Wow..our Facebook page is a complete disaster on this thread in the comments section…another reason I'm glad we went to a membership model.  This post was meant to perturb people and get the discussion going again. Mission accomplished I think.

@Jaycel Adkins @LawyerHandle Their new news site is an interesting concept based on adversarial journalism, which I like in theory. The big news media are often slave to "official DC leaks". The TV show House of Cards is more nonfiction then you think.

@majrod Well said. My concern is that  we're trying to do too much in the world and we can't keep our own house in order. Education, unemployment, healthcare, government….take your pic. Plenty to start fixing at home. Plus I'm more apt to agree with M. Ritland's rant on reducing our signature in the Middle East to next to nothing. We should discuss on the next radio show Rod.

Sorry I'm late to the party on the comments. Been playing Mr. Mom for the last week and loving every minute. 


The situation with Iran is always highly stressful. I can remember doing non-compliant ship boardings on tankers smuggling oil out of Iraq and there was always tension…and that was 1999. I can only imagine what it was like during the Reagan era. I'm sure US crews were on high alert but pretty sloppy to shoot down a passenger jet in my opinion. Although I'd trade the Reagan admin. for Obama in a heart beat.

Thanks for sharing this with SOFREP Derek. I've found that it's not only therapeutic to share these stories, it also ensures the memory and sacrifice our friends have made will be remembered by others who share their stories.

@LawyerHandle The policy is administered by the company that held the contract with the CIA. He's covered under that policy and CNA will not give him a copy. Same goes with the Doherty estate, they cannot get the CIA to turn over his contract or get a copy of the insurance papers from what I've been told.

The CIA Team Leader and leadership at the local level have some blame with this treatment as well. They need to re-think how they back these guys, the same ones protecting their lives when the shit hits the fan.

I've seen a lot of these play out and while there's no excuse I can say that Chris's brother handled it about as best as he could given the situation. Admit the wrong doing and take your lumps, which is more then I can say for a lot of American politicians.

All we ask is that you look at our track record, our past accomplishments, and who we (and who Kilbane) surround ourselves with and arrive at your own conclusion. And the fact that we put this out in the open for everyone to see and judge when we could have been silent.

Apologies for the un-corrected version of this post which had some typos, most likely because the answers were sent via smart phone. We just caught it…Updated and as they say in the Army, "we are beating our boots…"

@skydivingisfun @Mrod05 I think it's fair to say that the CIA had a pretty good idea of his whereabouts. They've been in that AO for over a decade now and Viagra, (yes this is used as a barter tool)  the offer of US citizenship and the almightily dollar buys a lot of information.

Reply

I'm glad Kilbane publicly wrote a reply (see link below), it's great material for the trial, and shows how off his thinking is. One thing is clear, his lawyer doesn't know defamation law. 


He's smart to make this solely about me, and not SOFREP but he's named SOFREP in the suit. He's made his bed and will now sleep in it. 


We've given his attorney everything they've requested, including a sworn statement from the account rep at the company he refers too regarding how they never heard of Kilbane and that they chose to do business with us because we were a veteran owned business with original content not because of the video in question. There is no 800k contract. I think Kilbane heard 800k in proposed business and thought he had a SOFREP Lotto ticket. That's when he got weird and I cut him loose. 


I've heard that his old production company Digital Ranch was threatened by him in the same fashion with regards to a Discovery channel series they worked on together. I think that's Kilbane's MO, and leverage point. Threaten a  large business relationship and get a company to settle for large dollars. Not going to happen here Kilbane, we'll see you in court and judged by a jury of your peers. 


You can tell a lot by the company a man keeps, and the fact that the estate of Chris Kyle and my friend Chris Osman stood by me when solicited by Kilbane and his BS lawsuit speaks volumes. 


Thanks for all the continued support everyone. We'll have an update soon.
