Lessons From History
As we recharge for the summer here at Steel on Steel, we begin embracing interesting thematic issues. John skips the boralogue this week and welcomes David Hathaway (www.charityendureth.com), former DEA Agent-in-Charge in Nogales, Arizona, who recalls President Nixon’s creation of the DEA through executive order. He explains the differences between the DEA’s mission and that of the FBI and CIA and surmises that America’s results from the war on drugs may be worse than the original problem.
The most important thing about history is learning not to repeat it. Retired U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel Ralph Peters (us.macmillan.com/author/ralphpeters) discusses his new book: Valley of the Shadow and how American military leadership can learn from their Civil War counterparts. He implores that we blinded by political correctness and learn from past failed socialist policies.
As always, join us online for our weekly Section 6 intelligence briefing, featuring analysis by John on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world.
