Russia Ukraine conflict: Heavy shelling in Kyiv despite Moscow’s claim of ‘de-escalation’

The russian military machine maintains a very competent means of picking its targets frankly at will across this and other cities, and we’ve seen that right here in the capital today because of the ukrainian military censorship laws.

It’S pretty limited as to what we can say about what happened here today at the moment and, of course, the now familiar warning. I’M afraid that some of you may find some of the images in our report tonight disturbing u.

s intelligence sources say around a fifth of russian ground forces have pulled back from around kiev, but the city is still open to missile and artillery attack, and this is what Skepticism looks like kiev style, the beloved statue of queen oleg on mikhailivska square being sandbagged, but the russians are retreating.

We said why bother with all this 12 miles northwest of kiev, the once agreeable commuter town of europe for several weeks now, a focus of mr putin’s special military operation, also known as his failure to take the capital of ukraine dead and alive.

Direct Relief remains focused on providing medical support in Ukraine and surrounding countries to address health needs

The Manhunt for Saddam Hussein: A Story of Building Trust

Strap yourself in for this amazing debut episode of Season 2 of “The David Johnson Show” – The veteran talk show.

This is the unclassified story of the manhunt for Saddam Hussein as told by lead interrogator Eric Maddox, a U.S. Army Veteran who spent 6 months serving in Baghdad interrogating members of Saddam Hussein’s inner circle.

In this episode, Eric shares the stories, challenges, and the process of how his team gathered all the key intel that led to Saddam Hussein’s eventual capture. He eventually shared his story about his experiences in Baghdad in his book “Mission: Blacklist #1”.

About guest Eric Maddox:

Eric Maddox joined the Army in 1994, spent three years as an infantry paratrooper (82nd Airborne Division), later joined the military’s Defense Language Institute, studying Chinese/Mandarin, and eventually got trained as an intelligence collection officer. In 2003, the Iraq war starts and Eric instead gets sent to a new mission in Baghdad.

Over the next year, Eric became an interrogator in Iraq, working with a Delta Force team on raids. There were already dozens of Iraqi prisoners. It was Eric’s job to make prisoners of war talk. He used his training and his techniques to help shape the future intelligence collection for the military and civilians around the world.

Since 9/11, Eric conducted over 2,700 interrogations while deployed eight times in support of the Global War On Terrorism, including multiple tours in Iraq, Afghanistan, South America, Southeast Asia, and Europe. During this period, he conducted over 300 interrogations and collected the intelligence which directly led to the capture of Saddam Hussein in 2003, while assigned to the Joint Special Operations Task Force during Operation Iraqi Freedom.

It’s a tremendous story that underscores the foundation of Eric’s current life as an author, consultant, motivational speaker, and interrogator. Learn more at https://ericmaddox.com/.
