The U.S. Counterterrorism Advisory Team Celebrates Second Birthday

by W. THOMAS SMITH, JR. December 20, 2011
 
The U.S. Counterterrorism Advisory Team (USCTAT) recognizes the two-year anniversary of its founding (Dec. 19, 2009) this week. The anniversary follows an awards ceremony at the S.C. State House, last week, in which six team members were honored for their service and commitment to national security.
 
The USCTAT is a 20-plus member council composed of nationally recognized military, counterterrorism, and intelligence experts. The team is an initiative of the Family Security Foundation, Inc., a national security non-profit. The team also serves in ongoing affiliations with both the American Public Policy Alliance and the Washington, D.C.-based Center for Security Policy among other national security initiatives.
 
The USCTAT’s expert advisors and analysts include retired CIA officers, two former U.S. Deputy Undersecretaries of Defense, the former commander of U.S. Army Special Forces, and the founder and first commanding officer of SEAL Team Six (known today as DEVGRU).
 
Since 2009, the USCTAT has provided analysis to military units and many of the world’s leading news agencies. Additionally, the USCTAT’s Task Force India has tested and reviewed tactical equipment with reviews appearing in general consumer and law enforcement publications.
