Interview 82: Steve Pieczenik

On this episode James talks to world-renown statesman and writer Dr. Steve Pieczenik on the history of false flag terror and how orchestrated events like the Sandy Hook massacre and Boston bombing undermine the integrity of America’s most fundamental institutions, particularly the press and higher education. The two also discuss Dr. Pieczenik’s wide-pieczenik-daggerranging experience as a crisis manager and how news coverage of foreign affairs has transformed over the past several decades.

Dr. Pieczenik is a critically acclaimed author of psycho-political thrillers and the co-creator of the New York Times best-selling “Tom Clancy’s Op-Center” and “Net Force” book series. Those highly popular works are rooted in his twenty years experience in international relations under five U.S. presidents.

Dr. Pieczenik received his B.A. from Cornell University, trained in Psychiatry at Harvard and holds an M.D. from Cornell University Medical College and a Ph.D. in International Relations from M.I.T. He was the first psychiatrist ever to receive the doctor of philosophy with a focus on international relations, and remains the only psychiatrist to have served as a Deputy Assistant Secretary of State.


Dr. Pieczenik worked directly with Secretaries of State Henry Kissinger, Cyrus Vance, George Schultz and James Baker, as well as the respective presidential administrations. He was also Senior Policy Planner under President Ronald Reagan.

His latest books are Steve Pieczenik Talks, Volume II and Teodoroa: A Voyage of Survival, Living and Love. Additional information, including info on all of his writings, is available at
