"Sam Logan presents rich, detailed data within a compelling anecdote-driven narrative. The result cements listeners' attention and learning."
- Nils Gilman, The Monitor Group


"Sam Logan's briefing to the Los Angeles Terrorism Early Warning (LA TEW) Group's Quarterly meeting provided a lively and accurate description of the current criminal threat situation in Mexico and Latin America. His research was impeccable, his presentation supurb. His timely information on the interaction of drug cartels with transnational gangs like MS-13 and enforcer organizations like Los Zetas provided useful context for understanding the transnational dimensions of Mexico's criminal insurgency/drug war."
- Lt. John P. Sullivan, LASD
