The Manhunt for Saddam Hussein: A Story of Building Trust

Strap yourself in for this amazing debut episode of Season 2 of “The David Johnson Show” – The Veteran Talk Show.

This is the unclassified story of the manhunt for Saddam Hussein as told by lead interrogator Eric Maddox, a U.S. Army Veteran who spent 6 months serving in Baghdad interrogating members of Saddam Hussein’s inner circle.

In this episode, Eric shares the stories, challenges, and the process of how his team gathered all the key intel that led to Saddam Hussein’s eventual capture. He eventually shared his story about his experiences in Baghdad in his book “Mission: Blacklist #1”.

About guest Eric Maddox:

Eric Maddox joined the Army in 1994, spent three years as an infantry paratrooper (82nd Airborne Division), later joined the military’s Defense Language Institute, studying Chinese/Mandarin, and eventually got trained as an intelligence collection officer. In 2003, the Iraq war starts and Eric instead gets sent to a new mission in Baghdad.

Over the next year, Eric became an interrogator in Iraq, working with a Delta Force team on raids. There were already dozens of Iraqi prisoners. It was Eric’s job to make prisoners of war talk. He used his training and his techniques to help shape the future intelligence collection for the military and civilians around the world.

Since 9/11, Eric conducted over 2,700 interrogations while deployed eight times in support of the Global War On Terrorism, including multiple tours in Iraq, Afghanistan, South America, Southeast Asia, and Europe. During this period, he conducted over 300 interrogations and collected the intelligence which directly led to the capture of Saddam Hussein in 2003, while assigned to the Joint Special Operations Task Force during Operation Iraqi Freedom.

It’s a tremendous story that underscores the foundation of Eric’s current life as an author, consultant, motivational speaker, and interrogator. Learn more at https://ericmaddox.com/.

KFC Founder Colonel Harland Sanders Inspiring Life Story

To the public, many of the world’s most successful people are considered to be overnight successes.

However, behind the public eye, many of these people had to go
through and overcome lots of challenges in order to achieve the success
they are known for.

They have to persevere through hardships and work extra hard for years before hitting it big.

many successful people go through before the money and the fame starts
pouring in.

Today, almost everyone all over the world knows Colonel Sanders, the
jolly and serene guy who founded popular restaurant chain KFC.

starched white shirt and black tie, was even ranked as the second most
recognizable celebrity in the world.

Life by quotes: A natural treatment for all your life

If there is a  truth,
it is that life is short.

It is too short to learn everything and to enjoy it.

However, life is fair to us. It gave us lives in very
condensed forms that I call life quotes.

There are great men and women who were not like. They had
great visions and life gave them the tools to put their visions in practice.
Those people when they left our planet, kept the juice of their lives in
short sentences. Each sentence can be life by itself.
I had compiled these sentences and you will get your daily life in your Instagram
account when you follow my account alifebyquotes or my youtube channel. Here
is a quote from my youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_31O7rg752g
