A man, allegedly shouting the name of his God, went to a shop-lined street, wielded an axe and randomly slashed and seriously injured eight people. To Brad Johnson’s eyes as a 25-year CIA Operative (ret.) this is a textbook terrorist attack. While similar incidents occur frequently in many countries, political correctness disallows labeling them terrorism. Innocent people would be alive today if intelligence agencies did their job to track down and arrest these actors before they act out.
Brad Johnson retired as a Senior Operations Officer and Chief of Station with the Central Intelligence Agency’s Directorate of Operations. Having served domestically and abroad, many assignments included areas of armed conflict. He served overseas in direct support of the War Against Terrorism and he took multiple assignments overseas as Chief of Station.
A certified senior expert in counterintelligence, surveillance and surveillance detection, his proven expertise in dangerous operational environments included the highest level of training available in the USG and globally. His tradecraft expertise was put to test in dangerous, difficult, and restrictive operational environments.
Brad is an enrolled member of The Cherokee Nation, a Federally Recognized Tribe.
In the summer of 2017, he founded the non-profit organization Americans for Intelligence Reform to create awareness of political corruption and the resulting diminished capabilities within the intelligence community. Serving as President, he brings you his unique perspective from deep, international experience and conservative, Christian values.
