It was pretty much an open secret that eXiled star columnist Gary Brecher, otherwise known as The War Nerd, was actually the site’s intellectual guru John Dolan. But on a recent podcast of Dylan Ratigan’s Radio Free Dylan, the host made it official: There is no Brecher, only Dolan.
Dolan’s voice is pretty recognizable. So even if Ratigan hadn’t been so explicit, people would have figured it out.
The War Nerd stuck with the Brecher facade for more than nine years.
Incidentally, the podcast itself, mainly covering the current Libyan conflict, is way more interesting than The War Nerd’s public outing. Worth the listen above.
