Aw heck, I could see that from my altitude. It's always fun to fly a big bird into a shit storm (dirt strip)- getting out can be more exciting. A) did the engines suck in too much dirt? Or B) did we land on the right strip? Heck- it might not be long enough to take off. Just random thoughts for flying into and outa shit disturbances. If the prof is near- tell him I am going up in this lightening. Monsoons.
It's a prototype. Got to have Bettie, would use wrong parts without!

He wants power, he wants it all. Selfish, not selfless leads to a leader that may be feared but not loved. Are we hearing from the Russian people? Are we hearing from the masses? We go after Russia because of Putin and the people who are suffering, endure more suffering. It would be nice to get the tip of the iceberg in this one.

Yes, and then there are the leaders that have less experience than their team. 2 choices- listen, lead based on experience and risks all agree on or lead with a deaf ear.

One moe thing 6- talked to 2nd highest level at bravura racy- great man- excellent service record- brighter than bright- he did the job, made excellent decisions, put out great policies- then at a change of the bureau- found out it wall all for naught. Huge lies involved.everything he thought he did, was never done. Biggest agency in the Country. What does this tell us?

I am not sure it works that way 6. In my field, we don't take the "doesn't play well with others". Progress and life saving situations, in my arena, depend on a certain amount of unity. I was talking to a guy a few weeks ago, I asked why he left after 16, didn't go for the 20- he had an asshole guy take over leadership. He walked. I've seen really superb units, teams and the entire intelligence community ripped apart by
A) don't play well with others-asshole
B). Won't listen to the more knowledgeable/experienced
C) changes timelines or agendas to cya
On a FUBAR long term plan- aka don't adapt
D) can't adapt- no flexibility
E) I could write much more.
My point 6- is that our country is in enormous deep h2o with the mil, beau cracked and the intelligence field has been ripped apart- shredded. Talk about a downed airliner in the 80's? Reminds me of what's going on here on our soil. Objectively- it is not one person or leaders fault. It's a broken system, lots of stupid policies, inertia, incompetency and a few other issues. Us- it can be fixed- but as some know- bad biz thrives and has a built in mechanism to survive. Trying to type an run. Excuse rant. No fuck that. I own it
@recon 6 @joesig that one liner was in response to u 2. Just chimin in. My lil device is throwing my comments to wrong folks. Dang it

@joesig- my. Comment was 4 u.
I am on the go- cant c what transpired. I've been in on the embassy pool- the flip side- the protected. Without going into detail- I've been the package a few times. If you have been on the security side. Thank you. From a gal on the go.

@KESStrong @joesig @Recon6 I suggest u meet GG Mason, if you have not already. He is a love of a man, but more than that excellent in policy and a great friend to know. Tag me up sometime, I will introduce you if you do not already know him. All the best, J
@KESStrong @joesig @Recon6 Good LUCK KES!
@KESStrong @joesig @Recon6 We've got wings. Fixed and rotary. Mount up babes. I mean you strong men.
@Recon6 @JHR I Love to step into the game when the shit is flying. Or the blender is twirling. Whatever. I find it interesting that insults ever have to be hurled. But I do it. I've done it a lot lately on a project. Had to "get into that mindset" of brutal badass and takedowns physically. There are lessons to be learned from violence and Peace. Those that can learn both, and admire and embrace objectivity- will always be winners in my mind. JMO. CU6

@joesig- enjoying your posts for the record. I am unable to get on here much, seems we see eye to eye on a few issues.

@majrod @JHR On paper- I agree with you. But in my experience, just watching Germans in the past 5 years, I believe they are stronger than most surmise. There has been a lot of whispers about "why" the U.S. is so concerned about "what" the Germans are up to. (this goes beyond the NSA stuff). The intelligence communities ears are up with them. I know, by my dealings with the Germans, they have a great understanding of the profile that is Putin and they know what to do with him.

@Fred82 @JHR @genefarnsworth It was very difficult for me to grasp for nearly a decade, but if we go to 33,000 feet and look down at Jihad terrorism and the spawning of it- most in intel would agree that these are all Irans' babies.

@Fred82 @YankeePapa @JHR @genefarnsworth So many fled the Shah and immigrated to Los Angeles.
An exquisite adventure. Can't wait to hear of the next. Thank you for making me feel more normal. Zip Ties, duck tape, other goodies- are always with me. Even in my picnic basket on the ranch. It really is better to be prepared than not.

This is getting to be a really big mess. The saddest part, is hearing that brothers are breaking their friendships over this. The even sadder part- is the break ups are fueled and well manned by a well oiled machine-known as politics. I don't know Matt, I don't know who advised him- but I think I know who should have advised him on this book deal. It looks to me like he was naïve to think he could pen a book under a pseudonym and not be outed. The second a best seller hits the shelves; there are 10 good journalists that will scour the Earth to find out the true identity behind the pseudonym within 24 hours. The horrific part of this situation is the unintended consequences. Knowing that peoples lives are in danger over this; this shit should have been reigned in at the highest levels from level zero.

@ColonelProp I think they are fed up and not full of shit. I wouldn't mess with them. JMO
@genefarnsworth I've thought about that in the sense of the mass exodus that left Iran and came into the U.S. in the late 70's and early 80's; now more than a few of those offspring are on watch lists- or have gone over for Jihad. If we had kicked ass- we may not seen such an influx of immigrants from Iran. It might have been a game changer. It might have prevented 9/11. What we see now as far as Jihad Terrorism- they are ALL Irans Babies.
@LawyerHandle I grew up in politics. We call this type of stuff "sweeping it under the rug". o "spin control"...God Forbid that the American People could know that the Iranians have enough power to pipe bomb a car on U.S, Soil- they just couldn't handle that-right?
Been going on since the beginning of time. Folks are disgusted about political cover-ups, yet if we look at the ME or a communist country- folks in many parts of many countries are not even allowed to watch the news. I'll take America any day.
@BrandonWebb Next thing for the loadout room. A Mr. Mom Shirt, coming soon.....
I am not well versed on this topic so I will go with my gut. I think the Germans need to step up and take this one on. They are capable, but will they act? As far as this 1988 incident mentioned in this article- I had a breakfast date a few months back with an old friend. We were talking shop and I asked him about MH370, just his random thoughts. His answer surprised me. He made a reference to this 1988 incident and waived his hand in the air- then drifted off into some mumble like well, we did it then; I thought someone did it again...blah....blah. he made no mention of who or why....but I was surprised. What surprised me is that I felt sucker punched. We did down The Iran plane. Yes, there was direct action taken. Who knows if we will ever know the "real" why of it. Listening to elders talk about these things leaves me with a heavy heart. Something needs to change. The problem is, we don't always have all of the information, so how can we "judge" a decision or action. A bigger problem, JMO, is that it is logical to conclude that if poor decision making is involved and continues to be involved, then it becomes incompetency and then chaos ensues. Last week I received a call from a friend in DC. She said "I am here and it is pure chaos". I don't think she was referring to the traffic.

@joesig @KESStrong @SEAN SPOONTS(MAFIA) @Barnes
Sincerely Joesig, I resent that comment. I do believe it would be a woman in an apron and Pearls baking a pie that would figure that one out "before too long". Tradecraft doesn't appear in magazines:-)

I gotta say- you don't rattle and that was funny. except, you can get maimed on a Shetland worse than an 18 hand warmblood. I'd rather fall than have a shit Shetland run full blast under a low hanging branch. You get the picture.
There's lots if new ideas, but the agencies are too full of fear to go for them.
@joesig @JHR @SEAN SPOONTS(MAFIA) @Barnes I hear you. I just disagree with airing it in public- as I think it has potential to bring attention to some issues/facts that normally would not be picked out or noticed- and thus used against at some point. My point- was to do it behind closed doors and if the authors don't respect what you are saying- won't listen- or will not respond and you felt your point is valid- someone with the clout whom they will listen to should make the call and contact if it is truly warranted. I've seen SOFREP pull articles before. Their integrity seems intact. I just think the way to go about this is not to air it in public. Yes, this is a public forum, but confidential elements that involve risk or threats are best taken up professionally and behind closed doors. To do so in public, only garners more attention and heightens risk and threat. JMO.
1 week, 4 days ago on Dear CIA: Thank You for Not Killing Me
@joesig @JHR @SEAN SPOONTS(MAFIA) @Barnes I've read your comments, all of them on here and actually agree with you on certain topics you have talked about- on other threads/topics. MY STFU comment was made as a statement to say "if a line has been crossed - there are channels in place to address this". A public forum is not the place to address crossing "that line", especially if it brings more unwanted attention to an already sensitive matter. If in fact information is given in journalism that creates a risk somehow and/or somewhere down a line creates a threat- the best way to approach that scenario is to quietly have the appropriate entity/person/people contact the author and deal with it. Professionals understand unintended consequences and are equipped to deal with it. There was an article pulled a few weeks ago just as it was going out- due to this exact reason-in a major publication by very well oiled journalists savvy in intelligence and warfare. Somebody caught it and said "you can't publish that" for a variety of reasons. The story was pulled/yanked. My point is that you are giving SOFREP/Jack advice on a subject, yet you are essentially doing the same thing by bringing attention to something you feel should not be publicized, or should be run by someone or a procedure for approval. This style of "teaching" you are dishing out in a public forum only draws more attention to the story at hand- which seems to make the issue you speak about more problematic and brings more heat to an ah-ha situation that you say may be breaking some codes. If there are concerns about what is said or revealed, it makes more sense professionally to have that guy/gal upstairs make a professional call to bring the issue to the authors attention.
@joesig @SEAN SPOONTS(MAFIA) @Barnes Here is another scenario joesig. Even though "there are no secrets anymore" as we say- one hand is not talking to the other. Our seamless info sharing is divided by a wide sea. Lets put some responsibility on a system with flaws. Where's the communication to Jack. Who had responsibility for that program and weapons and why wasn't Jack taken aside when he fired the weapons with the ammo. Where's the tracer on the ammo.. Maybe I agree with you on a few points, that's not for discussion here, as you very well know. Got a problem- have an email direct mailed to SOFREP. If you Don't have the seniority to do that?- then STFU. You may make excellent points- but this is not the way to bring them up. With all the leaks and not enough plugs to go around- you are drawing attention to an issue that you may think twice about bringing up in a public forum. If there is a serious issue at hand, bring it up privately through proper channels.
