1.0 out of 5 stars Sensationalist Lefty Drama, 8 Nov. 2013
By 
This review is from: Dirty Wars: The world is a battlefield (Wellcome) (Paperback)
Jeremy Scahill attempts to provide the reader with a laundry list of grievances committed by JSOC, however fails to understand the very dynamics of Asymmetric Warfare conducted by the very governments that provide his freedom to complain.

He initially states that he only began hearing of JSOC in 2009, this is complete rubbish. While researching for his book Blackwater, Mr Scahill will have without any shadow of doubt been exposed to JSOC operations, ex-members (possibly even serving). If he claims that this is not the case, I would suggest that Mr Scahill find another job as he is not very good at this one as the labour pool for Blackwater would be former JSOC operators.

This highlights the fact that he either knew this prior to making the statement in the book and film that he had not heard of JSOC proving he is not a credible nor skilled researcher/author or that he himself as an author claiming to write about the "truth" is outright lying!!
- Mr Scahill's reporting is no different from those he wishes to discredit!!!

I would also note (despite this being the review on the book) that when watching his documentary he seems to enjoy portraying himself as the Jason Borne'esque character out there in the badlands.

His ridicule for the very concept of security operations against terrorism is cheap and leftist sensationalism.

Buy toilet paper instead.

"his freedom", don't associate every conflict with the term "freedom", it makes you look dumb.

Thanks to the rant of this raving righty, it helped in my decision to buy the book! Keep at it Arnie, so that people appreciate the value of tru balance and true freedom.

So if you have the 'freedom' to complain and you use it, you are then classed as a 'lefty'? Some people do talk out of their rear ends.
