This 3-day program gives law enforcement, military, and intelligence professionals a fact-based analysis of jihadi operations, their doctrine, and the significant jihadi network that exists in the U.S. today. Through presentations, videos, interactive sessions, panel discussions, and investigative workshops, the students will walk away understanding the broad scope of the threat, how it directly affects them in their daily duties, and how they can combat this threat at the local level.
Day 1: Topics covered – a detailed and factual understanding of the overall enemy strategy; history of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) in the United States; Muslim Brotherhood doctrine, organizations, and modus operandi; the extensive MB network supporting jihadis in the U.S.; and case studies and investigative examples to highlight how these networks operate.
Day 2: Topics covered – instruction on doctrinal Sharia (Islamic Law); how jihadis use Sharia in furtherance of their operations; how understanding Sharia fundamentally changes how we approach this threat in the military and law enforcement communities; beginning discussions on the investigative implications and military intelligence collection and operations; and using this knowledge to formulate predictive analysis.
Day 3: The final day is spent providing students with practical uses of this information in the law enforcement and military realms. Specific investigative techniques will be discussed giving students the ability to identify and pursue jihadis in local jurisdictions. Asset recruitment and handling, as well as interviewing techniques will also be covered. Through a number of training scenarios, discussions, and exercises, the students will be broken down into “Investigative Teams” and given the opportunity to investigate known Muslim Brotherhood entities in their areas and present their information to the class. Finally, the class will work through the process of building affidavits, discuss how to educate local city/district attorneys on this threat, and will be given resources to take with them to further their education.
