The utter lack of understanding of threats facing America I experienced inside the government in 2002 has continued through today, and will be the undoing of America’s Constitutional Republic unless Patriotic citizens and leaders get educated and trained.
UTT is the best resource in America to do just that.
In 2006, while a Special Agent at the FBI’s Washington Field Office, I created and implemented a 2-week training program on the Global Islamic Movement, the Muslim Brotherhood, Islamic doctrine, the U.S. jihadi network and its modus operandi, and how local, state and federal agencies can attack this network.
It was a pilot program for what I hoped would become required training in the U.S. government or at least the FBI.
This course was created to help my colleagues at the local, state, and federal level who were unaware of who America was at war with, why they were fighting us, and what we needed to do to defeat them.
50 students from many federal agencies, police from over 10 states, analysts from the Departments of Justice and Treasury, and one active Assistant U.S. Attorney attended this program.
At the end of the program, the students overwhelming told me the training should be mandatory for “everybody.”
Here are a few of their comments from the After Action Reports:
“The training class was by far the best CT training I’ve received.” (FBI Special Agent)
“It is about time that we broke away from the archaic, overburdened, and ineffective classroom training of Quantico. This is the only course I know of where the instructors and presenters not only know their material, but believe in it and were willing to call things for what they are.” (FBI Supervisor, FBIHQ)
“Terrorism training of this style and content has been sorely missing from the FBI’s curriculum…This class was immensely more educational (than the FBI’s only other CT program “Introduction to Counterterrorism”) and truly an eye-opening experience, one that I feel should be a mandatory part of every IT agent and analyst’s career.” (FBI Special Agent)
“This training program has been revolutionary for me in the way I will approach my work.” (FBI Intelligence Analyst)
“I think this program should have been offered when I started with the NSA…I have taken CT/intel courses at the NSA but none were as comprehensive as this.” (NSA Language Analyst)
“In the last 10 years working CT, I have been looking for a comprehensive CT program…none of the USG programs have been as comprehensive as the pilot CT course at the FBI.” (Senior NSA official)
“This program far surpassed any expectations I may have had.” (Detective, County Sheriff’s Office)
“This course was resoundingly needed within the FBI Counterterrorism Division due to our combined misperceptions, misunderstandings, and misleadings about who the enemy we face today is and who the enemy we will face tomorrow will be.” (FBI Special Agent)
“Overall, this course was absolutely fantastic.” (U.S. Air Marshal)
“This program is what I and most of the American population thought that the FBI would be providing to agents…not to continue this course or one similar would not only be harmful to the FBI, but a direct failure to the U.S. citizens.” (FBI Special Agent)
“I can honestly say you walk away (from this course) with an abundance of information and education. It is my opinion that the FBI should make continuing this course a priority.” (Special Agent, U.S. Capitol Police Intel)
“I believe this training is essential before you can even begin working in the counterterrorism realm.” (FBI Special Agent)
“Having the opportunity to participate in this pilot program, that is, witnessing this visionary program come to fruition, is inspirational.” (FBI Special Agent)
“This class needs to be given to every SA (Special Agent) and analyst at the FBI Field Offices and HQ.” (FBI Special Agent)
Sadly, I was only able to run one more program like this in December of 2006. No other course of this kind has been taught inside the U.S. government since 2006.
Today, Understanding the Threat (UTT) is the only organization in America with training programs for citizens, police, leaders, business executives, and other community leaders which empowers them with tools to identify hostile communist and jihadi networks in their communities, and dismantle them using all lawful means available.
Citizens, police and others who attend our training today tell us (1) we have never heard this information, and (2) we believe this information is critical to protecting our community.
If you are a citizen, reach out to UTT at Info@UnderstandingtheThreat.com, sign up for UTT’s INTO ACTION program, and build a Liberty Team in your neighborhood to root out corruption and let liberty flourish.
If you are a police officer or sheriff’s deputy, encourage your department to host UTT’s “Understanding and Investigating Hostile Networks” course.
If you are a business executive, utilize UTT to consult with you to determine your unknown vulnerabilities to these threats – usually related to your hiring and contracting practices.
If you are a local elected official or a school board or city/county council, let UTT help show you the threat network in your local community so you can take proactive steps to deal with them.
UTT has a long track record of success, and we can help you and your community today.
Understanding the Threat (UTT) is the best resource in America with many tools to share with you to defend your community and keep it safe.
Get trained and get in the fight or fund the war effort!
