ERIK PRINCE, Founder, Blackwater USA, Former Navy Sea Officer

  • Erik Prince, founder of Blackwater USA, talks about the Afghanistan debacle, “it’s the embodiment of the collapse of…I just met with a couple of Afghans yesterday..that were still ready to defend the country, defend the capital up until the last days…And it’s…as if the ghosts were in charge…all those countries take note that this great power with the most expensive military in the world gets defeated by a…90% illiterate enemy force using weapons no larger than an RPG or a 50 cal. machine gun.”

GRANT NEWSHAM, Senior Fellow, Center for Security Policy, @NewshamGrant

  • Grant Newsham talks about Japan’s unrealistic expectations of American-made “counter strike capabilities”, “When the Japanese talk about counter strike capability…what they’re thinking of is some sort of a magic weapon like cruise missile. And you punch the GPS coordinates into it, you hit launch, it goes and destroys the North Korean or the Chinese missile launch site. And it’s unfortunately, it’s not particularly well thought out on the Japanese side.”

KIMBERLY HERMANN, General Counsel, Southeastern Legal Foundation, @Kimmiehermann

  • Kimberly Hermann talks about her organization’s work to preserve parents’ rights in K-12 public schools, “People refer to critical race theory a lot of times as a culture war. But at the end of the day, I say it’s a constitutional war.”
