Dr. Jack Wheeler
Architect of the Reagan Doctrine
The debt which America and the entire world owes Dr. Jack Wheeler
is virtually immeasurable: as architect of the Reagan Doctrine
is one of the handful of men most responsible for the defeat of the Soviet Empire in the 1980s.
He served his country as an "unofficial" liaison between the Reagan White House and anti-Soviet insurgents, pro-democracy activists and freedom fighters around the world, in Nicaragua, Angola, Mozambique, Ethiopia, Cambodia, Laos, Afghanistan, throughout Eastern Europe and in the Soviet Union itself.
With a Ph.D. in Philosophy, he is a former lecturer in Aristotelian ethics at the University of Southern California, author of several books, and is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records for the first free fall sky-dive in history at the North Pole.
From becoming the youngest Eagle Scout in history, to climbing the Matterhorn at 14, to swimming the Hellespont and living with Amazon headhunters at 16, to having once defeated Vladimir Putin -- and his KGB bodyguard! -- in arm wrestling, Jack Wheeler
has lived an amazing life, as noted by the Wall Street Journal
when it called him "the real Indiana Jones" (around the same time, the Soviet press called him "an ideological gangster").
