Gina Bennett

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.
