This Thursday Gadi and Dee welcome Former Navy SEAL Carl Higbie. Carl is the author of two books, "Battle on the Homefront: A Navy SEAL’s Mission to Save the American Dream" and his latest book, "Enemies, Foreign and Domestic: A SEAL’s Story".
Carl Higbie was on the Navy Seal assault team that captured the most wanted man in the Middle East–the Butcher of Fallujah, Ahmed Hashim Abd Al-Isawi. But instead of receiving the hero’s welcome the SEALs deserved, they were charged with prisoner abuse after Al-Isawi alleged they’d beaten him up. Higbie served as a witness for the defense in the 2010 trial that ended with the three SEALs eventually being exonerated of all charges.
But then Special Operations Petty Officer 1st Class Carl Higbie was railroaded out of the Navy SEAL community for publishing a book that disclosed no operational secrets, but expressed harsh criticisms of the US Military and political establishment. Higbie has suffered more than just the stain of having his service characterized as less than honorable; he is disqualified from using the GI Bill or other veterans’ benefits while the matter is being settled.
