John had no real qualifications to do this other than the fact that he'd been very bad at being the special forces The exact extent of his work is unclear. Journalists eventually confirmed that he trained guards to protect the. Us government facilities in Haiti and did some amount of like vaguely described work for the Thai military. The President Son Ron Reagan. Junior used as facilities at some point and I. We don't really have a clear idea as to why and training people in vague counterterrorism techniques was John Zone the activity during this period. He was also breaking the law constantly in nineteen eighty two. He was arrested for possession. Stolen property in one thousand nine hundred sixty was charged with resisting arrest and assault with attempt to physically harm. He received nineteen eighty eight arrest for disorderly conduct in nineteen ninety arrests for assault involving discharging. A firearm he was never convicted for any of these crimes. And we don't really know what happened but you couldn't stop this dude from getting arrested so you can it? Go go go off. Go off just you know. Live your truth get arrested. This is clearly going to end in some fantastical manner so every move is just like. I'm supporting it all the way up. I mean it. It ends in Mexico which I think we all know in our hearts but I can't say if Jonathan was good or not it actually training people in counterterrorism but he was terrible at running such a business legally his camp generated numerous noise complaints and was eventually shut down over a zoning violation. Edina move next to Fayetteville North Carolina. A location he picked for its proximity to Special Forces headquarters near Fort Bragg now rather than selling terrorism training this time he instead set up store dedicated to selling nonlethal military equipment and a business running a series of special operations trade shows. It proved good at getting different manufacturers on board and filling big rooms with fancy military equipment and people who wanted to look at it. Now some of these people were actually special forces veterans or members of the Defense Department but most of the people who showed up to these trade shows were soldier of fortune readers. There guys wanted to like look at guns and stuff. Yeah so so great episode. Thank you thank you. And Great Magazine fully unproblematic magazine. So tell you something. When I had to battle that seal underwater I used my knife fighting techniques that I learned in the underwater night fighting techniques section of soldier of Fortune. That's the after me and I needed to defend myself for the listeners. I'm absolutely kidding. I have never heard in my life when I went up with Danell you. We don't need to lie. Seals are a threat and the only way to deal with them as underwater knife fighting. I am I focus always on practical prepping and so like you WanNa have some extra food you want to know how to deal with like a bleeding wound had like stanch blood flow. And you need to know how to beat a seal in a knife fight. Those are those are basic practical steps. We can alternate love it so speaking of practical steps so the reality of the situation is that Jonah Dima used his connections that he built in his counterterrorism training school to like fill up convention rooms with cool military gear and people would pay to go gawk at it. And you know I it was. It was a decent business. That's the reality of what happened. Now Jonah Dima would go on however to speak about this Somewhat differently He would claim in the future that after leaving the army he worked as a US military advisor in El Salvador and Honduras. There's no evidence for this. He claimed he worked as part of a special mission. Unit and refused ever elaborate as to what that job entailed no record. Support any of this Record support that he did anything but fail to run a training center and then lead a bunch of nerds Through a fucking convention center and when confronted with the fact that there is no evidence of him doing all this bad special op stuff. He would tell journalists that the records of his actual military service where secret records which he described as the ones that they don't want to give anyone which is really really handy so the trade shows that John Ran Generated enough interest from legitimate experts. That Dima eventually met up with a subcontractor who is able to get him a real job training real cops in the former Soviet republic of Lithuania who we all knew no is like the king of doing a good background check on a guy. That's what that's what I hear one. Lithuania yeah what you know what else I hear I hear. The trade shows are great places.

"Bring Three Geiger counters now. He had a reason for that I. Mean Okay Fair. The my Gosh, there's yeah he's. He claimed that he was his cover was that he was a private investigators studying the illegal uranium trade and that he was gonNA. Use the geiger counters to help him bluer in a legal uranium buyers or something like that it never really made much sense. This is this is truly. This is i. mean you know all these guys are heroes? Yeah, speaking of heroes former. British Special Air Service. Soldier Colin Berry. Was the smartest of all these drifters? Except for the guy we're about to talk about. He traveled to Afghanistan under the cover of working on housing projects for an engineering firm, and this seems to have been. been as a way to hide his activities trying to ride Intel for 'EM I. Six who claims approached him for aid and May. In fact, have done so in any case time as a secret agent in Afghanistan came to an end when he shot to random Afghan, citizens to death in a hotel bar in Kabul. He was jailed for murder now. That little bit about the story where it's like this guy with no evidence claims he was working for. Am I six and maybe he was all of these guys make claims to having worked for like six the C. I. A. The defense, Department or something like that and. Almost all of them actually did to some extent because. Here's here's the thing about the start of the war in Afghanistan so number one by the time like we invaded. Afghanistan the State Department had about three hundred and forty million dollars in bounties out for the top thirty. Terrorism suspects worldwide, so there were tens of millions of dollars out for dudes who could capture al-Qaeda, motherfuckers or Taliban motherfuckers. Tens of millions of these bounties were paid off. So there's that kind of money going out, but there was also the military's of multiple nations were active in Afghanistan, and none of them knew a God damn thing about Afghanistan so anyone who could come in and make a good pitch about how they could gather useful intel or do something else. That was necessary, head of good chance of making tens of millions of dollars because. Because again, the like the coalition was just shitting cash into the open mouths. If anyone who could credibly claim to be fighting terrorism, and no one knew anything like it was like it was a wild west at that point, right in terms of the the counterterrorism industry, so you could just roll in the country, and if you looked right and talked, you could suddenly have fucking CIA dollars like flowing down your fucking mouth It was. It was a fun time. Legal, fun time, yeah, so for for a few years Afghanistan was a grafter. Paradise and no-one exploited it more entertainingly than Jack Dima. Jonathan Keith Edina was born in Nineteen fifty-six in Poughkeepsie New York his were upper, middle class and doting. Jonathan was their only son. His father was a former marine and a veteran of the Second World War Jonathan grew up beloved and worshiped and surrounded by the sort of comfort and care that few children are fortunate enough to enjoy. When he was twelve years old, he watched the John. Wayne Classic the Green. Berets have you seen that movie Danell actually have not seen a green berets side side note can I put it in a request to the fans. If anybody wants to Remix the gangster's paradise by Coolio and do drifters paradise, please there we go on twitter. Yeah, yeah, make it happen. Also shouted the city of Poughkeepsie I've I've I've heard of POW. Keep see but a pick. How keep see idol? poughkeepsie, a little more familiar with shadow. Missed him. Yesterday called beyond beyond say. The highlight of off. Honestly I'm always a fan came after you for GOP as well. That was a really funny. I love blue. MMEDIATELY TAX J loft over recording, and said guess what guess what? About it for two days it's wonderful I. I am so angry right now. Mostly. I am angry at the way the state of New York names. That is completely fair. Yeah, I, it's wrong and I don't think we should lean into that anymore. So agreed agreed you're you'RE ON BLAST NEW YORK? More main mainland name so the movie. The Green Berets was kind of the first movie about Special Forces like now. There's like a fucking ton of those movies. It's like in every action. Movie Heroes GotTa have some sort of special forces background, but like this was the first time. Special Forces were kind of new. In Vietnam like the idea that you have these dudes and the Green Berets was a movie about them and It was a very a big hit and it became John Edina Adidas very favorite movie as a little boy, and seeing this film convinced him to give up his earlier dreams of being veterinarian, and instead join the military and become a green beret himself. He enlisted as soon as he was able to do so in nineteen seventy five, but tragically he was too late to fight and maybe die in Vietnam. But he did well enough on his entrance tests that he qualified for the Special Forces. He was helped in this by the fact that the post Vietnam special forces had endured a serious manpower shortage since new recruits had been scared off from joining for some inexplicable reason, Jonathan was accepted even though he had bad eyesight, he did a three year active duty term as a radio operator and a weapons. Weapons specialist, and then spent some time in the reserves reaching the rank of staff sergeant before being discharged in Nineteen eighty-four. One of the difficulties here is that even among credible sources descriptions of Jackie deem time in the military very widely this paragraph from a rolling stone article on the man is probably close to accurate as you're going to get a story about this con- man's military career. Though a demons, military record reflects qualification as a pistol, expert and badges awarded for scuba and parachute training. There are no indications that he ever heard. A shot fired in anger while he was in the Military Moreover Nineteen ninety-four North Carolina probation report quotes a military evaluator describing deem as the most UNIM-, motivated, unprofessional, immature enlisted man, I have ever known in a letter of reprimand cited deem as gross immaturity characterized by rationality and a tendency towards violence. The reprimand came after a Dima attempted to attack a senior commanding officer. So. Jack Edina is in the special forces, but you would not call him like he's not. He's not good at it. I mean if he's attacking his officer, you can't. Come on man. There were very few rules right after Vietnam. There were like nobody wanted to be in the military. It was a real shit show. Go now while he was still in the reserves Jonathan which is the name he's still went by at the time spent several miss year, aimless years wandering around the small town in New York. He lived in who pronounces the name of their town wrong because they're jerks. Just kind of trying to figure out what to do with his life seapaul John had ever wanted to do was fight in a foreign war, but the occurred years of relative peace after Vietnam made that almost an impossible impossibility, eventually Jonathan settled away to still do cool looking army type stuff without actually serving in the military. He founded a counterterrorism training school in the town of Red.
