The Protectors Podcast ™ The assassin slips from the tree line, firing five shots into Colonel Joseph Alon, then seemingly ghosts into the shadows. In the 1970s information flowed at a snail’s pace, a BOLO (Be-On-The-Lookout) did not reach the intended audience for hours or days. An international watchlist was nothing compared to what we have today. Joseph’s assassin slipped away without a trace. In this episode, we discuss what the world was like in the 1970s from culture to technology. A further dive into Ted’s father and Fred’s background. Come along as we tell this story.
