Gina Bennett, a former member of CIA’s Senior Analytic Service, is a seasoned counterterrorism specialist who authored the earliest warnings of some of today's terrorism trends, including the 1993 report — the first report — that warned of the growing danger of Osama bin Laden and the movement he was fomenting.
Her analysis has been called "prescient," "genius" and "prophetic" by major media and former government officials.
Gina is often featured in documentaries and other media profiling her role in counterterrorism and as a pioneer for women in National Security and Intelligence careers, including a position on the Board of Directors of Girl Security.
