Guest Name(s): Jack Devine
Jack Devine’s first appearance on SOFREP Radio was full of amazing insight from the former Acting Director and Associate Director of the CIA’s operations outside the U.S. For that, we had to meet him in person, and it was an honor to do so during Episode 326 — Jack did not disappoint. We get into government intervention (particularly in Afghanistan), and the concept of nation building at large. Jack is a proponent of intervention and defends the U.S. going into Afghanistan, but takes issue with the occupation that followed.
Jack’s three decades at the CIA also included the fight against international communism, which he reveals will be included in his next book. We also talk about Russia’s interfering with the 2018 U.S. Presidential election and he seems to have a different take than previous guests on the podcast. Jack’s book, out now, is “Good Hunting: An American Spymaster’s Story” and people (including our own Jack Murphy) are very impressed by its content, so be sure to pick it up. Jack Devine is currently the President of The Arkin Group, and you can follow him on Twitter @JackDevine_TAG. Be sure to let him know what you thought of his appearance here on SOFREP Radio.
