Let's talk about it.

Terrorism, Hostage Negotiation and Obama v. Congress

vor 4 Jahren

Terrorism at home and abroad is discussed, from the Boston Bomber trial of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, to ongoing Boko Haram crisis in Nigeria, and we explore the famous (and incomplete) saying, “We don’t negotiate with terrorists,” with retired FBI SSA Christopher Voss. Are drone strikes causing more enemies than they are killing? How can the US revise its method of dealing with threats around the world? We explore the bloody politics, along with the political hardball being played between Obama and the congress, and also look at the recent Robert Downey Jr. interview that ran amok, in this uncensored Crime Time, hosted by Allison Hope Weiner.

Christopher Voss is the managing director of Institute Security's Kidnapping Resolution Practice (since 2009) and a consultant with the Triad Consulting Group. He is also an adjunct Professor at USC's Marshall School of Business. He was previously an adjunct lecturer at Georgetown University's McDonough School of Business and the founding CEO of the Black Swan Group, a negotiation consulting firm.
A retired FBI agent, from 2000-07 Voss was Supervisory Special Agent in the FBI Crisis Negotiation Unit and the lead negotiator to the US National Security Council Hostage Working Group and the Group of Eight. For his negotiation work Voss has been awarded the Attorney General's Award for Excellence in Law Enforcement and the FBI Agents Association Award for Distinguished and Exemplary Service.
