(00:00) When the Navy Seals finally captured al-Asawi, the “Butcher of Fallujah”, they thought it was the end of a man so savage that even Osama bin Laden distanced himself from the terrorist. His tactics were too loathsome even for bin Laden. However, al-Asawi mysteriously had a minor bloody lip while in custody and accused the Navy Seals of brutality. A derelict guard who told over five different stories agreed. The U.S. military went after three Navy Seals for brutality and court martials despite it being their word against a terrorist and a liar. Why? It’s a great courtroom drama that extends to the highest level of government.

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
