The Glenn Mitchell Show, 7/21/05 Hour 1: Hunting al Qaeda

Dallas, TX –

KERA 90.1's Glenn Mitchell Show

July 21, 2005, Hour One

Topic: "Hunting al Qaeda"

Guest: "Red"

Description: What's it really like for the U.S. Military in Afghanistan? Our guest this hour, "Red", was operations sergeant of a Special Forces Operational Detachment Alpha (A-team) known as Beast 85. When deployed to Afghanistan, the team was prepared for the suffocating heat, disease and the enemy itself. One there, however, they found that their greatest obstacle was the modern American military's increasingly risk-averse culture of "playing it safe." The anonymous author details his experiences searching for high-ranking al Qaeda and Taliban leaders in "Hunting al Qaeda: A Take-No-Prisoners Account of Terror, Adventure and Disillusionment."
