Hi folks, just wanted to let everyone know that Stu and I will be on the Leonard Lopate show tomorrow, Monday May 5th. The show airs at 11 am Central time but will be archived as well. You can access the broadcast though the following options:
It should be interesting, Mr. Lopate covers a broad range of topics including writer and author interviews and the dialog will likely be broader than my more recent interviews which have generally been with hosts very much focused on covert and clandestine operations.
I haven’t seen any posts here from readers of Shadow Warfare, perhaps its too early – after all it is a 600 page book.
Shadow Warfare has done well in library sales and at retail but not nearly well enough in Amazon sales – not sure why. Given how much time went into digging out the actual details of intelligence agency operations, especially those of the Plans and Operations folks, I would have expected more people wanting to dig into that area. Its also surprising that there seems to be little media interest in the deep background of contemporary covert and special operations, including those in the war on terror (now in transition from being referred to as overseas contingency operations to a variety of ops using “shield
in their descriptor). I suppose I shouldn’t be too frustrated though. In Shadow Warfare we present a Benghazi scenario relating covert Libyan activities to Syria. A couple of months ago Seymour Hersh did much the same thing and drew virtually no comment. Given his history and reputation, if he gets ignored I don’t feel too bad. It appears various political agendas hold sway over that subject.
Enough author whining, I hope you find tomorrow’s interview interesting if you decide to listen in…. Larry
