During recent air travel in the Middle East, I was taking advantage of a rare opportunity to get caught up on some dated emails, reading and reflection. Reflection, for me, is the return, rebirth or rediscovery of a crucial part of my personal thought and decision making process that has proven "therapeutic" in a lifestyle that is built for speed. The re-addition of … [Read more...] about Airline Security: Reflections Of A Lost Line In The Sand

In case you missed this the first time around.... Terrorist and other high value criminals aren't as dumb as they look!

Unfortunately, over time - even dumb people learn a thing or two. These guys have become pretty … [Read more...] about Hamas Covert Communication Techniques Exposed
In light of the most massive black out ever, with over 620 million Indians sitting in the dark (pue wee!) - that's like TWO United States having a black out at the same time! I thought it would be important to throw out some tips on how to prepare for a blackout - after all, we are in the middle of the "blackout season." Some of this is obvious but common sense isn't always … [Read more...] about Black Out! India Yesterday; Maybe You Tomorrow!
The Cold War is done, finish, ka las, no more - right? Not even close! Russia has been recovering, expanding, and sneaking into just about every headline with little or no attention. As usual, I like to identify threats ahead of time; or in this case, an old threat. Walls came down, lessons were learned, and the cunning Russia has moved back into our lives, or at least … [Read more...] about Russia! SOFREP is Watching You!

I had the fortunate opportunity to spend some time with the son of Col. Joseph Christiano, an AC-47D pilot during Vietnam. Jeff Christiano, the Colonel's son, grew up anticipating his father's return and now, 45 years later, his dad is home. Jeff is a great man, father, and son who wins hearts and minds of inner city kids through his powerful personality, incredible humor, … [Read more...] about A Great Story – The Crew of an AC-47D Recovered
As mentioned in Part 1 and Part 2, the spotlight is pointed at Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) - they have proven to be a very organized and lethal group of terrorists. Pakistani Intelligence is responsible for their creation, funding, and training.

Lashkar-e-Taiba or LeT (because its a stupid set of words to try and pronounce) is actually a concerning terror group worth pushing out of the closet, yes, the closet.
