164. Why Is The World So Dangerous?

That’s the question former CIA officer Herb Meyer answers on this podcast. Meyer was one of the only people, maybe the only person, to predict the fall of the Soviet Union, and he offers insights on Orlando and the terror threat generally. They also discuss his brand new booklet, Why Is the World So Dangerous?

HerbMeyer1Jay and Mona then consider the left’s unwillingness to confront homophobia if it comes wearing a hijab, what killed JFK, the “see something/say something” fraud, Muslim allies in the fight against extremism, boots on the ground, and, naturally, some Clinton/Trump.

Music is the Neapolitan Dance from Swan Lake by Tchaikovsky.
