In this episode of Stratfor's Pen and Sword podcast with Fred Burton, a conversation with Dan Gabriel. Dan Gabriel was just out of college when the terror attacks of September, 2001 spurred him to action. He didn't join the military, though. He joined the CIA where he worked in counter-terrorism. And he traveled to Mosul and Afghanistan during both Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom, conflicts in many U.S. minds forever known as the ongoing war in Afghanistan and Iraq. He returned to Mosul, as a journalist and filmmaker, just as a coalition of anti-ISIS forces, from governments to individuals were fighting to take back the city from ISIS. Gabriel's film is nerve-wracking but compelling, violent yet deeply sensitive.
