Brian Haig - Military JAG Thrillers

Brain Haig (son of Alexander Haig)- Retired LtCol. Rising Author - (Military/JAG/Spy thrillers - "Secret Sanction", "Mortal Allies" (and more))I just read "Private Sector" given to me by avid reader, Don Schuld (www.usslittlerock.com) and now I am hooked. Haig lived "INSIDE" the system for a long time. He knows a lot of people. His fictional books with devilish humor, intrique and timely real-world insight are rapidly gaining fans among readers of the genre.

NOTES FROM SPEECH...
In talking to a recent group of highly educated, well informed stock brokers and analysts in Florida, Brian named off five high profile military leaders in the Iraq and Afghan theaters. No one in the room could recognize a single name. Sadly, most of us were in the same league and may have vaguely recognized only one or two. THIS says Haig is representative of the difference in public awareness public importance of the war effort in the Middle East. The names he listed (like, John Abizaid) are the Eisenhowers, the Pattons, the Bradleys of our time. Yet we have no clue who they are or what they do or how they feel about their mission. List another name: Britney Spears - Everyone's hand shot up. The security of America is at stake, there are life and death decisions at work with the key commanders, yet Britney Spears takes the headlines.

Do we know the difference between the Shia and the Sunni branches of Islam? NOPE.
