In the days after Osama was found and killed by Navy SEALS, I began thinking about how we could cover this great news on Pundit Review Radio. I immediately thought of a former guest who has amazingly relevant experience. It was a true honor to welcome back to the show Eric Maddox, the man who masterminded the capture of none other than Saddam Hussein. Eric is a true blue American hero. When he got to Iraq in 2003, he had never interrogated a prisoner. Four months later, it was his interrogations that broke the hunt for Saddam wide open. Eric wrote an awesome book about his experience in Iraq titled Mission: Black List #1: The Inside Story of the Search for Saddam Hussein—As Told by the Soldier Who Masterminded His Capture. Here is my February 2009 interview with Eric about his great book,

Since Eric was on the show, he has become a civilian interrogator with the Department of Defense, having now completed some 2,500 interrogations during his incredible SEVEN tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. Eric is now preparing for his eighth deployment. He also told us that he is working with the screenwriter from Band of Brothers on adapting the book into a movie! It was a true honor to welcome him back to WRKO Boston and to talk to him about the mission to kill Osama bin Laden.
