Guest Name(s): Kris Paronto
On this very special episode, we are in studio in New York City on 9/11, paying tribute to the men and women who lost their lives 15 years ago in this same city when the Twin Towers were taken down by radical Islamic terrorists. Hosting this one are former Army Ranger and Green Beret Jack Murphy, and former Marine and CIA operative Drew Dwyer. Drew recently had the honor to work at the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, and he talks about it with us. You’ll hear where the guys were on that day, how it affected them, how it affected foreign policy from their perspective, and where they see things headed from here based on their knowledge.
Also, of course, there was another event that took place more recently on 9/11 in 2012, and that was in Benghazi, Libya. We’ll hear from our friend and one of the guys who was there, Army Ranger and CIA contractor Kris “Tanto” Paronto. Kris tells us about the anger this day brings out in him, and the PTSD he’s endured since. He gets into who saved him that day, and what he’d like to say to this presidential administration.
You don’t want to miss this one. We dedicate this episode to those who perished in the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, in Benghazi, and in the Global War on Terrorism.
