Alex Weprin is reporting for the Hollywood Reporter Stockport resident and international counterterrorism intelligence expert Malcolm Nance is now fighting Russians in Ukraine. Nance has also been a longtime MSNBC on-air terrorism and national security analyst since 2007. In an appearance on Joy Reid’s program on April 18, from a “secure location,” Nance announced that he had joined the “International Legion of Territorial Defense of Ukraine,” a Ukrainian version of the French Foreign Legion. For 15 years, Nance has appeared on a number of shows to discuss intelligence-, insurgency- and national security-related topics. An MSNBC spokesperson this week denied that Nance is a contributor, though it is not clear when he parted ways with the network. He was identified as an MSNBC analyst on-air as recently as February 28, after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine had already begun. Nance said on Reid's show this week, “The more I saw of the war going on, the more I thought, ‘I’m done talking, all right? It’s time to take action here.” He said, “I am here to help this country fight what essentially is a war of extermination. This is an existential war and Russia has brought it to these people and they are mass-murdering civilians, and there are people here like me who are here to do something about it.” Read more at hollywoodreporter [dot] com.
