McMaster is considered one of the brightest military thinkers on active duty. His career even going back to the first Gulf War is infamous. Note, many of you are familiar with his exploits at the Battle of 73 Easting. I have personally followed his career since he was a Captain. The work he advocated doing in post 2003 Iraq should …

Secret Service Fake Arm to Hide Rifle?

Now that former President Obama has crossed the finish line, folks like me can breathe a sigh of relief. Somewhat. He’s still the President that “killed” Usama Bin Landen. There will always be those who would like to take a run at him. Mostly foreign nationals. Mostly. But like many security professionals I was worried. Very worried. Eight years ago, …

Police Snipers 2016 Republican National Convention

IS THE US ELECTION RIGGED ?

I think “rigged” is a bit too strong and maybe misleading. I do not believe there is any concerted attempt by those who run boards of elections to create a bias, to “rig” the election.   But, the Founders of the USA believed, and stated, that the system depended on an “informed electorate” making their choices as free people.   …

I’ll never tell. (sic) But I digress… Very recently I was the fly on the wall to a very interesting conversation about the above picture. …
