This show we have two extremely pivotal guest, Sarah Adams and Dave “Boon” Benton.  They are both survivors of the 2012 Benghazi, Libya attacks and are authors of the book, Benghazi Know Thy Enemy, A Cold Case Investigation.   Many will recall the book “13 Hrs in Benghazi” and the Benghazi attacks themselves.  Boon was one of the CIA GRS contractor whom went to the aid of Ambassador Chris Stevens and his staff at the Benghazi Consulate, and later defended the CIA Annex against al-Qa’ida terrorist.  Sarah was a CIA analyst and the on the ground targeter for the Benghazi CIA Annex.  Sarah was also a Senior Advisor to the US House of Representatives Select Committee on Benghazi.  Contrary to popular media accounts, these attacks were not the result of an anti-Islam YouTube video per the Obama administration, these attacks were planned by hardened al-Qa’ida terrorist, with the Consulate attack ordered by the leader of AQ Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiri.   In these attacks we lost four patriotic Americans:  Ambassador Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone “Rone” Woods, and Glenn “Bub” Doherty.  This investigation is to help bring these terrorist to justice.  Links to book, audio book, how to train with Boon and more… Intro and Outro Music by: The Tactical Twins, Jason Bieler and The Baron Von Bielski Orchestra and Tim Alexander/Fata Morgana Please subscribe and share our podcast with friends and family.  Visit our website for bios, future events and info at www.evosec.org  Like, follow and share us on Facebook and Instagram @evosecusa WE ARE PUMPED TO HAVE A NEW AFFILIATE LINK FOR ORIGIN AND JOCKO FUEL!!!  Help support this show by purchasing any of your JiuJitsu gear, Jocko Supplements, books clothing and more... link below.

Ep. 136 - Throw Back Episode - Andrew Branca - The Legal Authority on Self Defense Law
This throw back episode we go back to show 38:  This episode we have the preeminent expert of Self Defense Law - Andrew Branca on the show. Arguably the only attorney in the nation that focuses purely on self defense law giving him expertise that all of us should seek. Andrew is also the author of the book, The Law of Self Defense, which will educate you on the principles needed to keep you out of legal trouble. It can not be over emphasized, if you use lethal force you WILL go through some form of legal proceedings, even if it is "cut and dry."  As gun owners the majority of us do not focus on being prepared for the legal fight, this lack of education can certainly affect our lives drastically and can result in spending the rest of our lives in prison.  Also in this episode the crew discusses Legal Assistance memberships and their efficacy.  Lastly, in the accountability section Eric speaks on his recent experience in taking and graduating from the Rangemaster Instructor Development and Certification course.   For Andrew's wealth of online sources, and to access his Q and A sessions:  https://lawofselfdefense.com/ The Law of Self Defense book:  https://www.amazon.com/Law-Self-Defense-Indispensable-Citizen/dp/1943809143/ref=sr_1_2?crid=2HBRIXMZNPIXC&dchild=1&keywords=the+law+of+self+defense+by+andrew+branca&qid=1605902265&sprefix=the+law+of+self%2Caps%2C215&sr=8-2 Intro and Outro Music by: The Tactical Twins, Jason Bieler and The Baron Von Bielski Orchestra and Tim Alexander/Fata Morgana Please subscribe and share our podcast with friends and family.  Visit our website for bios, future events and info at www.evosec.org  Like, follow and share us on Facebook and Instagram @evosecusa WE ARE PUMPED TO HAVE A NEW AFFILIATE LINK FOR ORIGIN AND JOCKO FUEL!!!  Help support this show by purchasing any of your JiuJitsu gear, Jocko Supplements, books clothing and more... link below.
