France and Germany to Build New Jet Fighter

Seventy-five years after the end of German occupation of Paris, France and Germany have agreed to work together to build a new jet fighter to protect Europe. France and Germany are each expected to contribute €77 million ($83 million) to the project.

It’s nice to see two former enemies now work together militarily. Where would Europe be without the EU?

Audiobook: 'Sea Stories: My Life in Special Operations'

Retired Admiral William H. McRaven was involved in high profile special operations missions, including the capture of Saddam Hussein, the rescue of Captain Richard Phillips, and the raid to kill Osama bin Laden. 

He narrates the audiobook skillfully. I felt as though I was sitting in my living room hearing Admiral McRaven tell tales that made me feel great pride in being an American. Uplifting and highly recommended.

Ret. Adm. Bill McRaven interviewed by Michael Morell, former acting director of the CIA on the “Intelligence Matters” podcast.
