Joshua Hood, author of the action packed 2015 novel Clear by Fire, recently penned an insightful article for The Havok Journal.

In the article, Hood offers his expert analysis on several topics, all centered on former CIA Director David Petraeus. To read the article in it’s entirety please click here.

Hood, a decorated combat veteran who served in the 82nd Airborne division, is a now a full-time SWAT team member in Tennessee. Clear by Fire was his debut novel and the first book in a new series about ex-special forces operator Mason Kane. His second book, Warning Order, comes out June 7, 2016. You can pre-order it here.

Here’s a quick excerpt of Joshua Hood’s article:

In January, David Petraeus, co-author of the Counter Insurgency manual, and disgraced director of the CIA, is going to testify before the special house subcommittee on the 2012 Benghazi attack that killed four Americans.
