Warlord and energy trader--Ilario Pantano--an american hero

  1. Saw him on the Daily Show. Pantano seemed extraordinarily well spoken and composed. He's a better talker than the vast majority of the guests on that show, including many with careers in entertainment and journalism.

    Still, something about him seemed false and self promotional to me. I thought he was just a bit too slick, like he knew exactly what would make him sound best to Americans in need of a hero. I'm not sure he has any strong personal convictions other than his own ego.

    Who knows. Maybe I'm imagining it. Certainly made me curious about his book, but not in any hurry to send him a royalty. Anyone here read it?
