    Clint Lorance Interview

    Clint Lorrance discusses his recent Presidential Pardon for his unjust conviction of war crimes. He also discusses parallels between his politically motivated prosecution and the DOJ's relentless pursuit of the men of Raven 23. Hidden evidence, government witnesses guilty of murder who were granted immunity, and political pressure to cooperate with the prosecution's fictional narrative are just a few of the eerie similarities between the two cases that Clint discusses.

It is about time that this injustice is brought to light! These four men deserve to be home with their families! Please share and continue to bring awareness to this injustice dealt to these hero’s by our own government. Just think, if this can happen to them what makes us think that it won’t happen to us? Also to all those who are leaving one stars.......let’s agree to disagree. But know your bias opinion is invalid and you must not care about how these four men were railroaded by their own government for doing a job that our government asked them to do.

Thank you.

I was a September 11, 2001 survivor and former Secret Service Special Agent. Blackwater was a way for me to do MORE than I was capable of doing in the USSS. This Raven 23 event rattled my belief in Justice. This is a great podcast and Thank you for sharing the story!

Just keep listening, hear me out...

This review is for the liberals like me. It’s very easy to unfairly judge the work that the crew of this podcast are doing. It’s easy to assume that they’re biased and just pushing a narrative. But PLEASE, keep listening. There are some very serious concerns raised about how this incident was handled by the Government. Do your own fact checking if you must, but don’t just assume this show is a part of the conservative agenda, because it’s not. Don’t take my word for it, here it from the men themselves. Hopefully it can shed some light on a tragedy and bring justice where it’s deserved.
