For most Americans, the deadly attacks by Ansar al-Sharia on the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi were their first exposure to anything relating to the CIA’s Protective Operations Cadre. CIA Officer Thomas Pecora, however, was there during it’s inception. With an incredibly impressive resume, he’s been involved in Mogadishu, the resurgence of Abu Sayyaf in the Philippines, and the hunt for Osama Bin Laden. We discuss the span of his career which will be covered in much greater detail when his book “Guardian: Life in the Crosshairs of the CIA’s War on Terror” hits shelves on May 7th of next year. We highly recommend you pre-order what is sure to be a book breaking new ground in areas never written about prior to now.

Beyond this exclusive in-depth interview, we discuss propaganda coming out of China, a tragic military death in Bahrain, and Marine combat veteran and Congressman Duncan Hunter Jr. now facing charges in misusing $250K in campaign funds. All that and more on Episode 410!
