"The first one comes from Nineteen seventy-nine gentleman. Whose name is Bobby Garwood. Private Bobby Garwood. He returned to the United States and seventy nine after fourteen years living as a prisoner of war. Now does he. He says cleans that he was one of many soldiers still being held in Vietnam and several other countries in the Jason Area. Like you said Ben Laos several others so the United States denied these allegations and furthermore they claim. The garwood was actually a collaborator. He was in on the whole thing. He wasn't a prisoner that who went over the hill and turned coat right. He was reportedly released in. Nineteen seventy three with some other American. Pow's but he did not return to the United States until March. Twenty second nineteen seventy nine During that time he was listed as either having volunteered. Been forced into a work group. repairing generator At a re education camp other reports described him as working in island fortress or being driver and vehicle mechanic low when he gets back in seventy nine over a period of eleven months. He faces a general court martial a Camp Lejeune North Carolina because other Marines testified like other not just marines but other servicemembers testified seeing him inaction with VC with the wrong so he He was found not guilty of desertion or solicitation of US troops in the field to defect Or Maltreatment He was convicted in. Nineteen eighty-one of communicating with the enemy and the assault of an American. Pow at a camp on that violates the uniform code of military justice. He was the court martial sentenced to reduction to a private forfeiture of all pay allowances dishonorable discharge. But he was not confined. He appealed his conviction was upheld. Robert Garwood says that he saw other American. Pow's seventy three and he insists that he himself had been prisoner from fourteen years Many of the POW's who claim to have seen them collaborate with the enemy also feel should not have been court martialed. Because that's the thing you know. If if he is if he was imprisoned in which is a story that the American public will probably never know in full. If it was imprisoned was he forced to cooperate or did he choose to. You know it gets. It gets sticky so So according to this guy and according to the people who believe that there were purposely abandoned. Pow's or servicemembers In in country after seventy-three this guy's being silenced because he's telling the truth but to other people to critics of that belief she is trying to cover his own. You know covers on High Court. Yeah which a at this point you can you can easily go down a rabbit hole of who said what what happened. Where but the facts remain. He was not convicted of collaborating with the enemy. Then we have an investigation led by John Carey in Nineteen ninety-one Senator Kerry Was the head of a select committee. Investigation into the intelligence services process Searching for remaining. Pow's in Vietnam. There were two former defense secretaries. Melvin Laird and James Schlesinger who said the Nixon administration most definitely knew that there were still. Pow's in Vietnam after the close of Operation Homecoming the investigation also revealed that thousands of files from the NSA on missing soldiers which were written during the war were completely ignored by intelligence services after the war And then after two years the carry committee came to the conclusion that there was no compelling evidence that any American soldiers were still being held a not just in Vietnam but in any South East Asian countries felt this was definitively the case and then a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist. Sydney Shamburg accused the committee of assisting in government. Cover up And I mean if you're going to have a government cover up what better smokescreen for than a you know tireless investigation that supposedly puts all of these concerns to bed just like JFK assess nation. Just like the nine eleven commission. We got away of something around for the public to latch onto and say. Oh No it's fine. See See all this These are very long names. Yes and I know. That sounds flippant but for people who were opponents of that investigation or thought it was a cover up This was the it was exactly the same kind of tactic right. And it's very important to say that what we're doing is exploring the differing views of the side. We're not casting aspersion on any service member or any government official. We're just telling you where these people stand on what they say where they disagree and the people who said that this was a cover-up these were not fringe members of society. You know as said Pulitzer. Prize winning journalist. This became an increasingly common belief. It was a very unpopular war People were at people were at odds on all sorts of levels and distrust of the government was very high so of course. It seems like something that would happen. You know in the one of the big questions would be well. What is the motivation? And so when the official narrative came Came down and no veterans like John Kerry veteran writer John McCain veterans these these of former military members who were serving in federal government came back and said you know we gave it our best shot. We tried to figure out what was going on. And this is what we found. Even then people wouldn't believe the whole story. They felt like this was all spoken mirrors. And this got another I guess another dose of high octane conspiratorial fuel just Delete during the During the investigation in Nineteen ninety-two the belief that there were abandoned soldiers or remaining. Pow's got a new burst of high octane. Conspiratorial fuel at a summit June Fifteenth Nineteen ninety-two. Boris Yeltsin was talking to NBC News. And this was reported by the New York Times and apparently he said that some Americans captured during the Vietnam. War Repair early transferred from Hanoi to Labor camps in the Soviet Union and he added that some of them may still be alive at that time possibly in psychiatric hospitals. Ladies and gentlemen we have a A clip from that conversation yes. Nbc What you want. Yes Mister Yeltsin. For years there have been rumors in the United States that American? Pow's from the Vietnam War would transferred from Vietnam to the Soviet Union. Do you know that to be true now? Orcas have shown that it is through. Some of them were transferred to the territory of the former. Us's are some were kept in Labor Games. Now we don't have complete data and we can only surmise. That some may still be alive. That is a bomb. Dropped right in the in the American public in the heart of the American consciousness which That anatomy metaphor doesn't check out. So don't think about it too much But we do want to say you have to have a diplomat like. They're a at the time was he. Prime Minister a high level for an official to have had to say this was during glasnost kind of peace offering to I do want to win everybody out there listening to know that we had a very indepth conversation about who should do the X. outflows try not to crack but You you guys would make great re-enactors you know. Maybe maybe we should get into reenactments ren fest all man boy johnny strict out of the end Johnny dangerous strict. So yes who would be soldiers have been? This is a strange thing. I followed up offline with some military sources to ask about this and people who asked not to be identified on the show so the people I spoke with believed that the US probably did leave some people behind but not not on purpose like not as a institutional thing you don't get elected president and some it gives you an envelope and says never ask about these missing six hundred people or something. What they said happened is that anybody take into the USSR. Who has captured would have to be a high value intelligence agent of some sort so maybe a company man in the CIA maybe military naval intelligence because otherwise what what would be the use of that expensive and dangerous transport you know and they would probably take them by boat instead of by plane because if a boat goes down there's lot less evidence than if a plane goes down. I can imagine it being a a an implanted agent maybe even so specifically was captured to be taken there if possible? I know that sounds insane. Sounds like something you would never happen but I can imagine it being like a something. That happens A setup turncoat of some way off a double agent. Yeah and it's tough to know it's tough to know where someone's real allegiances lie. Or if they have real allegiances that a double double cross I was China. Many crosses are being doubled. Their yeah is a quadruple cross. I Dunno chip across No. Let's only quadruple cross? I guess it just depends on when you want to stop or when they stopped believing theoretically go on crossing indefinitely it. Just be like the most the most untrustworthy person. It can only last four times. I think eventually they're just going to get tired of it Which would be very dangerous. But a lot of times these people if so we know is probably percentage of the missing people but of that small percentage of went there. There is very well could have been a living. Hell you know what I mea. Especially if they possess secrets that exist only in their in their minds The private secrets of one of the world's great superpowers. That's very dangerous. Collection of thoughts stab ownership over. And because of questions like this right because Boris Yeltsin admits that there were people spirited away because they're continual or they're they're numerous radio intercepts. Say No we've seen people living or there are people in country who say oh. I've seen this guy's not Vietnamese wisey living in this cave in these ripped up close and also to a degree in cultural consciousness because of you know the stories of World War Two survivors especially in the Japanese army who were living as though the war never ended and in some cases didn't know it had Because of all these cases it seems not impossible that there could have been people left behind weather purposely or accidentally or whether it's beyond anyone's control butts several of the privately funded expeditions by veterans. Loved ones survivors Several of those expeditions got dogged by accusations of fraud. People would say well the government being this big inefficient bureaucracy is not gonna be able to effectively do this or they don't care because what is one human life in the Great Abbot Twat of geopolitics so with the best of intentions people got together. And said we're GONNA go find this and we're going to search either for following up on evidence of living. People are following up on evidence of remains and not in all cases but in many cases you would see stories of someone accepting a bunch of money buying a boat and the boat never left the dock entirely up and they.

2020 Democratic Presidential Candidates Visit Hollywood

"California presidential primary is less than two weeks. Away and Democratic candidates are in a mad dash to raise money and improve their name recognition. And where better to build both than in Hollywood. Ted Johnson is the Washington correspondent for deadline where he covers politics and entertainment. Ted Welcome back to the frame. Thank you for having so who came to town? And what did they do? Well Amy Klobuchar was at the home of Lorraine Sheinberg. She's the widow of Sydney Shamburg. Who was very top executive at universal and also very politically active and in his career and the rain. Sheinberg played the wife to officer Brody in Jaws yes And it kind of speaks to. What type of support she's getting. People were moderates in the entertainment industry. Probably a little older than you may see from some of the Bernie Sanders side and then p. Buddha judge is in town on Thursday. They've been out here raising money at the home of Seth Macfarlane who is very enthusiastic about his support for the former South Bend Mayor. It's also being co-hosted by league. Annuals I assume most of these events are relatively similar. You pay a couple of bucks you show up at somebody's house maybe get a photo shake hands and here twenty minutes speech. Do they all fall? Pretty much under that same pattern. Yes pretty much. So it's usually the candidate delivering a variation on their stump speech that you can hear in public on the campaign trail sometimes throwing in a few insider risk comments and sometimes doing acuity with donors who are the kinds of people who are hosting these events and are they aligned with one candidate or do. They spread their love around. You are seeing some of that but I think what really distinguishes. This presidential cycle past ones is here. We are just two weeks out from Super Tuesday and there are a lot of those traditional donors. The people who've been involved cycle after cycle who have not declared their support for one candidate or the other. I'm thinking people like Steven Spielberg Jeffrey Katzenberg. Hyme Savan these people who are incredibly involved in what they have done This cycle is. They either sat it out or just spread their money around among multiple candidates so as an observer. It's a it can be a little confusing. Just because someone has given to a candidate does not necessarily mean that. They're going to vote for that person or they're going to endorse a lot of people are just seeing how this plays itself out. We're talking with deadlines Ted Johnson about campaigning for president. In not that long ago I remember and you do as well the town being pretty much split between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama during the primaries has one candidate really kind of gone to the top in terms of leading Hollywood attention and money right now. Well it's interesting because if you look at the numbers Comma Harris actually is collected more money from the entertainment business than any other candidate. But she's not even in the race anymore. She's followed by people to judge who is raised. I think it's one point. Two million so far from the entertainment business is quite extraordinary that he's raised that amount. Given that a year ago he was unknown and he came in and really became kind of a darling of the entertainment industry very quickly that I think. A lot of donors a saw his candidacy as potentially historic he'd be the first LGBT president and they really won over by his message. They say hey. We see shades of Barack Obama in people to judge now also shouldn't discount Bernie Sanders. He's raised close to nine hundred thousand for the entertainment business for his campaign and he has a very enthusiastic number of supporters people. Like Adam McKay and Susan Sarandon and Mike. I'm war. They're out there on the campaign trail for him. It's just that he is not relying on these types of high dollar fundraisers to finance his campaign. He's is doing it through these small dollar contributions in his messages. Definitely resonating even in the elite circles of Hollywood but I have to add that. It's also tends to be the left side of Hollywood as opposed to the center La. So let's talk about the right side of Hollywood. It isn't very big but have there been any conservative people in the industry who have come out and said things in favor of or given money to president trump we have people who have come out in favor of trump. Benham with him very publicly from the star. People Jon voight. There is a reluctance to come out publicly in support president trump because there is a lot of blowback. I've talked to trump supporters. Who said they just don't want their names associated with him because things are so polarized at this time but if Bernie Sanders nominee will see. I've talked to centrist donors who are very concerned about sanders getting the nomination. They won't come out and say that that is going to force them into trump's hands. They'll they'll say I'm just GONNA sit it out if he ends up being the nominee but we'll see and once the primary in Nevada is over. Will there be a return of candidates coming back to La looking for more support now yet Joe Biden was post to have an event this week in southern California but that was rescheduled. Because he has to spend so much time on the campaign trail after a pretty dismal performance. In Iowa and New Hampshire. But we're now getting down to just a week away not just from Super Tuesday but also from the South Carolina. Vote so this is. This is crunch time for these campaigns in taking them off the campaign trail has to be a very Savvy calculation that it is going to end up being worth it to fly into California for our fundraiser will probably see the candidates flocked to California not this weekend but the following weekend for those first couple days before Super Tuesday. Ted Johnson is the Washington correspondent for deadline where he covers politics and entertainment. Ted thanks so much for coming back on the

"School. In one month I was working also so regular job and I happen to be in the same industry <hes> in this case it's signed manufacturing so illuminated signage and brandings things like that so we were working in the same building because the company he's with here in Germany was kind of a partner company <hes> with the one in South Carolina that I was working for we had a lot in common in the fact that we were both pursuing our bachelor's degrees at an older age and we were both nontraditional students being older having worked in deciding if as time goes back to school and continue working so we've had that fulltime work Fulton School stress and you know the things that go along with that we we really hit it off since humorwise <hes> we have a lot of common interests and so one one thing led to another I traveled back and forth with him between here in Nuremberg Germany where we live now and Stockholm Sweden would we would usually come over twice a year for a couple of weeks and just go to both places so I knew I loved it here. It always felt more like back home to me over here than it did the state I it's hard to explain to people who don't understand that as a concept so you know when you say that people will be how is that possible wait. How un-american are you? What's wrong with you yeah exactly exactly right so well? What about what about your family? What about everything familiar but I mean how do you explain what you are somewhere else that actually that feels more familiar at home exactly exactly exactly like I I used to assume assume that if somebody way went to the extent to live and work overseas for an extended period of time that they didn't either like or necessarily fit in or want to be in their passport country and in doing these interviews I accidentally into the made that assumption one too many times and hit a few people that didn't fall into that so now I actually have to ask people and you think the trouble of asking this time but at the first time it happened? I just kind of went. Wait if you'd like back home easier to live in your home country. Why are you you hear what why are you going through? All of am I the only ones having this more difficult emotional experience sometimes when I'm overseas like what okay so both you and your husband are experts in Germany were after three years. Do you guys consider yourselves immigrants now are you there permanently well. He had actually lived here in Nuremberg for six years before he went to the states. So when we moved and twenty fifteen it was coming back Sydney Shamburg for him. It's it's hard to put that label on their. You know the expert versus immigrants and like your term of the G._O._P.. I have no intention of going back to the states like my dream honestly is to Holden E._U.. Passport one day and so I don't plan to do anything to ruin that for myself by going going back this. We've also bought an apartment here that will be finished not even until twenty twenty so we have long-term plans to be here so yeah I mean I guess maybe immigrant is the better term at that point. I don't know when you plan to be permanent. I don't I ooh. How do you define that? Honestly I just I used the ex pat term just to catch as many people who are familiar with that term although to be fair requested a review on one of my podcast last week and one of the I comment he said and I have to be careful now in having Americans were reading my podcasts because a lot of people just don't know life outside the U._S. and his first comment was what is an ex pat is it a veteran and I was like Oh internet net google. It's probably going to be the first definition of pop up like the most common definition pops up. I Mike really that's where you're put. That's where your questions are and being in this world. It's like you know this word. You know this term no the things that are attached to it so it was just like Oh gosh never mind so from your first year in Germany to now approaching your third that your third anniversary do you do things online differently from the first year this year. That's a hard question because it's hard to to know if I'm doing anything differently because of the whole thing or if it's just changes in interests and the things that I wanted pursue I guess is so I mean most of what I do. Online is centered around travel or food and cooking somehow that's what I'm interested in and so that's that in the whole expert experiences audiences so those were not interest that you had before coming to Germany no they definitely were. I've always been interested in travel and food and so those things yes we're always prominent but now travel feels more accessible to me just because of where I am it is easier to get around when you're in your the whole time I was in the states whenever I would go back from having been here in Europe either Sweden Germany. I just felt sick about it. Really I did not want to go home. It was terrible feeling and so when I was there I was constantly living for tomorrow essentially living for that next trip and so that would consume my thoughts kind of and so yes before I moved to Germany I was constantly looking at travel things and travel planning and and this and but now it's different. It's the different shifts because I I have a more comfortable sense of place here. You know I feel more at home and ease but I also feel more mobile here. The other big switch is that I am working remotely only here and in the states I was an office so in general I feel freer here and I think because of that. There's like a shift that happens almost to where I don't know just feel more like a part of the travel community. Even if I'm not constantly on the road yeah it does it does. There's there's something beautiful about free time. It's not just about the time but it also frees up your head space to do things differently think differently for lax and yeah absorbed stuff. I can't speak for all Americans are for all anybody that lives in the U._S.. But I feel like it's a lot of crazy making it's a lot of hurry up and Emergencies and oh my gosh and just like this very hectic kind of thing which is crazy to say well. I'm sitting in Shanghai because this is super fast paced buzzy kind of like innovative people shoving each other out of the way to get to the front on the line kind of place right now but I still feel like it's way more relaxed than being in the U._S. and feeling like gave constantly drowning. Yes I completely understand that. I think maybe that has to replace a sense of where you're more comfortable. I mean maybe Shanghai is technically more fast paced city than in many places in the U._S.. Yes but if that's where you feel more comfortable and more or at home it's going to feel still like a zen quality to it's. It's just different than you accepted almost thrive in that environment versus. You just lost my trying to fog but pass part of it onto because I just had this this. This really crazy thought okay obsessed. No I really like the travel writer Pico Ir. Have you read any of his stuff now. Did you have a Mona podcast. I probably highlighted in one of the episodes like early early on because I tend to talk about him way too much his his parents are from India he grew up in coastal California and U._K.. And lives in Japan intentionally now with his partner possibly his wife I don't remember their relationship and he says he really likes flipping Japan because because he knows he will never be considered a local and so he has the mental space to be him without the expectation of the cultural expectations of being everything that you're supposed to be there and I really wonder as as an ex powder immigrant if if we always have that space to be to be more different than the locals do because we're never even if we're expected to learn languages or conform to some degree. We're always going to be different because we're not from there. That's that's very good thought yeah. I think that probably does play into it. You you do have that extra just space to be yourself yeah. That's that's really interesting yeah. No He's brilliant. He's absolutely brilliant. I tend to like listening to him in his speeches and interviews more than books although his books are really good like global soul is one of the books that I where I finally realized there's more to like the the emotional and mental side of travel is super-duper intense and it's Kinda like started to spell it out for me instead of just kind of going. This feels very different than the rest of my life. It was like oh it really is there. Someone who's writing about it explicitly so yeah I love him but he's still in traveled category ninety nine percent of the time because because he does do travel pieces but his longer works are very ex-pat immigrant oriented and very deep down dirty emotional and they're beautiful well. I'm also wondering if being online in our online persona gives us that ability ability to exist in a different way I think so yes because you can curate what you are doing. You can choose what to look at. You can choose what to engage with you can choose what you want to create and then publish online and the Nice thing about the Internet too is that it gives us all platform. If you want to be involved with something you just have to do it. It's that simple. You know. You want to be a travel writer than start writing about travel. You know whatever it is and that's that's great. There's a lot of competition yes but the faces there so if you just get out there and do it now. You've mentioned writing a few times and I wanNA dig into that. What do you write a while not enough really? I tend to talk about a my intentions to write a lot more than I do actually right but I I have a blog <hes> eat something go somewhere dot COM and it's it's very small. I mean I'm very much still trying to grow it and get enough content on there to make it worthwhile but yeah I like to write about food and travel and thoughts think I tweeted that you wanted. I want want to write something about this kind of conversation. I have yet to do that. I've always enjoyed writing and it's it's kind of the one thing that I'm okay doing and spy actually sit down and I can't put my thoughts together then. It's something that I enjoy and how long have you been doing that not very long long ipad this since I think my subscription renews in May so about a year and a half it's been there..
