at 35:35 I catch up with Clint Watts @selectedwisdom who is a real cool guy. He is really nice and down to earth and great at explaining complex foreign policy issues and national security threats. Before becoming a consultant, he served as a U.S. Army infantry officer, a FBI Special Agent on a Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF), as the Executive Officer of the Combating Terrorism Center at West Point (CTC) and as a consultant to the FBI’s Counter Terrorism Division (CTD) and National Security Branch (NSB). Clint earned a B.S. from the United States Military Academy and an M.A. from Middlebury Institute of International Studies.
