Allen West was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, in the same neighborhood where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once preached.
He is the third of four generations of military servicemen in his family. West served 22 years in the US Army and retired as a Lieutenant Colonel.
Allen West is a Fox News Contributor, a Senior Fellow at the London Center for Policy Research, and regularly writes for numerous media outlets.
Col. West authored a book that debuted this past April, Guardian of the Republic: An American Ronin’s Journey to Faith, Family and Freedom, which we’ll discuss briefly.
Jeff and I will also ask Allen for his assessment of the situation surrounding the murder of Army Major General Harold J. Greene near Kabul, Afghanistan, about the Hamas – Israel war, about Jimmy Carter’s recent anti-Semitic Op-Ed, about Russia’s likely invasion of Ukraine and more.
Any conversation with Allen West is forthright and fact-filled and you will not want to miss this.
Jeff and I will also talk about a heinous event taking place in Iraq as ISIS has up to 40,000 Yazidis (ethnic Kurds) surrounded on a mountain where they have no food or water. Ed Morrisey posted “ISIS sweep forces religious minority to die of thirst on mountain” at Hot Air today: it’s a must read, but highly disturbing.
