@Annica @SOFREP @Ragnarok76 @JackMurphyRGR Annica, we appreciate your support.  If you've only got $20 bucks left in your pocket than we don't want it.  Please don't worry about that.

@Ragnarok76 @JackMurphyRGR Fair enough.  I don't think this program, or even the Team Room, is for every reader.  In the meantime I'll be doing my best to make both SOFREP and the Team Room much better in the coming months.  I hope you'll enjoy the changes!

Hey folks, I heard there have been some disgruntled members recently.  I want to hear what you think, both about the Team Room and about the SOFREP 300.  Please feel free to let me know what you like and what you don't  I see the Team Room as being what you guys want it to be so don't hold back.  Also, let me elaborate a bit on what I think of the matter.


I think the Team Room provides some good value for our members, but honestly, not enough.  By being a Team Room member you get access to the chat feature, all of our ebooks, forums, and some other stuff.  I think that's great, but not good enough.  I've been getting our staff of writers to participate in the chat room more often so that they are there to answer any follow up questions you guys have about their articles.  We will soon have the ISIS ebook we wrote up in the Team Room.  The next step is more insider baseball type articles that are exclusive to the team room.  This is something that Charlie and I have been discussing over the last few days.


Next, I think we need to hash out any concerns about the SOFREP 300.  I will be writing a monthly newsletter and will facilitate a Q&A with me, or any of our other writers.  If there is anything else you'd like to see from me and Brandon aside from the stuff already listed, please respond here and let us know.  Thanks everyone!

@jpowell Thanks for providing the real deal for us, you know it way better than I do.  Of course all of the frauds are still under "deep cover" so they can't be verified!

@MerkMan Obviously they should have done more due diligence, but if the Air Force goes to the CIA and asks them to confirm or deny someone who is/was clandestine, the CIA is under absolutely no obligation to do so and probably won't.

@LawyerHandle It is odd but that is how these frauds operate.  They gain the trust of people who don't have their guard up.

@Waterborne As much as I dislike Gore…I think this qualified as an alarmist statement.  Impoverished millions of Americans?  Trillions in higher taxes?  Maybe if Gore got what he wanted, but I think you are giving him way too much credit.

This is a great article.  I concur on all points.  One of our biggest flaws is that we are purely reactive without having any long term goal for what we want the future to look like.

I've gotten some questions as to which companies McInerney is involved in.  Here is a partial listing: NETSTAR SYSTEMS INC, STAND UP AMERICA, SIGNAL TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION, NETSTAR SYSTEMS INTERNATIONAL, INC, NETSTAR SYSTEMS INC, MCINERNEY GROUP, SABA SOFTWARE INC.

@ColonelProp And while we are on the topic…lets bring up the so-called intelligence summit.  Take a look at http://www.intelligencesummit.org.  Why in the world would everyone from McInerney to James Woolsey choose to associate with this organization is beyond me.  The topics on the site include "Muslim Cannibalism" and loads of Anti-Catholic conspiracy theory non-sense.  Check out this gem I pulled off the front page:

@traumamama I really think that the UW mission is a game for soldiers who are 30+ years old.  I was too young when I was in SF.  That said, Special Forces is much much younger as a force than it was 10-15 years ago.

@chrisdewart That is about my estimation as well Chris.  It gets kind of quiet when you go on a conservative news channel and say, "yeah, the guys who are really bringing the fight to ISIS is the socialist workers party…"  I can't and won't support Marxist ideology or any acts of terrorism that the PKK has carried out in the past but I have to applaud what they've done to protect the people of Iraq from ISIS.

@chris_hernandez_author I will say that I've had two other people come forward to tell me the story of the suicide attack is true and did happen in Rojava, but this is something that still needs to be followed up on.

@ColonelProp It was a great time.  The Swiss have a very effective system to say the least but with the militia system I think they also struggle with professionalism.  I don't mean in the sense of immaturity but in the sense that the troops have limited time to devote to soldiering.

@Weekends It is also a question of maturity.  We seem to be regressing in America.  Swiss soldiers can handle carrying their weapons around town.  Recalling many of the young American soldiers I knew in basic training and elsewhere in the Army, I wouldn't trust them to carry a sharp object in public much less a rifle.

I was once in a study group in college for a final exam with one Chinese American and two Chinese nationals from the mainland.  We were having a conversation about China and I asked about Falun Gong and what the real deal was with them.  You could have heard a pin drop in the room.  I didn't realize it at the time but as you mention, overseas students are used as spies.  One of their main functions is to monitor Chinese dissident groups trying to organize over seas.  The reason for the silence is that they knew that whatever they said would get reported to higher...
