Axe on Stop Imperialism
Listen as I discuss Special Operations Forces in Africa and North Korea plus the Chinese space program with Eric Draitser at Stop Imperialism.
So it appears that Neil Tolley, the general who accused me of fabricating quotes attributed to him, has either been fired or has voluntarily stepped down — though it’s also possible he was due to be replaced in any event.
At the height of the controversy over my recent story in The Diplomat about Special Forces in North Korea, I stepped down from my role as a regular blogger for the Japan-based publication. I did so specifically to draw heat away from a publication I was proud to work for.
Watch as I discuss North Korea, Special Forces and the military’s accusations (since retracted) that I fabricated a news story about the two.
I need a vacation.
My Wikipedia Entry
Somebody update this thing for me, please, as I’m not allowed (for good reasons) to do so myself.
David Axe Career Snapshot
The Australian Institute of International Affairs published an interview with me that they labelled a “career snapshot.” I honestly don’t recall giving this interview, but let me tell you: I was in rare form. Asked what advice I would give to young reporters considering taking up war journalism, my response was classic Axe.
Good news for fans of nerdy war books! I’ve just sold my latest nonfiction book to Potomac, the publisher behind my latest title FROM A TO B. My follow-on book will tackle a difficult subject: defining “warfare” for a new generation. SHADOW WARS will blend first-hand accounts of low-intensity conflict with expert analysis of what exactly we mean when we use the word “war.”
