A Senior Counterterrorism Analyst, Gina Bennett has authored some of the earliest warnings of today’s terrorism trends, including the 1993 report that warned of the growing danger of Osama Bin Laden and the extremist movement he was fomenting.

Her analysis has been called “prescient,” “genius” and “prophetic” by major media and former government officials who recognize the insightfulness of her work nearly a decade later.

While serving as the Senior Deputy National Intelligence Officer for Transnational Threats, she was the principal author of the hotly debated 2006 National Intelligence Estimate “Trends in Global Terrorism: Implications for the U.S.”

Mom of five, Ms. Bennett is equally comfortable making copies of “Yam Jam” at the elementary school as briefing the President on terrorism trends, and can be seen doing both on the same day! Ms. Bennett says,

“For much of my career, I mistakenly led two separate lives—terrorism analyst by day and mom by night. But over the years I realized that everything I ever needed to know about securing our nation I learned as a child and practiced in parenting my own children. By sharing this knowledge and my experience, I hope all mothers will take up the mantle of national security mom in their own communities.”
