Welcome Michael Tanji
We would like to welcome Michael Tanji as the newest contributing member of ThreatsWatch. We are also quite pleased to announce Michael’s role as a member of the Board of Directors for the Center for Threat Awareness. With this announcement, Michael Tanji may be new to some ThreatsWatch readers, but behind the published scenes, we have been working very closely with him for several months developing new ideas and most recently contributing substantially to the soon to be published report - Achieving Victory in Iraq.
Michael brings a valuable mix of experience to the table and remains driven by an overriding concern for America’s national security. Previously a supervisory intelligence officer at the Defense Intelligence Agency, he is also a veteran of the United States Army, where he served in a military intelligence role. During his tenure in the intelligence community he developed a broad base of expertise in fields as diverse as information security, signal analysis, computer forensics, and indications and warning. He was also a contributor to analytic efforts of the National Intelligence Council and working-level policy efforts of the National Security Council. More recently he has spoken about intelligence issues at the Heritage Foundation and the American Enterprise Institute, and has contributed articles about intelligence-related issues to The Weekly Standard.
Michael Tanji is an associate of the Terrorism Research Center and an assistant professorial lecturer at The George Washington University. He also manages his own site, Haft of the Spear, as well as a membership in the intelligence community group blog, Group Intel.
We hope that ThreatsWatch readers will join us in welcoming Michael’s valuable seen and unseen contributions to ThreatsWatch and the Center for Threat Awareness..
