A Green Beret's Perspective on ISIS in Iraq

Guest Name(s): Rich Graham

Listen to SOFREP Radio on iTunes Listen to SOFREP Radio on BuzzSprout

Jack Murphy hosts this episode and gives you a very legit US Army Ranger/Green Beret’s perspective on ISIS in Iraq. Jack trained the indigenous people fighting alongside our troops over in Iraq, and has covered the terrorist group for quite some time. His insights are based on years of his own experiences.

Our very special guest is Rich Graham, former Navy SEAL and founder of Trident Fitness. Trident Fitness focuses on weight training, firearms instruction and more. Rich is especially very well-versed on kettle bells. You can check out Trident Fitness on their website or on Twitter @TriFitKB. Rich also gives his take on the Jesse Ventura lawsuit – his view is a bit different than what you might expect.

Jack and I also get into your e-mails. We review reader mail every week, so keep sending them in to [email protected],

We appreciate your continued listening and support. Please leave a review for us on iTunes, and we encourage you to become a member of SOFREP.com if you haven’t already because that directly supports the show.

    Looks like the Sunni tribal groups in West Iraq are offering a deal with new Iraqi PM.  At an emergency EU meeting in Brussels, the 28 member-states were left to decide individually whether they would arm Iraq's Kurds, the main opponent of IS in the north. Separately, fighting has flared up in mainly Sunni Anbar province, west of Baghdad, parts of which have been under IS control. FYI: http://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-28808992

    . ...Speaking of ISIS, it seems that they are threatening to kill an American preacher from Boise... in a prison in Iran...  Al Qaeda types making the same threats... odd story... . http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/Saeed-Abedini-Iran-prison-ISIS/2014/08/13/id/588567/ . -YP-
