  • (Day 732) Carlos Arredondo Is Changing The World

    On our way to interview Gaytri  Kachroo, the whistle blower lawyer for the Madoff scandal, we stopped at an Occupy Boston event.  There we found the powerful story of Carlos Arredondo, an immigrant from Costa Rica. He lost his son to a snipers bullet in Iraq. He subsequently persuaded the US government  to make things better for Vets and  their families. Here is his incredible story.

    Update 04/16/2013 - This story keeps getting better. Today an article in NBC News is calling Carlos a hero. During the Boston Marathon tragedy he was photographed with a triage patient in a wheelchair. His hand is squeezing the mans bleeding artery as they run for help. The only thoughts I have are, “of course, what else would a guy like this do?”

  • (Day 83) Annihilation

    Mideast Dubai Hamas SlayingThe lowest level on the trust scale is annihilation. This happens when trust is so low you believe a person or group of people needs to be eliminated. Most of the time people just act like their adversary is dead, they don’t take the ultimate step of killing them. So, then this sounded like a Hollywood movie; an assassination team sent to stalk and then kill a leader of a rival organization. But, according to the Associated Press that is exactly what happened.  The government of Dubia is accusing 11 Jewish people of killing a man. They said the murder was carried out at a luxury hotel yesterday.  Sometimes it is easy to forget that this kind of warfare is happening everyday in our world (reminds me of the poisoning of Alex Litvinenko). This James Bond stuff is all too real. If this accusation is true, then maybe these assassins believed what they were doing was as justified as killing cancer cells in the body.

    Questions: Is this an effective way to fight a war? Is this solving anything or will it just ratchet up a new level of war? Is it OK for a government to sanction killing someone if they threaten national security?  Are all tactics OK when it comes to national security?
