Fresh update on "saddam " discussed on Monocle 24: The Foreign Desk
"Muqtada Al Sadr was not a candidate for office himself in this election. He has long preferred to exercise his considerable power from the shadows. For a look at his journey to this point, I'm joined now by Jane ariff Baghdad bureau chief for The New York Times. Jane, let's begin with Muqtada Al Sadr's origin story. How did he become a figure in Iraqi politics in the first place? First of all, I guess I'd say he was born. It's the family he was born into really. He comes from a revered Shia family. And in 1999, his father, the grand Ayatollah. Muhammad Sutter. Was assassinated, along with his two elder brothers. So that left to the who was then in his 20s, basically to carry on the family's legacy. A 1999, of course, was when Saddam Hussein was still around. And his father was in the mosques. He was preaching, demanding, religious freedom, criticizing Saddam Hussein. And when he was executed, there was a huge uproar, and she and neighborhoods in Baghdad and across the south. So already you have a guy who comes from a place of considerable power and importance just by virtue of the fact that he came from that family. He became a well-known figure not just in Iraq, but also globally during the Civil War, which followed the United States invasion in 2003. How clearly do we now understand the role that he played? This was, of course, the time when the huge she enabled of Baghdad formally known as Saddam city was rechristened sadia city and was regarded with some trepidation even by the most heavily armed foreign troops. So in 2003 comes around and Saddam Hussein is toppled. And it's a whole new ball game. All these Iraqi exiles come from outside. They come from Iran. They come from London, and they're basically shepherded for the most part by the United States and the U.S. Military. And here is mutual Sutter, who has remained in Iraq and is even then an Iraqi nationalist. I spoke to a diplomat former diplomat and they'll be able to who was in Baghdad in 2003. And he said he was approached by Sutter officials, basically chief advisers. Libya fury speaks Arabic. So he said they approached him because they knew him from TV. And they said to Sutter, say Muppet, and say it is a descendant of the prophet Muhammad. Would like to be involved in this governing council that you're developing. He wants to be part of this new Iraq. And according to mister hori, the existing members of the council to be Ahmed chel Abbey and others said, no, no way that's a bad idea. And the U.S. followed his advice. So now to the setter is on the outside and as the American invasion turns into an occupation. He forms the Mahdi army. This is a militia that takes on U.S. troops. And although it's not well equipped and really badly trained, they posed a serious threat to the U.S. Army in Baghdad in Najaf in other places. And that was the theme for a few years until we get to the sectarian war where the Mahdi army is still around, even stronger. And it's blamed for fueling a large part of the sectarian fighting. So mocked it as Sutter says all the troops weren't under his control. There was a splinter group that broke away..

American Could Only Have Controlled Afghanistan if We Installed a Dictator
"If you wanted to retain control of afghanistan. Eric it's like retaining control of rikers island. You'd need a thought. We would have had to appoint a military dictator there who would have enforced rule harshly the way the president of egypt had to do when he overthrew the muslim brotherhood. We would have had to put an a dictator who was willing to crack. Heads shoot people and it would have embarrassed america and certainly not something by would have done. There is no humane way to rule a place like afghanistan. You will either have an islamist dictatorship like taliban or you will have a secular dictatorship along the lines of qaddafi or saddam hussein or assad in syria so thick that the option of a multi cultural pro transgender jemma critic feminist regime in the middle east is not on the table. It never what okay. What about british style colonialism. Another words they were not Pro transgender they were not flying rainbow flags over the embassies. Wh- because there's a fourth option right.

America is not strong enough to control a country like afghanistan. We can't enforce order in the streets of baltimore maryland. It'd be like britain trying to have an empire right

But it must seldom apart. He started the beazley's we had one overriding aim and that was we observed the each of the oem's that we worked for each of the de la group should each of the dealers spent almost all of their marketing and advertising spend on attracting new customers. So the brand building or attracting nukus mr to buy new cars and they spent very little money on holly any of their attention on retaining the customers. It already sold to who knew them liked them.

Eureka O'Hara: The Drag Race All Stars Season 6 Winner
"So you've talked before. About how before drag race you lived as a trans woman for five years and then you decided that that's or you realize that's not actually who you are. Can you just talk about your early experience gender and what led you to think that you might be a trans woman. Oh yeah of. Course why i to reiterate into the versus me figuring out that i'm not. I think it was more of like discovering that. I'm like all of these things you know what i'm saying. Expansion the weirdly. Like i think the trans person that i was is a huge part of who i am now. It's just like a more elevated self perception and then also like some description as far as like gender goes that's where gender neutrality i think comes in right. I just remember growing up. Well i i grew up with all women. So four women I remember being younger. And like the little gameboy and we always like wanted to be a girl. Because it'd be easier. I think we'll have those thoughts a little bit at some point in our life like oh like dealing with the persecution of it or likes negatively or like the self inflicted ideas that we put on ourselves because of other people's opinions we automatically assume that it's a bad thing and how much easier beats like. Just be a girl so then you could wear pretty and for things and you could like boys and you know all these things that you want. Do play with barbies etc. So that was kind of a star. I think and then i met a guy when i was like eighteen. Who was really interested in eureka and i clicked with him really well so then like i was already doing drag and i was living with a trans woman at the time so it just seems like so many factors of my mind mike. My thought process was adding up to this like okay. You're not leaving your authentic self. Maybe this is something you should discover and then the boy comes in. Because and i call him a boy because he turned out not to be a man. Okay reading like in allegra boswell sands so the boy was also there for like that. Validation i guess my having someone to support me through it because he was more interested in eureka. So that's why. I kind of brought that up because the thought process was more from like growing up and then living with the transvaal man and just having those ideas kind of for a long time anyway dating him he he really isn't do eureka. Your drag character and so it's like you're getting all the validation about the feminine side of noon that an interesting. It was interesting but it was like. I really liked him. You know and he was like the first time i ever had like had a guy that could consider like a real interested in mike relationship type situation and saddam was just like you know fell head over heels really quickly so i would have done just about anything but i was already thinking these things. I can't really say like. Oh well i did it. Because i met this guy no i had the quote unquote balls. Elevate or the lack thereof to push myself to do it. Because i had like this validation from the opposite sex or however you want to describe the gender of that situation. I don't know how would talk about that.

Need For Companion - burst 2
"To forehead. I can't go back. Need for companion. Don't start thinking or just talking about what you're going to do before you think about the other person who you say you must run the information through but ask yourself or did you have to do such for someone's approval companion his one of a pair things intended to complement or match each other. I just can't believe you have to make someone else more important with your decision. One all you must do is just make the choice to change if they try to talk you out of it what it knows right.

It does not need to be room just delayed. How do you respond. Control what the reaction's will be and the ants. No one can control what may or may not come. It is a divine intervention in operation for the results. If you're still not messing the hurt within yourself. The independence range into an era of solidarity within you and surroundings most would not think you're strong enough for now but you focus is being in personal touch of the heart and soul within a relationship.

TCEA '21: Vernon Wright
"This morning. Our kickoff guest We're very excited to welcome an entrepreneur speaker life coach consultant and a former educator of fifteen or so years Vernon right. welcome to the morning. Kickoff is so good to happier will good morning right from the great state of texas. But you know what. Here's what's really interesting to realize into. Think about what was a conference right that that originally started here in texas to see the worldwide impact and for me to be a part of this collective dialogue while just absolutely while so so privileged and so honored to be with you all this morning and You know just ready to go ahead and pour into the people. And i want to say this real quick isn't i don't want to break any rules. Andrew is it okay for me to drop a protest this early is it okay Hang on let me choose it okay. And we check. I think we're good taking all right. You'll take you take the hit for the team. Absolutely all right. Let mcglade dropped approach. Have for you guys here real quick. There is a word that really comes to mind for me in. It's the word convergence may say that one more time so if you're watching this right now welcome so glad to be with you all this morning. That word is convergence and you know talk about not only pedagogy but talk about tech and to talk about. Seal and talk about all of these other things you know what really we're faced with right now and and i say faced with really we're embarking on this great opportunity. Take a step back. Look through the lens of convergence. Where do all of these things come together. And just why did i mention that before. Andrew the word. Wow just absolutely while i love wow right i like glenn virgin says well you know it makes you think of like you know when we were chatting before we even started. We were talking about how you know decisions you make and everything you do has to be contextualised right. You have to understand the effects something. We'll have i think of when i think of convergence then it's kind of like their many different things out in the atmosphere but we can find those points where they come together where we can get like a you know a little bit greater value than than what something might have a loan and one of the things we discussed. Was this word as well value. What is valuable. What makes something valuable when we think about the challenges were facing as educators Wh-what where what. What kind of should we be looking for what what what to us should make something valuable. It's not just scarcity. You know because we know there's no shortage of knowledge and always being generated So that can't be how we define value has to be something more based on how effective or useful it is right. Yeah and you know great topic there and great question really for all of us to to think about to look through and so i will share this So grateful for the clients that i've worked with in my private coaching. One on one. And the school districts that i've done consulting with and i will share this with you. All one of the things that i share with them is really talking about exactly what you have mentioned. Which is this term value. And so that tends to be a little nebulous sometimes right. It tends to be a little vague. Like what is value. Vernon what is value andrew. In simply i say this and i share this value is when we help someone else achieve. What is important to them. Say that one more time value is when we help someone else achieve what is important to them because when we hope someone else achieve what is important to them. Guess what we have done where the we have helped them in the beginning of the process the middle of the process or the end of the process or maybe all the way through the process we have made an impact. And let me tell you something folks. We all want change right. We want substantive and sustained change. Those are the two s.'s. If we don't make an impact ever really done what we need to do to change Yeah i can imagine you know. There's the sense that sharing something Creates more of something right. I loan you a book. We don't actually have to make two copies of the book you've got your you can read it and i can read it By helping someone. You're just expanding you're just adding positively right Is that kind of when you look for things that that can sustain. Things that can have an impact How're you personally measuring that value. Yeah in so really for me and let me say this real quick again. What a wonderful conference Just thank you and major prostitute an idea because this really brings us to very much so in line andrew. I don't know how you're inside. Saddam my head andrew. But you're doing a great job of it thank you. That's why they got me here. Is that whether you got you here. All right well. I appreciate it man because it really brings up another word. And that's this concept of community and when we when i ask people through the various speaking engagements that i've done in a different clients that i've worked with again At the district level and those one on one in small groups. I've asked him what is community mean to you. And typically what will we naturally think about community especially pre pandemic. We would think that community is really those that are geographically around us right. Those that live in our neighborhood. Or maybe in our city or town but really community as a broader definition in community really. Is this concept of those that we choose really engage and interact with around shared values. So as we go through this conference this weekend really through the whole month of march really looking at the replays and and just really diving into it over and over right. I want you to think about this. Who are we in community with whoever we invited into our communities because that is a game changer once we connect with people in community. Guess what happens. We start to find out what's important to someone else and as we start to interact and we start to learn about people's stories. Guess what happens. We get the opportunity to invite people into our stories and to find out what's important to us once we have that foundation. Yes what happens. We are able to say to ourselves. This is what's valuable to this person. And once we find out what's valuable to someone and what something is is that is truly meaningful to them. Then we are able to add clarity to this concept of what is quote unquote of value.

But i'm sure we can expand a little bit someday. So thanks for joining me johnny. So your mom took care of your dad for many years tell me about your dad and your caregiving journey. Yes so my dad. Got fronted dimension when i was full team. Mac i mean we didn't know initially kinda very subtle onset sir some stuff assigns. Some sort of an ocd behavior and habits ejaculated needs to have sort of started coming in and we. We weren't really sure what is meant. Probably when i was seventeen means fooling diagnosed and definitely before at the age tom shanklin saddam was now twenty years ago so he had yes hunts and and then he had to mention until two years ago when he passed away and and the majority of that time he lived at home. My mum and it was just because my sister. Self we guns university on my other system rather Back ceremony on singlehandedly. Careful for him. Full probably nolan probably fifteen years until it's long time i mean as nearly law tougher laws on sarah and tools variants He was to be introspective scare him. You're amazing awesome. But even then i mean did doesn't end full primary care as you know grown same every single day. She still you know she can go on holiday. She just went down and look at the data. even she wasn't enough to all the time she loves him. Most of the to worry. Also vistas right in terms of you always concerned a well-being the and worrying if it comes to bowl of marrying a happy state of mind and that's all still there. Yeah so that was. Conical happens is really back about seeing my mum's dedication. How tough was even though. She handled it incredibly news so stoic. Yeah it was. That serve inspired this inside this expedition. Maturity stop so. How's she doing now. she's doing well. Yeah crazy agree raw. She's she goes now. I'd say sure exactly now so that it was To two hundred years ago died. Since then i guess she suggested completely to new life. Ace i suppose the even though she's a stephanie very different way of living and in some sense of relief. I suppose it's still transitions dara. It's interesting because you still have guilt. Like i know especially now with the holidays coming. There's just times when i think you know. I tried so hard with my mom and like christmas. Two thousand nineteen. Our city. park is full of christmas. Trees that are decorated with different organizations or businesses. Some of them just decorate 'em however they want some decorate them with the theme like one of them was basically a pizza christmas tree so all. The decorations looked like slices of pepperoni slices of pizza. Which is kind of not super christmas. But it was very cute. I took her there because it was bright. It was outside it. You know i thought. Oh she'll love this and it was just like she was like clueless and it was and she was honoring. I think she was having a bad day. And it's hard knowing. That was her last christmas. We did have a really good lunch on the twenty third of december and then everything went to hell after that. So there's interestingly enough you still have like these guilt feelings. Like i should have done more could have done more and it takes a while to get through those i think so. It's i'm i'm finding that with myself and other caregivers that are in my position. So if you guys are experiencing that it's pretty normal which is frustrating. But there it is so. I read on your website that the alzheimer's society which is pretty much the mirror. Image of the alzheimer's association here in the states found that ninety percent caregivers experienced feelings of stress and anxiety weekly more like daily probably at least sixty percent of them struggle to talk about the impact of caregiving on their lives because of feelings of guilt. It's like. I can't complain about what. I'm going through because my loved. One has a tea or alzheimer's or whatever and so how can caregivers balance their needs and the needs of their loved ones. In your opinion like you know have we. Have you thought that one through as you launch charity. I think the as mansell. How things i i think the fittest into that. It's okay to feel the way you feel. i think. Give a lot of as you just explained guilt and extreme sense of gt Which means the facebook does because the caring for fest often before themselves. That i think is important for the mental health of the unification which ben immediately impacts the wellbeing of the patient. They need to care for themselves as well. A member. the average duty of air to themselves as much as they have achieved care to the person benefitting asta and i think inaccessible and really letting mass inside. You know that that's true. I'm giving yourself giving his a brain give yourself the option to feel how you feel and to Except that you need to care about yourself. As well is the vista

When paired with tv's they said that could intensify a longstanding complaint of developers who have struggled with the difference in resolution between hand-held and tv modes and now face a bigger gap between the two that can intensify long cynically. The nudist plays resolution. Mir's the current switch and switch life but is an upgrade from the switches. Six point two inch and lights five point five inch size if the consuls housing remains unchanged the new switches likely sport a thinner basil parris lilly. How do you unpack this. would you be excited for. Would you buy. Do you believe it. So i have three switches in my house already. My kids you're buying this no matter. What no yeah. I'm getting it absolutely. This is the one that i've been waiting for. I think the biggest thing that i took out of this. It's not only as an led screen but the fact that you're because of the power consumption is going to be less. You're going to get more battery life. That's obviously been a big thing that we've wanted with the switch in portable mode on thing which they don't talk about in this that i'm hopeful to see what whenever we we get the unveil. This is better joy cons potentially You know probably thinner. Basil's noted mentioned mentioned it in there as well. The fourcade thing is interesting. It's clearly the logical step to go when it's going to be in tv mode so speak. Yeah i guess. I really don't care when it comes nintendo with four k And i know there's obviously been some speculation with developer support on this. How are if it is going to be going from. Seven twenty pm scaling. All the way up to four k is that gonna put just make an extra workload for developers. Like i said to me if it stated tonight ep but it had better battery life better a bigger screen. That's enough i. I would be happy with that to me. The switch ninety percent of the time. I'm playing it in portable mode anyway. So i'm not overly concerned with there being four k in dock mode and playing that way so i mean i think a lot of this is true but it'll be interesting to see what what the truth looks like.
A dark picture emerges: atrocities in Ethiopia
"Rumors and scattered reports of atrocities in ethiopia's northern region of tigray have been swirling for months amid a media blackout. But the picture is now starting to become clearer and evidence for war. Crimes and crimes against humanity are stacking up on sunday. America's secretary of state anthony blinken condemned the killings sexual assaults and forced removals said to have taken place in tigray and called for troops to be withdrawn. The conflict began late last year. When the region's ruling party the tigray people's liberation front or tps aleph was booted out of the federal government where it had dominated for decades has to be off. Matt has announced quote final military operation against the defiant gripe province in coming days and a statement. Mr abiy said there was a catholic devise strategy to defeat the grand people's liberation front in the regional capital makaay without harming civilians late in november. Mr abi declared victory. Over the tb l. f. An armed resistance has continued yesterday. If government rejected america's demands describing. Mr lincoln's comments as regrettable. Thousands are known to have died in the conflict and more than two million people have been displaced. The growing civil war has drawn in fighters from neighboring regions and troops from eritrea which borders tigray to the north. I'm gonna stay. International has just released a report detailing its investigation into this incident that took place in late november an accident which is one of the oldest and most famous holy cities. Tom gardner addis. ababa correspondent. Ever soldiers killed hundreds of civilians over two days. And what i'm going to stay says was retaliation for an attack by local youth on their military camp now. Amnesty says the soldiers roams around the streets of the city picking out on young men and killing them on the spot then proceeded to plunder the city essentially of everything of value survivors said that all they could see on the streets with bodies and people crying this systematic slaughter civilians and axiom may amount to crimes against humanity according to amnesty. And you say the main players in this incident or allegedly airtran soldiers right just to remind people. This conflict has drawn in a few other parties. In addition to the ethiopian federal army and two grand forces loyal to the tps laugh you also have militia security forces from may bring regional state of. Im hara which has a rivalry with the laugh and disputed territories along their border and then and this is really controversial element. You have troops from eritrea. Which since the beginning of the conflict has been fighting alongside the ethiopian army against the which has a long rivalry with as well as to whether all these parties are committing atrocities. I think based on everything we know so far. Yes but i think. Eritrean soldiers are the most widely and extensively implicated and there are allegations of other atrocities beyond. What's happened in axiom. Ever since the war began in late november we've been hearing accounts trickling out which beginners rumor clearer. Picture is slowly started to emerge. We've seen several videos that appear to show ethiopian soldiers. Standing among the bodies of civilians. They've murdered there was an investigation by human rights. Watch found. European army had shelled towns including the capital of tigray mckelway killing at least eight hundred civilians including women and children and winding back to the beginning of the war the very first atrocity we heard about was this massacre in the town of my tatra which is in western tigray near the border with the neighboring regional state. I'm harlem according to a report that amnesty published at the time most of the victims were. I'm horrors murdered by militia. Sure the ousted rulers of tigray the epl f. That was then confirmed by day. State appointed human rights commission. Here however take ryan's reflect across the border to saddam tell of attacks on civilians by them militiamen an by government soldiers in the same area for its part. What is the european government saying about all these reports so that is an important question on february. The twenty six th the ethiopian rights commission which is a state appointed or body released a statement saying that it had also conduct an investigation. And that it's key. Findings brutally corroborated those of amnesty. That's quite a significant step forward by the commission which tried two to three years ago would never have come out with a statement like that. The question though moving forward is whether the government decides to accept its findings and act on them. We have heard a lot from the prime minister's office the attorney general's office and other government agencies about accountability but so far very little indication that the government is willing to hold anyone but members of the tepe accountable for crimes committed during this conflict. More makes it even more. Complicated of course is the fact that the prime culprits in this case were eritrean. Troops can be very politically difficult for the government. Addis ababa which has been relying on these troops from eritrea relying on its relationship with the eritrean government to conduct its military operations in

"Chris plank Saddam kind of disappointed in already so far yeah I figured you'd be flexing your muscles that you only missed the final score by what a point from your I will always all I said was going to be thirty four twenty four and that was thirty five twenty four not bad odds are not bad not bad at all already not really surprising you look at the two teams that will see vying for the Lombardi trophy but you can pack exact scores you're wasting your talent doing overnight radio yes just like that a lot of people have the over now what I'm assuming they made a boatload of money a lot of I'm assuming people jumped on that over here not a good day for the Bucksport favorites coming in both games coming in comfortably over the total so wasn't exactly what books would have liked to try and put themselves in a good position so for all the success they've had throughout the course of the post season today was not one of the days I will go down in the annals is profitable for the house but no one tries to the book maker will see if they can get the revenge in two weeks when the general public I'm sure I'll come under oath about taking over the total between the chiefs and forty Niners what's the process like before we get into the match up in coming up with some of the exotic skinny I mean I know you've done that and I know you're called upon to come up with some of them but how does that process play out what is that look like yeah you know it it's a labor of love more than anything else it'll take a lot of the best odds makers in the world a few days to try and put their heads together and start to come up with numbers that they feel comfortable using opening up large professional batters first before the general public gets involved and you typically have the same props every year they're a little bit formulaic will there be over time will there be a two point conversion will there be a safety things along those lines pretty straightforward and they're all mass model driven but the individual player prop stuff is simple or seemingly as simple as over under for quarterback passing yards rushing yards receiving yards what have you those start to get to be a little bit more challenging we try and identify game flow you trying to figure out exactly how the absence of Tevin Coleman will ultimately impact San Francisco's running game and while we're he Moster be the true benefit here or could we see map free to take on a bigger role all of those little exes and ohs it'll play a role before you start to get real creative once you have your bass line and then it's comparing it to the NBA games some of the golf tournament I know the folks at Westgate instead that they're gonna have props it'll go head to head with while their fury the championship title fight on February twenty second so you're really only limited by your creativity outside of a few regulatory issues depending on the state it's not just the screw apple profit many years ago and people were just jump right on over there like all we made a mistake on this I'm sure they've been many mistakes on prop bets now the trouble that odds makers don't use their due diligence or number ten to slip through the cracks I think one that you might be referencing a few years ago was over under a number of players to throw for passing the number ended up opening they know at minus one eighty alternately clothes that have very different price but you'll typically see that a lot of things like will there be a touch back on the opening kick off professional bettors will do everything they can this time of year to identify a handful of props they feel they have an edge on and it's the one time a year oddsmakers unfortunately can only put up so many walls before they're susceptible to putting up one stop number that they mailed Emily take a good amount of liability on the biggest price you today Todd was that the Niners won with spelling only six passes was it how it took the the chiefs a little bit of time to get going I mean what they did anything really surprise you that happened today I think it was the fact that the forty Niners won out there were able to hang thirty seven points on Green Bay doing it with the power running game not because I didn't think the run game is gonna happen six asked me subo Scarborough on the trade alliance almost rack up to our yards in week seventeen again the Packers had a win but the fact Jimmy Oppel wasn't asked to do much early on it look like it the design was gonna be San Francisco throwing the football deveaux Samuel played a huge role and my heart goes out to anybody that that him over forty nine and a half receiving yards because he had forty six about two plays into the game and then never really heard from them again so it was just the nature of how San Francisco what about their game plan how much Kyle Shanahan trusted his ground and pound attack even after Tevin Coleman went out re Moster stepped up put up four touchdown him to score three touchdowns in this game we paid thirty five to one I didn't see a single shop that had a score four touchdowns anywhere so this is something that had him as a three to one you get three to one of you was the leading rusher of the game was out of prop better one definitely would have been a prop that that was out there available I didn't actually see a price on it the over under for his rushing yards in this game is only fifty and a half that would put him to well that half below Aaron Jones is total no most didn't really see a whole lot of action in the pop market but Aaron Jones would have really bad under and it's always interesting to see who rises to the occasion and puts forth you know her role performance I don't think we're home free most search effort today was a surprising is seeking the Smith in the Superbowl other definitely caught a lot of people when you consider the Tevin Coleman was the bell cow last week with twenty two carries for hundred five yards it's just it's still kind of fascinating to me I I don't know if it was a testament to not needing to have a franchise quarterback with what Tennessee and even San Francisco were able to do more than it's just about working in the trenches I mean with the Niners have done Todd in committing to that that interior with Solomon Thomas in Armstead I mean they they have invested their first round picks in just getting tougher in the trenches have a day Hey I think a lot of it has to do is scheme and you know when you start to build football teams and fans of course fall victim to the flash in dash the running backs the wide receivers but you guys watch as much football as anybody I still really believe you built from the inside out you start with your center you look at your quarterback you start to build your offense to the defense of wind and at this point the way the game has trained you do need at least cover corner we saw Richard Sherman not very great results for long stretches but still position talent you know kind of becomes a dime a dozen not as far as game breaking wide receivers but he'll look at most you're in the path it took for him to get to this stage clearly he wasn't identified it is as in Ezekiel Elliott or sink one Barkley type and with the salary cap era being very real you can't invest the kind of money in a franchise running back in my opinion that's going to get you where you need to go and it'll make the decision that they have to make in Nashville all that more fascinating when they figure out how much money they're gonna allocated their cannery well they sort out their quarterback situations while dot is one really the loneliest number San Francisco getting one is there any reason the run out there get that number right away doesn't matter plus one echo minus one of his you know obviously a it is not gonna they're gonna fall on what is it I mean no reason to run out there plus which way is the one going to move on that in the over under this week I don't think there's a real reason to run to the window and less you decide that you want to try and play the same game teaser maybe wanna get San Francisco up through the seven along with the total then it makes some sense but you pretty much see consensus out there whether you're looking at shops in the desert area looking at fox bat right now everybody is kind of settled that one one and a half range with a total that fifty three fifty four range you did see an initial amount of support as far as professional looking to bet the game over early on it fifty one and a half but you never know how that's going to be the true position because you go over fifty one and a half you know the public's going to drive it up and you may have ample opportunity to take the under coming back so so much manipulation over the next two weeks as professional dated to every single match if it's out there in trying to identify where they can make their money on a game where there really are no limits as far sports books are concerned by the way it is is mattress Mack gonna be okay he just seems like he's losing a million dollars every week or something you know what I think that someone that's got the furniture store chain he does at gallery furniture in the fact that he wants to get a little skin in the game he's done their homework and he has the means and the where with all to try and be okay so I don't think we have to worry about him trying to figure out where his next meal is gonna come press okay Steph Todd should be finalized in can't wait to watch and will catch up with you before the game but the exile always a pleasure against he's on top so you have no right he was all in on the Titans but you know when we're all in on John middle coffees coming up in moments but first TV Sager is in the house to get us caught up on championship Sunday what's going on Steve conference title wins for San Francisco in Kansas city and you guys mentioned John Elway's career and that what he didn't usually have around him I was surprised to learn earlier tonight in doing some Superbowl research that you remember it was still the biggest blowout in Super Bowl history was thirty years ago Joe Montana threw five touchdown passes.

How can people get a hold of you if they want either a keynote or have you come train people how to interrogate? You can get a hold of me Eric. AT AROMATICS DOT com. You can go to my website Eric. MADDOX DOT COM. That's MADD radio X X one. E R I looked at the cover of the answer. I E R I C A do X.. And then you know I've got a facebook page and Kinda put videos about techniques. I have again not at your level. I have smaller podcast. Creating eating influence in you can kinda listen to that my facebook pages Eric. Maddox in so I kind. I just I try to stay out there and try to give information on. How do we make people talk? How do we get transparency if you wanted to? How their line? Here's how they're lying. The the most important message is in a relationship. How do you build trust? Yeah I like it. Have you thought about writing a book that centers around that is opposed to the story. So I have thought about it Mike. I feel so much more comfortable in verbal communication that I do written communication that this that was hard for me right now. I'm not saying I'm an imbecile. I can right but I feel like I I really am and good verbal communicator. I don't feel like a great written community so we'll give you that quick opportunity. Can you give us the thirty second elevator pitch on on how to build trust yes real quick. Trust is not about seeking to understand. But if you're talking mm someone every person every conversation you've ever have they're measuring you. Are you looking to fulfill your own needs in your own objectives taxes and quail your own fears or you looking to help me. And there's a measurement and if you can listen at a certain of so most people listen to twenty five percent you have to get it up seventy five percents you seventy percent people go. Will you send me way more interested meet and you ourself but the only way to fifty is you must seek empathy. That means you must seek understand the point of this conversation at this moment from their perspective. And if you do that there's no great away dangerous. Yeah Yeah I mean it's it's remarkable again the parallels it's very different with dogs in terms of how you do that because everything's nonverbal and body language oriented under mostly you can use resources and environment environment to kind of steer those those relationships and manipulated a little bit frankly but But to me that's one of the biggest problems I see whether it's social media or personal relationships business. Again coach athletes teacher students boss Awesome -ployees whatever is on both sides is is not listening to respond and not listening to understand you know and So so few people have have an innate ability to listen and really thank like well. How is the other person viewing this conversation? You know maybe I should try to understand where the fuck they're coming from. Maybe I should understand how they view me right now. You know giving example. Yeah please do how long we been talking not long enough but a little over three hours all right. If I'm listening to this conversation I like you but I like me and it's not because I don't have a cold store and I'm willing to sit here in feed right like all on doing his talking. This whole thing is about me because I'm a guest right. I'm coming one and done but honestly honestly you're the one that's be announcing being attractive in a sexual or you can go that route sexual. You're the one that that's more interesting. You're the listener. You're the one that's responding on the talk. This is about me and it's it's it's it's a little bit repelling at the in May Americ- what you're feeding these cool. I'm getting informed. What am I drawn towards you? I trust you. You know why because you're listening to me I'M GONNA leave. It'd be like really cares about. Wow and he was asking some goals. We should stay in touch. We're not going to leave here and go. I feel connected to Eric. You probably go. Who is talking about himself and I get it? I know but I'm a guest on your show. That's what I have to do do but I'm sitting here like I'd rather be in your seat right now and that's the example. That's just an example. It's like you're the listener. That's more intrigued. That's more tractive. Yeah I mean I guess it's enormously refreshing to hear that perspective from you. I I certainly try to make it that way where I give you know the guest of an opportunity to talk far more than me and just ask the questions that I think. Whoever's listening is is also going to wonder and things things like that that they're gonNA find intriguing fascinating or whatever but I appreciate saying a I think to push back a little bit? I think your story is incredibly incredibly fucking interesting and very cool and I could sit here for several more hours asking little little pinpoint questions. There is one that I actually forgot to ask that. I did want to throw in real quick just because again it ties in so heavy to what I do. How big of a role body language play in your interrogation allegations because again with dogs? It's every fucking thing I bet it is so it's it's semi important okay. So so body. Language is very very important but it's also something that could be definitely taught not so. I use a person's body language but it's so easy at this point in the game that it's not critical cool like it's critical. I don't know how to use it but it's so simple to me to understand body language in neural linguistics. That it's it's now I will just flow right. How important is reading education? I mean no you gotta be no. It's not it's foundation but once you get it down you which is read at that point. You're essentially taking it for granted the same way you would body lay okay so I think people just need to be careful about somebody just real quickly only if you WANNA talk about linguistics how people are lying right. Will they the the cap this and that and if if I'm over in this direction I'm probably being pretty accurate right if I'm continued do up here right like I'm nightly fabricating promise. I'm talking to the prisoner. I've talked to him fiber. He's been talked to interrogate five or six times. Your five or six weeks. Maybe he was creating their picture to fabricate. Hey the lines but after a while he's start looking over here because that's the story he's remembering so people get really tied up on that going. No Man he was telling the truth. I know he's telling the same story that he's remembering that at one time he was creating so I would just say be careful with. Don't rely on it too has no. Oh that's cool shit to me. It'd be it'd be really awesome if you did write a book. Anna talks about the intricacies of of those things and getting more in the weeds leads with the psychology. And the you know the framework behind interrogation and lying and things of that nature. I think it's IT'S PRETTY NEAT ship but Anyway before we wrap it up. Here's anything you'd like to add or talk about. I created a new way to interogations. And it's not because I'm smarter. I don't know it's because there was interrogation techniques that used to work the battlefield changed changed and we have to change with the battlefield. Any industry any CEO's or lesser managers out. There you tell me an industry that hasn't changed over the last five years and it's not that we are smarter than the people before us but we have to build a culture that cultivates our subordinates. Listening to our people listening to our clients and customers knowing we we have to check the world's changing it would be easy to do the things the way we always have. Only it's critically important. Do we go wait a second. Let's do things differently and I'm seeing. Why don't we have a culture where we embrace the idea of change? Not just for the purpose of change but under steamy amy it the battlefield changes we have got to change. I'm just going to say this. I take a lot of credit. I have no problem. Somebody wants to see me so much credit. I'm like okay ethic credit. I think I deserve but the one thing I will say is there is a Delta culture bright when you walk into that building they have a standing rule. If you you see something that can be done better. You have responsibilities. Speak Up. And it's not Haley here. We have a tip jar right some things. I might read them or all right. You got one on strike or not. You have one silver bullet. It's like none of them. Don't come in here. If you see anything we can do better. You have to speak up. How empowering hiring of a culture that is if you're the cook or you're the gardener or you the Chinese Mandarin linguists who never done an interrogation before that says you know what I didn't try out for this group I didn't make I'm not an operator but while I'm here I am one of them in? I am part of this family and I have the right to speak up that is. That's their power. I don't care what they get the baddest dudes and they're the most resources that's their power limits and it's is not specific to rank either right it's top to bottom it's everybody yeah they don't care if you show five the first one out the door. Yeah Yeah that's great I love it. that mentality. It's awesome a couple it with also don't bitch unless you have a solution you know so as as they say if you see something we can do better you have a responsibility to come through next line is don't bring us some stupid like I don't WanNa hear some stupid nece but come on me. We're here to get better and you know I always tell people do role plays in your the job. Do this do a ours. People don't WanNa do you know who does a ours J. Sock if there can do if they're willing linked to do a are after action report you civilian Dick's it basically says we're done with an operation or mission or a job. Let's take a look and see what we did. Good bad what we can do better. Yeah Oh we do role place yeah. They're called their walk. throughs right if the best of the best can do them. Yeah come come on. Yeah no I agree. I think that's how you learn. You know again the learn as much from your mistakes as you do. Your successes in many ways more That's it that's what I want to say. All right fascinating shed I I want to just say thank you again for common. It's been great having here Remarkable story no no less fantastic than I expected it to be in appreciate Sharon so much intricate detail with his process and In the story the book is called mission. Blacklist number one authors Eric Matic's again at highlights everything that we've just talked about in an even more in depth about the Hunting down and ultimate capture of Saddam Hussein. Who at that time was? I may argue. That he was the he was tied for the most. Those wanted man because Sherman bin Laden you know..

Gain that Oh Who's Chin he's supposed to have? I was told he was going to have at home on his chin and somebody a prisoner Jewish. It looked just like John Travolta's Chin in Before he got the hood off there's this Chen and I'm like that's him. Six o'clock in the morning flight light leaves they started. The interrogation. Wasn't going well. He knew he knew he knew he knew I knew he knew but he couldn't break break and he's getting emotional and some forty five the base you're out of here so I- colorist and I'm leaving. I'm not messing with you. I'm leaving and nobody thinks he's into cre- except for you and me put you in that prison. They're not going to give you another shot and I'm leaving so I need it now. He said I can't can't. I'm like you're going to change your mind. I know how the story ends and I'll be gone when I'm going make somebody come talk to you. I said no one's GonNa come talk to you he's foursome. Come talk to you. Go crazy put him in his cell left went to my coach. Had packed grabbed my stuff that had been under this for five months. They're driving across the tarmac in the senior interrogators. Would you do that. I didn't do anything keep going. He's like what did you say the prison among. I didn't say anything. Why he's like freaking out? They think your guys trying to kill him so like he wouldn't stop banging his head against the wall so and I'm like Oh gosh he just broke ran. Corrupt jumped out of the truck rain across flight lines like hold the plane grainy and grabbed the prisoner brought him out and he looks at me. And he's like you gotta go like domestically man. Where where is he? He's like he's in. He's in a little village. Called avoir at the farmhouse of a man case. Naming Jesse drew sketch got map and he's looked now. The prisoner Mohammadi brings looked at me. Go we've gotta go me and we cannot mess around let's go Saddam's right hand guy basically these the the one guy. They're only one person knew where he was. The one guy who knew where he was we had him. He said. Let's go right now. They so bad didn't think he was into Crete when the team comes back on like just broke and they're like cool me you'll get on track. I'm like no yours team. Ed like no no no. He knows in the senior Interior whereas he said he's into heels man you'll get on the Dadgum. AM truck and I gave the stuff. And I said please call Ma'am please. I love of God call. Bamyan took me the flight. You know. WHO's on the fly? Admiral Mc. Make your bed right. GotTa fuck with them. Admiral mcraven on the fly in his whole crew. When I was leaving leaving because the one point nine million I had to give all these briefings gave one to the Task Force Commander Admiral mcraven who I really awesome still? I just love right. I was like you're coming to Doha with me on the thirteenth. And your briefing that link Diagram. So here's our flight. Totally exactly Marine Corps Interrogators Cirque in. I've always thought maybe it's the jet awash. But what it truly was is. When you're a one-star with this task force in an e six comes and says a guy just broke he can take us to Saddam? Somebody on your chaining somebody in your team's gotta be the one that's gonNa tell you that. Not The the staff sergeant so we flight flight takes off lands by this time when it lands posse waiting on a pull him moth pull into a room. He comes out and I'm like what happened last night. I said we got Mohamed. Ibrahim and he's GonNa take to Saddam. He's like awesome. We're turning the flight around. He goes reduce it up. I'm going back and now it's on. He goes you have to give the briefing tomorrow. Because you're stating how big of a kick in the fucking balls was that I mean I I get your explanation like you know the reality was. They didn't need me anymore. But God Damn Damn I just wanted to be a clear indicator they still thinks in secrete and they operated Baghdad. In Admiral mcraven did not operate with a task force that I used interrogators like Bam Bam then never been done before. I'm care you you can go back and US history Bam. Bam was the first person to say the interrogation are taking the spearhead. And so why would they admiral mcraven though that I was I was just like every other interrogator in his mind. Yeah I guess that makes sense. He did he just didn't know. But do you still keep in touch with Bam Aminul. I've seen him warrants. Yeah get along all right. Oh I mean I don't know she still on active duty. No Jesus all right. He's everybody got promoted. I don't doubt it becomes a hero. He's my hero and he's general you from Canada General. Oh He's a major. He was a major. Okay it's thirty three years old. I was thirty one so the next day I had to go to hospitals to give this brief next day. Anything they write all briefings or cancel. We'll get out of here. Yeah so you didn't even give it well. The person okay an e. five was going to escort. Admiral mcraven mcraven in Doha. I need you to understand admiral. mcraven was going on that trip to Doha for Arnold Really. That's how close they thought they were to Saddam Hussein so we when he turns that plane up and goes back the e five looks at my marine buddy and I said hey man. I'm a mcraven had dinner reservations. He on are you want his reservations for the next day right. Yeah we're drinking beer. I would love to have admiral mcraven on here and get from his perspective this process. It'd be it'd it'd be interesting you know what I I can assure you. Every single thing is exactly the way it went down. It's a lot easier eared. Remember the details of the story because you were living in. But I'm curious if he remembers having that nonchalant attitude attitude towards him being in to create or not. If you'd be willing to admit that you know I wonder too and I can tell you this. Okay I'm going to give him. Credit heated serve tons of great right. When I got back with the fishermen the head of Intel he loved what Bambi was doing because the money and he said man we got these Intel analysts they need a briefing on to cree right? So all these aimless show so while I'm waiting for the three days hoping they're gonNA do my last rate in Baghdad. Getting Ready to leave a table of. Let's say twelve aimless there the task force think-tank. I think they sit around six. I'm falsely because they're exhausted. Nobody gives a flip. I get done. Swear all sitting like this like bullshit this six get up with and we walk away and he goes. I don't care what they think he goes. You're GONNA go brief. The Admiral he tells the admiral ammos cuts his time and gives me get full hour at breaking full hour. And he's like I have to go once whatever once a quarter back to headquarters and briefed the progress of Saddam. He's like you're going with me. Your briefing he goes. That's our briefing. So he believed the problem is when I was giving the briefing. I didn't say hey I've got your next hit I've got I've got your thing. So as we're leaving they did the capture will if they could tolling that morning got Mohammed covering. They know it when I figured it out. It's too late well. It wasn't it's just the right person didn't tell him. Yeah well so all right so the radio. That's the politics of. Yeah no I mean should have said I'd love to get a mcraven on here. Not that I probably ever would. But I'm curious so the so the raid happens. Where were you actually at your in Doha? That night when the raid took place we actually got him and so the next morning you do the brief you end up going back and you go. You are on your way home at that point right I was they sent me to DC. Yeah so that's when the world my world change but the in the intro the book if you could talk about when you actually when it was made public and where you were sitting those comedy comedy story so I knew in Doha. Yeah but we're not allowed to tell anybody nobody knows and we. I slow from Doha to Heathrow. We have a layover in Heathrow. And that's when it's popped and I'm like okay here we go and I'm standing in the bar are you. If you've been to Heathrow. There's right in the middle of the terminal there are and there's two Brits in I mean just as bright as they convenience like L.. Whatever ever they had him the whole time they just pulled him out for the elections and it was the first time in my life from like mother? Though I actually know the truth of something like I don't know if conspiracies exist in the world I don't I don't but I'm like there is no conspiracy. Chrissy yeah that had to be weird as fuck sitting there with that amount of knowledge surreal feeling surrounded seeing it on TV surrounded by you know Brits. It's talking shit and knowing what really happened in being an integral part of that is just. It's fucking wants Wyoming. Can I tell you what was the coolest surreal feeling is I call.
"saddam " Discussed on Mike Drop
"How do you do intelligence collection with that goat rope like you're stuck with twenty people you don't I don't know anything so it's a problem? That's like hurting hurting cats on ice skates while fireworks. Going whichever which sounds like a fucking good youtube video while you bullshit and all right. So you start interrogating many of these suspected resilient regime sympathisers family family members bodyguards etc.. If you could kinda describe the process in the in the infamous information train that you built during that time as you start as racking backing them up you know what I started doing. I had the prisoners that I had available and I was able eventually to get them to say one target or to target what I always wanted to do once. I hit the the tar when I wants to teen rated and they brought back the prisoners. My first goal was to figure out. Was it a good here. Can I trust trustmark prison in then. Okay I had this prisoner. Just keep me one more time and so it was a slow building linked diagram and what you do do then. I started to realize wait a second. They may take me to a target. That's bad guy but when I really need other facilitators the people that are safe houses people they trust relatives so now had this link died in the game. Very three dimensional rank. It was very linear with bad people. But where the dynamic nine Hamic and the g the meet Caine was all the relationships around this person and that now you created hundreds thousands thousands and aims. So you could understand the guy name of this city as it pertains to bodyguards with regard to the insurgency and I to get my arms around that. Yeah you mentioned whether or not I can trust a informant or not. was there a process that you had to determine that was a gut feeling was dependent on the personality process. I'm GonNa give you one shot. You're GonNa take me to house if I get there air and the person there and they are bad. You're my gosh. How much money do you need? Typically you would get there and the person had not been there and weeks. I went and found. Why did you think they were? They were there six weeks ago. Oh I could have asked that question I I think I did ask. That question was last time. You're there and you said well I thought this so I give him a shot. I figure out what the problem is. I try to improve communications vacations with my informant. Maybe get a second shot. And then they're out so two things on you know that that trust in easy way to verify if they're trustworthy is give give me a tip and we go hit at how. How many times? How much did you run into examples of either? Just they didn't like somebody and wanted to fuck with them or it. It was a fucking trap for your guys. And they're like Oh yes guys here and they're waiting for you. Did that happen. Never Attract I. It's not gonNA be trapped. It's just not okay. So let me also clarify. I rarely used informants that work at one point a prisoner. They always were a prisoner. And I'm in and out going. Okay go find me these guys know. How do I trust them if I capture a Bagai a kid who's in the insurgency urged a catcher's two brothers? I'm gonNA tell the brothers. y'All are semi innocent but you knew what your brother was doing. I'M GONNA keep your brother and you to go and get his bosses. Once I get that scored way I'm GonNa let him go by the way I better here from me. I'm come back and get you. Oh You WanNa Leave Your Dad's at home. I'm GONNA get him. Let's let's be clear what's going on here. I know your world I'm GonNa give you a shot to work your way out so much. Form it or yeah you got some work to get out of the situation then create for you. This is not a hostage keeping situation just leveraging their their relationships against them which you know is obviously excuse me obviously increased. What I'm seeing you can trust? They're not going to set up an ambush. What I couldn't trust is they weren't just giving me something hoping he may not check? But yeah no I I get that I guess the there were elements of like. Hey I can't stand my fucking neighbor down the street that shot one of my cows. LemMe say he's a fucking bad guy. That happened pretty off absolute. Yeah now I did actually actually some of that in the book. Yeah so so what I could do that is I started out. How early November? I created this process where I could actually take an informant that I- semi trusted in go enough circles in their story to figure out. Is this ironclad yeah. Is there a secondary motivation because of insulin. My commander name is Bam said. Hey you your main goal air part is well. These walking's walk INS are a problem Figure out for this is going to be stupid. Are we wasting our time. So that was a process to if there were guys that were already in custody that gave you bad tips like that to go fuck with somebody. They didn't like. was there a punishment for that. yeah. Can you describe sure so stapler nuts to the chair. And I'm GonNa make much worse than that right so what I do Mike as I stay within the law because I think that ethically that's what I said I was going to do so. I stay within the law. Aw I realize I'm smarter than that and I know how to solve this problem right. So here's what I do if I have a prisoner. Who says there's bad guy over here? Go you go to the house bring the person back realize oh my gosh. This person is in the same business is his brother and he's trying to take down. You know something like that what I'm GonNa do. I WanNa grab the person I captured. I'm GONNA bring him in front of the prisoner and I'm GonNa say me we your house. This guy gave us the information. Do you know him. He's in competition. I need you to go and everybody. You know that. This guy's rat mouse people for his own benefit and then I let them know. I think that personal fields. No yeah now we got real. You're using the Americans solve your personal problems. Yeah that's way worse than any tape would that Would that message resonate through the prison. Where other guys knew that would happen if they did that? And helped curtail So typically you can always control what resonates to the prison. What the description I gave you very blatant I could just since messages? Maybe have a conversation it makes this prisoner heard it. Maybe wouldn't directly in front but just enough subtlety to where it's like. Oh my gosh. Did you hear what's going on because people because I was trying to use a negative to my advantage through through the negative. They said we have to keep prisoners because they talk to each other prisoners. Talk to each other. Why do I use that for my information campaign? Yeah wait a second if you released guy. He's going to say what he knew it here. I'm like wait a second. Maybe releases guy. He's GonNa say what he heard me. Why don't I control that narrative and to me that's awesome and so that makes me wonder then if you're letting some of that take place are you? Do you have the ability to to monitor that Obviously to some degree but was there any really unique ways. They were communicating things that you kind of caught them doing that. You weren't expecting you're like Holy Shit. Like how did they pull all this off. I thought it was fascinating the way they would. So if you have have a prisoner and you release them at persons like Kryptonite Everyone who ran the e flip. Es spot seeing Texan you get away from me. In the way that the enemy could slowly start testing bringing some food up to a relative Bring the I mean it was very four five days before anyone and then get them get them. I mean they were so careful to not because they were like okay. We're going to release you not me. We're GONNA release you and when the enemy comes call us. We'll capture the. They're not GONNA do that. You East these guys are stupid okay. Well then we're releasing. He won't join the enemy. Oh he could if you're not they have it's just A. It's a vetting process process. It's awesome the way they do. That's a fucking remarkable and I think it speaks to different than prison systems here. The ingenuity that exists. It's in that environment is fucking astound. War is such a great Creator for entrepreneurship. It's crazy crazy ship. I mean saying the prison. You know selling fucking soup and shanks whatever All right so you you wind up You know as you're building your resume of people you're interrogating you run into a really interesting arresting cat named Tisch Shin Tashin that's Saddam Servant And I I thought it was really neat. Some of the things that you learned about Saddam Dom that proved incredibly valuable from somebody that that you know. Unquestionably a Lotta. People may think is less valuable than you found the cook. Yeah could you talk to some of the things that you learned that people would find interesting especially if there's something that maybe you didn't mention the book that you gleamed from From I'm him. So this was Saddam chef and he cooked every meal for Saddam Hussein for did he drags nuts across food. mcdonalds-style Louis taste them. He didn't think it was that big of a deal that he was Saddam's cook. He was he was very whatev- about the whole situation He basically said there is a dish. That's very unique to Iraq. It's a fish. They should dish called. Maas goof anybody who's listening might be rocky. You know that dish Moss Goof. It is way up. It's the type of preparation in in a little bit of the spices. But it's cooked in an open fire and over the certain way of a fish and the chef said I make the best MAS goofing world. I'm famous Hussein's Cook. It's his favorite meal so then he says a couple of pieces. I don't know if I put this in the book or not. Saddam late twice a day. Saddam did not stay in a different place every other every other night Saddam never ever had doubles really ever for Shit never had doubles. And that's the biggest misconception. How many times have you gone after an att? Mike and they're like Oh this person. What is it that they have to take insulin? They have to take bags and bags. Insulin they're about to die and if they're going to have probable and you get like they don't I don't know like just not true and there's rumor mill so the number one. Saddam only stayed in about five places and ninety percent from the time he stayed in three palaces and this guy knew he cooked every single meal motion. It didn't have a double Salami twice a day and he absolutely love this fish to integrate. Yeah he ate it all the time. That's why the guy was was was this guy cooking while you you know after the invasion of that was it. It was done right like he's in. That was a very interesting point to me was was the guy said a couple of days right before we we announced when we're coming a few days in advance Saddam brought people in and there were these group of bodyguards to to Mia Mike like somewhere. It here is the group you know who is in. That group was Muhammad e bring Omar Muslim guy. WHO TOOK US to Saddam? He was one of the eight or nine people but at that point point they released the staff. They said Go. Don't do go. We'll call you when we're back in action we're up. It's I get it. We're we're going to have a hurricane. Hunker Down Yeah adds some fascinating shifts. That is really surprising that he had no double and didn't go all all over the place because those are the two most common you know now that we know misconceptions about him. I'll tell you what he did what he did. News at three levels of bodyguards level. Three hours all there permanently at the palaces. They're they're fixed security level to two eighty sixty eighty level twos. They would be the mobility team and they would go PRI PRI recon and secure an area where he was going to what he did do is he would send them off to the I five different locations so you never never knew which one he was going. Okay but then his inner circle they were always with him and that was about thirty to the thirty two and they operated in teams sixteen sixteen for forty seventy two hours at a time. Seventy two hundred seventy two off foul and those thirty two were his most trusted asshole for his boys and so the the advantageous yet the advanced teams that would go to these five locations than they would report. Yeah it's clear go this route. Or whatever. And then his inner circle of of those thirty two would would use whatever info they needed to go to the place that they actually we're going to go. They were his immediate. PTSD odd Mahmoud Black. He was the ace ace below the sons. He was the ace of clubs. You know he was always with Saddam trust gap but guess what we captured turned him in Psalm. Winning where near. Yeah so yes. Oh so. Basically once they scattered three sheets the wind was Kinda. All bets are off. And we didn't know who Saddam picked to be his handful and tell her okay all right so one thing than another thing I found pretty fascinating as you. Observe others interrogating within your kind of field office and you notice a pretty stark contrast between your style. And there's and I wanted to read another excerpt here that That kind of highlights that that I thought was valuable for.

"Yeah but this was the first time I'm white. Thank goodness I don't have to live my mill. I don't believe the rest of my life saying I didn't go right so juiced and they asked. Would you be willing to go out with the team's on their raids and I'm sure absolutely so. There are teams out there right in their areas where everyone assumed Saddam is the assumption was. He's in Baghdad. Active I'm telling you so the the the current interrogators or five of them. They wanted to go on missions with Baghdad. The last thing they wanted to do to create to create team calls. We're going on mission. I can we get an interrogator chat. We got the guy for you. Yeah so they said hey we got up to create. I might awesome. This'll be great Chinese Mandarin Lewis's taking the stupid mission into Curry Curry. You'll be home tomorrow. Well I I knew I WANNA stay. I didn't know if I was GONNA stay. I knew I wanted to win up there in the middle of the night right in quickly within an hour. We're leaving the wire and we're going on right and it was everything I wanted it to be right like you talking. It was right out of the movie. It was stupidity. There were definitely some miscommunication. Certainly when the team's fault but they're miscommunication mutations on driving through sectors of military you know we got lit up my fourth. ID fifty cow. I mean in and then we go in the house. The Guy Opens up an AK and he said well. I thought it was being robbed. So you're like we're not dealing with war here. We're dealing with guy who thinks he's being raw. Ah Yeah so it's all these stupid stuff but we went from one to the second two thirds three raids in one night. Yeah were you using the Intel and actionable. We'll show you gathered from raid one to hit rate to e kind of so I gotta be honest. I'm not sure what until we're using the hit house one. 'cause I got right there. Yeah but it was definitely an informant and it was cluster right like we went to a house of a former regime member. People had already been to the house now once we were there. A nephew of that guy said Oh. No I know where it's real houses. So so yeah so we go there. We'll guess what we already been there too. So we're going on raids of places that the military had already been in in the likelihood that personal return to almost nil. Yeah Okay if you could talk about kind of the the initial phase into that from a timeline timeline standpoint Because for the kind of context of the listener this is in summertime of three July. Twenty eight two thousand three three when I get to Iraq okay and then just so so. The reader knows everything that we're going to talk about for the next power long couple of days probably is the span from that time until December thirteenth which were not Saddam so just just for reference for the listener. All Right Mike so I get to secrete. We go on those three missions next day I am told I'm told this while you're going back to Baghdad. The team that was there there had an operator is named Jeff White and Jeff said you know what I am the liaison. Jeff said Jeff's the liaison as on between the team and agencies case officer in Jeff at had it with agency. I Dunno if you experiences but yeah I would never do in the agency. Do not get along out there. There's a there's a dispute jar who's got the bigger Dick. That's exactly right. Alright so I was not I wanNA threat and Jeff have so irritate with agency. And he hated their sources. He aided their informants that he said you know we got a bunch of prisoners. which what do you say you? Would I start doing an interrogation like sure. What are you can't trust trustees jackasses guarantee the report stuff up the chain not telling us right same Allston so I'm like yeah so jeff told his boss A by the way this Guy Lebron that was it i. I didn't leave so I start doing interogations Jeff White. The operators sitting in and from that moment is sort of when I began the interogations and then Jeff's also sitting in agency meetings the operator now so so he's come to me go. Hey by the way here's what agencies working on so I'm getting fed that ban. That was the beginning right. That was the beginning of my interrogation career and a had an advocate in this operator. Jeff and I didn't quite understand what true actual intelligence agents was like. I didn't know the fidelity was needed to give but he loved the way I questioned and he likes the way that I- piece things together. Yeah now do you still talk to him at all. He's one of my best. No Shit. Yeah we're actually doing event together September eleventh in AC man. That's awesome hearing you start to explain that process. It made me think back to you. Know again from a gateway they sent you up there in terms of in your background with infantry going through ranger school pushing them out to that unit but I am curious. If if kind of the general consensus of the of the country as it relates to in the the intelligence agencies et Cetera were all relatively or primarily convinced that Saddam was in the Baghdad area. Why I get that? You're not the Arabic speaker and whatever but why bring you country and push out to somewhere where they think he's not there well he worry was they thought he was in Baghdad. In looking back on it I'm convinced people. They get intelligence from where their sources to gather intelligence exist. The majority of agency case officers were in Baghdad. Yeah so it was is the draw there now. There was already a team into creek. But I can tell you. That team was seeking to relocate tobacco. Go anywhere anyway. And here's how here's how I know the Task Force knew he didn't thank. You was decreed halfway through tour into Crete. There was one agency case officer he got shot. It was stupid it was a two. Oh three Roy Moore the team guy. Yeah they want his real name. Yeah a little fragment goes in. He had to go exploratory. He Agency had fifty case officers in country. They couldn't replace one in Decree no because he said he went into cre- Gotcha you're looking for the most part of the world. Yeah and you have fifty case officers and you won't one. Let's go 'cause they didn't think he was there but to two questions Russians was was there actionable. Intelligence or corroborated enough intelligence to give them the idea that he was in Baghdad Baghdad or was it just he must be here because it's Baghdad. They did so many raids every single day in Baghdad. The problem is when a raid was wrong. The t-o-n would dick would drop the prisoners with the interrogators. What you never saw at least four days I was? There is the team or whoever there was never a a conduit that would say let us know why it went wrong. You just were told we didn't get the PC the precious cargo. Yeah tell us what to do with these prisoners. Are they innocent release or should they obligate because if you know why you fucked up. That's that's as important as if you know why you screwed up. Then you know that informants not reliable. Yeah Yeah but there was such a disconnect between agents Israeli Mormons hits and the follow up the interrogators saying hey this was just the wrong guy. What happened yeah? No it makes sense The other question I had and I don't know if you know can speak to it once he was caught Is there a general consensus or idea of you. Know from this March seventeenth the day that the work kicked off what his path was from one when he went underground. Is that known I can you. You share yeah. He was hiding in the Tacoma area at he'd stayed in one house like so right away. Lead up to Crete. Yes yes series up through the whole fucking time. It wasn't bouncing around and no. He was one of three farms in to create the whole damn time. Yes Shit. Now would I tell you what he would do. So I don't know if anybody's watching but are you can see but if you look at the town of Secre okay. There's a river. The Thi English River runs right so new tube assholes go to youtube and watch it but it runs right through the Middle City on the west side of the cities where the people are on the east side of cities where the farmland is yeah. There's one single bridge that goes across And you can see it from the rooftops of the decree palace correct. You can see it for me. It's right right there. Yeah I've seen that you so you know what I'm talking about well if all. US forces are over here because the population is he was pretty free to navigate through here especially especially after curfew so he would kind of he would look they drive him around and they saw somebody on Siro they'd pick them up give Mariah and he would he would he would say stay with the fight. Believe we're coming back but he kept his presence in the room meal of these people enough to go in gone. I don't think he's going to protect them or just. Don't think if you're if you're putting all eggs in the American basket. Yeah I'm gone yet. And they're scared. He had enough of an iron fist. Just that little bit of he was in this zone the eastern side the river all nine. Yeah it's interesting because you know we'll talk about my experiences and to create but I was really fucking close to where he was then which is interesting. We'll we'll get into that here in a minute so as as soon as you get into your first interrogation which I'm assuming was a follow you want from the the triple raid. I night or very soon. Yeah I thought that it was. It was really neat the kind of the synopsis that you provide of of the after action the things that you learned and you end up the guy that you interrogate is a nephew of Saddam a bodyguard nephew of Saddam. If you could explain who he was in the importance Of of him so in the very first person was a guy named Roffe. Itam Ebrahim In when you say nephew you'd be careful to say it wasn't like Saddam's brothers kid right not like you hear a distant relative relative but Saddam trusted all members only members of his family. All of his bodyguards were from to creep in Saddam. Had I'm GONNA say ED probably at one time at any given time you have two hundred bodyguards. But he had inner circle Middle Circle third. Well this was a second circle. said he was Thurbers. The second circle bodyguard and he knew the dynamics of a social network which was Saddam's uh-huh body guard network. The could not be explained by rank. It's just there were family ties. And connections that gave the power now. He didn't lay that out for me but it was clear this nobody nobody. He had information that we need. I just I. At that time I wouldn't nothing terrier to get it really out of him yet. You talk about you know your lessons learned from that. First interrogation irrigation. I want to read the first excerpt from from your book that I pulled out as as I thought it was a pretty apt. The conversation you say as I sat alone alone at the table I reviewed all the mistakes had made over the last several hours. I had asked unnecessary questions. Let Rafi see where I was going before I got there lost my temper when I should've stayed calm and vice versa. I now had firsthand experience in some of the many ways to screw up an interrogation. I couldn't tell myself that I wouldn't make the same mistake twice ace but at least I knew what the mistakes were slowly. I was beginning to learn how to keep the details straight how to close out the pass of evasion and how not to let a prisoner see the traps traps. I was laying for him. I was beginning to understand. Not just how to ask questions but why I was asking the questions. Raw Information was less important than what the the information told me about. The prisoner was questioning what he was thinking what he was afraid of and what he had to hide..

"This is the one daddy. Give up like. It's a thing not a person so it was just a removal of that personal. Maybe you'd expect on a movie. I mean because to me. Obviously you're not in your mom's life but your mom was obviously early in your grandmother's life the entire time so again is put myself in in your grandmother shoes like if I have a child that gave a you know somebody heard option. They showed up like I. I would take a little more vested interest in that just seemed a very odd response but in any in any way it was just wondering if that Feted across your mind or if you've had any Perspective on that but oh yeah it crossed my mind. Yeah Yeah let's in nothing sense right like you haven't reached out you know well bill because of my job. I know exactly where she lives. Yeah so I always keep a tab on my mother my biological mother. I mean that grandmother that lady. She passed away fifteen months ago because I kind of follow that I follow them. But I don't make contacts. I don't want to mess with them do do they have any idea what you've done. No no idea not I mean. Would they even know your name to know that it was you know permanent now. I told the grandmother grandmother and I gave her my contact information but I was never reached out by the mother. I know she has a son who's three years after me right. I'm Kinda Joking Mike. Well it must have been a keeper right. But I don't want if she didn't tell that right I don't want to make that a difficult situation in her. Her now makes sense. It's a IT'S A. It's a hard experience to to imagine going through. You know for anybody that didn't have that man. I just want to say one thing. It's not that hard. If you got great adoptive parents yeah absolutely and that will. That's what makes it really simple is Mike thing may just DNA nothing else now. It's a good good perspective on it for sure heart. So you go into the army. And and there's a buddy named Casey that you look up to You know it was just a little bit ahead of you which I found Kinda funny and ironic in that. I had a similar situation in but I was the the Casey in this. In this case. My Buddy Matt joined we had originally talked about being rangers together and my my parents were pretty dead. Set against me being in the army army. They would rather the navy which is kind of funny because I ended up doing basically the same shit anyway. But but at any rate I joined about six months before he did Or so and You know he went up being arranged in an you know went on to to be in Delta in was in Iraq there but Just kinda funny any reading the same kind of a similar scenario but interestingly your friend K. C. ends up passing away unexpectedly. What Do you know what what happened. Sure whose name is Casey Banyan. He year older me joined about a year before I did Ranger Special Forces was teaching that the Swick at the time of his death and he died just before we invaded Iraq and he's dynasty leap and he had had heart murmur heart. Beat I don't I don't know what that means ride. The engine just would miss a beat once in a while while and he just in wake up so but he and I grew up together. SMART dude man humming coming Genius Smart. Oh how did that impact you in your career. He's impact for me was really the first ten year the first part of my career. I'm always chasing this guy and it's not negative right like I wish he would have been king of the world. I was hoping he would slowdowns downslide catching but you're still chasing right. You're still I think they did that. I gotTa do this and he. What's what's funny is whenever Our paths will cross the military he would do is grab people and Brag about me Chinese remainder main. Look at this and I'm way too. You're the guy so it was great relationship relationship of mutual respect and then when he died right before I went to Iraq. You know for me. It was like kind of talking talking to your Guardian Angel Literally. I because you're like I said eighty percent of your time with these prisoners. I'm not Delta Force right. I don't claim to be. I'm attached to them so I'm not one of them. So who am I hanging out with right up to prison. I mean so for for me it was that relationship. Even though he's dead said that I'm talking to him as I'm going through this really difficult deployment i. I don't know if that sounds weird. But that's how no not. Hey at all I mean I think you know how. How else can you maximize the the remembrance of somebody than than something like that? I don't know that you can. I think it's uh-huh great way to honor his memory. You know. That's I can't imagine having that happen you know. It's just such a kind of a fluke fluke mishap type of thing. You know it's one thing to be killed in action or even in an accident but you know something like that. So unexpected is tough. She spent three three years infantry. And then you go to interrogator school. What can you share about that? I know that There's probably a lot of it that you can't but Could you kinda cliff cliff notes. The experience in being trained at the base level to be a military sure. Okay so I'm three years as military infantry love. The idea of a foreign language witten took the foreign language aptitude test did really well and they say you can take any language you want. I said I want to learn Chinese manner and my goal was to become a Chinese mandarin linguist. They said well you got to have any less. And there's really two in the army you can either be Cygan Ninety Gulf which means you're going to sit and listen or they said you do interrogations and they said don't worry so ninety. You'll never do interrogations gauge. You'll never do one. Yeah so I picked interrogation so the Real Chore Was Getting Through Language School. You do seventeen months language school cool and then it's eight weeks of interrogation training and they even said you can't float the interrogation school so you go through this training that you're not worried about camp plunkett. Maybe you could if you were had a disciplinary added but we didn't in the nineties they didn't make you interrogators to be interiors stories. We needed linguists. We need Chinese rushing we we we had a language issue. We have any prisoners. So I mean what about for like even even if you pass from an aptitude standpoint but you're struggling with the language is still there basically just going to get you through. No No. You're you're you're not GonNa get you the language course just language course. You had had better pass you. You've got to be proficient the language. What I'm seeing is once you pass the language course not they needed you have an MOS but but the first couple of years out of interrogation course? I was a Chinese Mandarin linguists. Okay I was an Intel collector. There were no interrogation. Now gotcha that makes sense So just you know focusing on the important thing and then once one sets. They're doing what they have to for you to be able to apply that skill. Set Your intelligence collection officer with Elaine skill. Yeah okay. We didn't have prisoners till nine eleven. Yeah all right so you're in Arizona at that point I mean You end up getting married. have two kids divorced And essentially go go all in operationally after that I won't Dig Too heavy in your background around there but what I guess more importantly like how's the relationship with your kids and action in how our things. Now how did that kind of go. Sure go assure sure I so I got married in two thousand and immediately had had a son my son Jo jo jobs graduate high school just this week starting. His first year at Arizona State University almost full scholarship. Oh Shit he's smart little guy. He's an engineer Going into engineering. So he's at Asu freshman on her son. Eric Marshall is A junior junior in Gilbert. You know whatever reasons I don't go into my failed marriage but I will say this in three three and a half years. I did five deployments in the marriage was shot so I you know not making any excuses whatsoever and certainly. Wasn't my ex spouses a problem. But it is a tough gig once you you kinda get your jump into these deployments and they get really intense because it's just hard to come back back in the reassembly do get along with your ex. Now I think so. I'm she doesn't but I do give a very good relationship right like I'll all cities when I go visit my children. The boys I state her house. Okay cool so I mean I think that is good as it's yeah. Well Yeah if you're staying there it can't be too fucking bad How in terms of your role and in relationship with your sons? I am curious with the amount of the time that you were gone operating in. You know active on behalf of uncle. Sam Do. Do you feel like you still have that. Superstrong father son relationship is more hit miss. You know that's a great question. I would say the first ten years of their lives. I failed to have that build that relationship. Asian ship as you would want from like a small child too apparent. I would say I failed in that. I didn't realize the importance of it in really. It's been the work of my younger son. My my my sixteen year old over the last six seventy years they come to me and said you have to work on our relationship. And he's he's a smart young man and he's actually actually helped me. Establish what I would call. I love my relationship with my sons now but he's done it in in when he had to teach me some lessons or really hard to swallow a he had to really tell me. We don't know you we don't trust you. You're not listening at like things I preach and when you hear that from your son unite in your smart kid and I gotta listen to you so really. He's built he's helped me rebuild l.. My relationship with my sons. It wasn't bad it was almost non-existent like cool uncle so it was more of a he.

So they're walking down the street and lots sees them. Now, I'm gonna just I want to give you the story. And I want you to listen to angels arrived at Sodom in the evening and lot was sitting in the gateway of the city when he saw them. He got up to meet them in bow down with his face to the ground. My lords please, turn aside to your servants house, you can wash your feet and spend the night and then go on your way early in the morning. No, they answered we'll spend the night in the square, but he insisted so strongly that they did go with him and entered his house. He prepared a meal for them baking bread without yeast, and they ate, but before they had gone to bed all of the men from every part of the city of Sodom both young and old surrounded. Lots house they called to lot. Where are the men that came to you tonight, bring them out? So we can have sex with them. Okay. So here's the demand of the radical revolution sexual revolution. Okay. Bring him out loud went outside to meet them and shut the door behind him and said, no, my friends don't do this thing. This is a serious metoo violation over talking about here. Look, I have this part of the story of never understood. I'm like, wait a minute lot. What are you doing? Don't do this wicked thing. Look, I have two daughters who have never slept with a man, let me bring them out to you. And you do what you like with them. But don't do anything to these men. They have come under my my under protection and under my roof. Your like a lot's daughters must be like, dad. What do I told you cleanroom say cleaning teenagers? Okay. So I never understood that let me phrase this with an offer to compromise. We'll find some middle ground. Okay. This is not good for me. I don't want to do this. But let's just compromise here. Okay. What happens get out of our way, they replied, this fellow came here as a foreigner. And now he wants to play judge talking to what you who. Are you to judge us? Get the hell out of our way. The false claim. You're judging me, we'll treat you worse than them. They kept bringing pressure on lot move forward to break down the door. But the minute side reached out and pulled lot back into the house and shut the door. So they have the meanness the threats coercion. You must participate. You must participate. It's not about sex. It's about you are not going to disagree with us. You're not going to judge us. You're not going. There is no compromise. We don't care about your daughters. You are not telling us what to do. Okay. Now. This story strangely is also found in judges, but not about Sodom and Gomorrah. Judges nineteen. You're welcome at my house. The old band said let me supply whatever you need only don't spend the night in the square. So we took him out to the house and fed is donkey's after they wash their feet. They had something to eat and drink basically the same story while they were enjoying themselves. Some of the wicked man of the city surrounded their house pounding on the door. They shouted at the old man who owned the house bring out the man who came to your house. So we can know him have sex with him again, the demand of the sexual revolution.

"The second I have a pretty good opinion on this. I think the things that that make somebody that that impressed me people were I emission mindset. And that is the idea that you get that you've got this mission, and the people are creative, but they're driven to accomplish it you've seen it in starting small businesses whatnot. You can almost feel it when you meet someone then there's the sense of IM part of team and the point of the team the purpose of the team is to accomplish something. But my sacred responsibility is to take care of the other members of that team. And so you get somebody who isn't necessarily easy going the best soldiers. I ever saw weren't always the ones that were sitting around and joking and whatnot. In fact, they might be little diff-. Difficult to get close to. But when you're really trying to do something that's extraordinarily difficult. And sometimes requires pushing other people at pull them to do it. They are the people who stand up and accept that responsibility. And I saw time and again that proved really important in a in a difficult combat varmint. I see you. I'm sure you see this in your company's after you've had a really rough days e union comrade, you guys that you work within your business. You gotta have humor. You know? We kind of joke. Somebody comes in and steals a bunch of stuff from us or someone breaks into your business. It's not fun. You kind of get through it with humor. And you kind of have that kind of report with your team. I want to ask you there. A stanley. What kind do you have jokes kind of humor and stuffing after you had a big fight, and you kind of calms down or what kind of stuff do you talk about when you're in between combat? You're definitely engaged in combat, but it's kind of a low for a few hours, and you're in a foxhole, and you're. What kind of what kind of conversations to you? Yeah. It's interesting because first humor is very very important. And I think even when people don't feel like being funny or they don't feel like being upbeat the cultures of good military organizations is that's the way you act because that's when you're expected to act. So even things are frightening or if they're rough frustrating or you could be yet, a tendency to be a little bit despondent because you think you might loosen. There's this cultural norm that says I'm gonna act up beat. I'm gonna make jokes evidence at trial because it's infectious. Everybody knows how everybody else feels you know, you don't have nobody sits around saying. Boy, I'm scared boy, I'm really worried about this. Everybody takes a sort of tongue in cheek attitude chapter Stander stand that's video. That's every what is also frighteningly serious Sam overs tougher for you starting your business that you around the dinner. Table or jumping out playing. That's a great question. I think starting a business because jumping out of the plan with something I had expected to do as I was growing up. I wanted to be a soldier.

I'd never thought about starting a business, and I thought, wow, it must be really hard.
