Traitors I Have Known: Counterintelligence’s Role in National Security

  • Date / Time:
  • June 23, 2020
  • 11:00 am to 12:00 pm

As the Central Intelligence Agency continues to field threats from China, Russia, Cuba and Iran, counterintelligence is more vital than ever. In this event, James Olson, the former Chief of Counterintelligence at the CIA, will illustrate how damaging spies can be to the United States’ national security and why counterintelligence is crucial to deterring them. Olson will discuss four traitors he knew personally and worked to uncover. Olson spent more than 30 years at the CIA, mostly overseas in clandestine operations. He is now a professor at Texas A&M University, where he teaches courses on intelligence and counterintelligence.
